Have you ever had a day when your 🏃♀️ has to fit round everyone and everything else? Well that was me yesterday for CR3.
I got out the house in good time with all running paraphernalia at the ready; clothes and shoes on 👍, phone and armband 👍, water bottle 👍 earbuds 👍 All good so far!
Plan was to drop Tween MM’s girlfriend to the ferry then Tween MM would walk the 🐶 whilst I ran.
It started well, girlfriend didn’t miss the 🛳 and as the 🌞 was shining it seemed a good shout to stop off at the forest 🌳 🍁
We got out the car 🚗 with excited 🐶 so Tween MM started out down the path and disappeared into the trees.
Warm up stretches done (I felt a bit silly as lots of other people were also walking their dogs!) I went to my phone for Nike Running Club and some tunes. 😱 No signal!!
For a second I was all of a dither, should I just go back to the 🚗 and wait for Tween with 🐶, should I try to find her and drag her and the mutt off to walk and run somewhere else? Could I run at all without a coach and music? Would I get lost in the forest 🌳 as I’d never run there before? It seemed as though all my 🏃♀️ 😈 were coming at once!
Get a grip and stop faffing girl!!! Otherwise I’d have to do another warm up 😂
Tentatively I took my first steps running naked with just a phone stop watch for company. What a lovely 🏃♀️ 😁
The forest runs down to a creek so there were definitely times when I ran up fairly steep inclines and felt as though I was running backwards 😂 and I was occasionally dodging dog walkers 🤣 but with only me, the trees and some dappled sunlight it made for a good vibe (heavy breathing not withstanding 🤣)
I really don’t know what I’d been so worried about and will definitely run naked again. Shame about the shoes! 😁
