First 5k - I did it!!

Set out today with this beaut! 5 minute warm up walk gave me time to pick up the poop πŸ’©! then set off. But only a few minutes in I felt disaster looming - my leggings felt like they were going to fall down! Aaaagh! Anyway managed to hitch them up and hoped for the best. Anyway they stayed up .....phew!

The rest of the run was tough, I had planned the NRC 4K, because I had the dog there was a lot of off road muddy bumpy tracks as I am used to running on tarmac I found this tough. I really really struggled to 4K (I was talking to the dog f**ing and blinding!!) but at that point I had just got to a more familiar slightly down hill track so I decided to keep going to get a bit nearer home, by the time I got to the house I was so close I went into the garden and ran round it several times until I reached the 5k!!!

So so pleased πŸ˜€πŸ€©

That seems a remarkably clean Labrador after going on muddy tracks. I used to go out with a yellow dog and come back with a brown one.

Well done on the 5km. πŸ‘

Congratulations! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I was so excited when I did my 1st 5k that I couldn't sleep that night - it sounds as if you had an eventful time with your lovely hairy pal (if I tried running with mine - a husky - he'd pull me off my feet & I'd be dragged around on my face - I don't think that counts as a run!), but you both managed it. Happy running!
