A Steady 5K and a random picture of my old hot air balloon 😁

So, at last it decided it was warm enough to run 😁

I had absolutely no desire to run in the snow, ice and sub zero temperatures of late !

Even today I ran in tights πŸ˜‚ hahait was good to get out .

It actually felt like quite a tiring run today , I really need to build my run frequency up again

My legs were aching a bit after about 3.5K but nothing much so no problem to carry on .

Only saw 1 other runner and she passed me in the opposite direction as we exchanged greetings 😁

So nothing spectacular about the run , just a 38 min 5k to keep me ticking over 😁

The picture is of the (or one of the) hot air balloons i used to own .

It's on my wall as I come in to the lounge and it always makes me remember what it's like to be free 😁

Hopefully we will soon have some freedom back ! 😁🀞

Well done, Ian! Good that you got out. It’s been too cold for me, too, but I’m on the IC right now after hurting myself on a walk!!

Lovely photo of the balloon. Freedom? I’m a bit worried about that! I just might go completely crazy so everyone will just have to Look Out! Who knows what I will do πŸ˜‚

Having the vaccine tomorrow, never thought I’d be so happy about an injection.

I think I’m ok. Hurt the front of my thigh walking on the frozen ground and trying to keep up with my friend! After a few days, I thing the problem is my lower back ad it also hurts all down the back of my leg. Just been doing gentle stretches and it’s much better today. I probably won’t run for a few more days.

That snow and ice was a right pain wasn't it! I didn't dare run - walking was dodgy enough in places - even across the fields. Rest up and hopefully you'll be back out there soon 😘

I didn’t run, either! On Saturday I was driving and couldn’t lift my leg properly to use the clutch! But it’s been much better today. Resting well. 😊

Well done Instructor57, I found my run yesterday loads better than the one before and like you I hadn’t been out for 6 days due to snow and ice. Your next run will feel much different πŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Nice photo of your hot air balloon, how cool is that to say you’ve owned some of those, not many people can say that!

Well done! I'm glad you got out for a run and seeing your post has cheered me up 😁I haven't been out for 9 days now - but hoping to sneak one in on my lunchbreak soon.

I forgot you did hot air ballooning - so cool 😎! I think I said to you before I've always wanted to go ballooning - my ideal venue would be the Serengeti or Masai Mara at migration time.
