Woo hoo new shoes and a PB

Good morning all!

So up I got nice and early for a 6k run, a bit worried and a bit excited to try my new shoes out. Of course they felt different , but with more room in the toe box I wasn’t scrunching my right foot up, so my shin and my calf didn’t hurt! Bliss!!! It gave me the chance to concentrate on how my feet are in the air and I realised I’ve been constantly flexing them, and as soon as I let them relax, I got a 1k PB! 😊😊😊.

I had one of those moments when the sun was just waking up and the field I was running along looked beautiful and I thought, ah, this is why I do it. It didn’t last long ‘cos then I had to go up a hill 😆.

Anyway, off to the wonderful world of work, I hope everyone has a smashing day. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️👍👍👍

Aaaah bliss, and lots of wiggle room! Methinks I was a bit silly up to now, but never too old to learn 😆.

Sounds great, no wonder you felt freer and faster when you weren't having to scrunch up your feet!

Surprisingly ok 👍😊 ThanksI went into town yesterday afternoon for some shopping,I think the walking eased the muscles 😀

But I'm having a lazy day today, binge watching handmaid's tale 👍

Ooooh I binge watch that as well! It’s pretty disturbing isn’t it 😳! I don’t think ladies running would be allowed in Gilead, I think that’s what it’s called. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️. Apart from running away. Enjoy 😊.
