Last night I ran for the longest I have a ever ran. 28mins around Bristol harbour. It was hot, I felt I was going to puke, but I did it and got to the end. It felt good. I am on week 7 of an 8 week programme of c25k with the brilliant Mel Bound of @thismumruns. Today my legs are stiff but that's okay as it is reminding me of getting out there going for it.

  •   thislittlecorner Very well done, it's good to feel those muscles ache 6h
  •   littlegreenshed @thislittlecorner love that you are back here. Xxxx 6h
  •   thislittlecorner Ahh Thankyou love, I'm not very good at the discipline of waiting, 2 weeks was hard going, I made it, phew! I make myself laugh saying that as I know for some that would be easy it's good to be back though with fresh eyes and enthusiasm! And I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone's pics and news 6h
  •   peregrinationz Good on you! I'm up to week 8 of the nhs c5k program - 25 mins three times this week! It's hard work but surprising when you think back to where you started (where I started anyway!! ) 6h
  •   littlegreenshed @peregrinationz I know I feel the same. Proper bonkers. Its just mind over matter I suppose. 6h
  •   vicky79uk Well done! I went from nothing to marathon in a year so know exactly what you mean. I still always find the first 10mins the hardest. Keep at it and enjoy it if you can- clears the mind and feels amazing ti feel all the bodies muscles working together- its amazing what you can achieve when you put your mind to it 6h
  •   peregrinationz Yeah, that still sounds mad @littlegreenshed 6h
  •   lauranel83 Ohh well done you, I'm doing that too!! I am on week 6 - did 2x 10 minutes with 3 minute walk in between last night. I honestly didn't think I was going to make the last few minutes but kept telling myself how annoyed I'd be if I got home and hadn't completed this one! Totally mind over matter I think. And I've discovered I actually I really like running (not so much in this heat though ) x 2h

Strawberry picking. Nothing tastes better than a ripe sun warmed strawberry straight from the plant. Heaven.

This evening I ran. First time in weeks after suffering quite badly with shin splints it felt good to get back on it. I feel taller and stronger. On the way back I saw this beauty. One for #rosesaroundmyhood

Every time the bin is moved one snaps off. I'm not complaining too hard as I get to have foxgloves in the house. #natureinthehome
