I got a high-five after my race tonight - a 5-mile off road race.
I was running with a large-ish lady for the first mile then her shoe lace came undone so I said “unlucky, I hope you catch up!” when I passed her. She caught up with me about half a mile from the finish and she said “finally, I caught you up! You just keep going and going!”.
Then she flippin’ beat me to the finish by about 50m but stopped to give me a high-five after the line. How nice is that?
I also bumped into a lady who I know from my local Parkrun. We chatted for a while whilst we were cooling down.
Anyway, I’m exhausted now so I’m off to bed. Goodnight!

I got bitten by a midge on my ankle, right on the outside bone, yesterday during my run. It’s been sore all day today but just got back from another run this evening and my ankle is a bit swollen and is really stiff.
I just hope it gets better for Wednesday cos I have a 5 mile trail race and I want to beat last year’s time.

I found out today, whilst babysitting, the joys of trampolining! And also that I’m quite good at football.
I spend about an hour on the trampoline with the younger girl then played football with the boy until it got dark. The only downside is that I think it’s jarred my back so I’ll be sore and stiff tomorrow for my long run.
With my 5k this morning I’ve done quite well exercise-wise today.

I just bought myself some Nike Free 5.0’s! I’ve been eyeing the Frees up for ages and wanted to get myself a pair but couldn’t see any that I liked at a good price. I finally found some plain black ones for a reasonable price online so I snatched them up pretty sharpish!
