Happy Belated Birthday to me!

It was my birthday yesterday so I treated myself to a day off running so I could go shopping for new boots  instead.  I even got my lovely, husband to share my day off and come with me which was amazing as I can still remember the day 17years ago that he vowed he would never,  EVER shop for shoes with me again.

Anyway I'm now 38 years old which means I have two years to reach my aim of being fitter and hopefully thinner by the time I'm 40 and I'm feeling rather positive as I think I've done really well these past couple of  months.

If you'd have asked me a few months ago what I was expecting to get for my birthday I'd have listed the usual chocolates, bubble bath and furry socks.  And while the reality yesterday did seem me unwrap chocolates, bubble bath, furry socks - I also requested and received a long sleeved running top, running socks and running gloves too (from the above mentioned lovely husband)

And these lovely new gifts have worked their magic as I'm just back in from completing a week 3 run which saw me running 2 x 90 seconds runs and 2 x 3minute runs :)  I wasn't fast by any means but I did it!

Yay me!
