    Wow well done amazing. You definitely deserve tea. I literally only jogged half a mile today. I’m tired. This morning started with my face exploding from hay fever. Then at 5am Loki started squeaking his fox. Then Sox vomited on my rug. I’m hoping for a longer one tomorrow.

    Oh well done @Ringypie , that's amazing!
    7 miles for me last night, in the woods to try and keep out of the wind a bit. It was really nice until we came out on the road for the last couple of miles full into the wind, I felt like I was going backwards at some points! Anyway managed another PB, fastest ever run @ 9:21min/mile. I actually think there was something wrong with Strava, it can't be possible to go that much faster and not feel like you're going faster. Previous best was 9:56, that's too big an improvement to be real I think!

    The wind was awful yesterday. That’s an awesome time, don’t be too quick to think Strava was wrong, you’ve been doing a lot of training, I’d take it!!

    I’ve been awol sorry. Don’t know why really. Had two rest days this week and feel worse than when I was running every day!

    Nice 7 miles with husband this morning, a new “countryside” route, which was okay considering I’m so clumsy and normally don’t cope well with more difficult under foot terrain. It was faster than my LSR pace should be but slower than my base pace, so a bit “no mans land”...good though. Just struggled to my weekly target with 21 miles.

    It seems everyone is going well :) lots of great improvements going on too! Awesome.

    6.37miles of exploring, where I wanted to get too was further than I thought! Not a bad pace though.

    Started to get too warm so we did the last bit of the loop back home as a 2.9mile walk :)

We also stopped to say hello to some baby alpaca’s. I’ve put in dog chat what a little star Loki was. Favourite moment of the day was seeing Loki kissing a baby dachshund.

    I dropped Loki off then took Sox for a two mile walk in the woods. Dropped him off and got out for 5 miles on the bike. Now on the sofa.

    Im tired now curled up on the sofa with tea and toast. Sox is very interested in the toast. I’m trying to up the time I’m out the house so the boys are ok when I go back to work. This means more time on the bike or running nothing else you can do.

    7.5 miles today. Hubby has done a 7 day streak of 10k’s so I said I’d do the last one with him. So proud of him he’s done amazingly! Finished back in the village so I trotted down to the yard to tuck Ringo up in bed as a cool down.

    It’s awfully hot isn’t it. I did 2 miles just down to put Ringo to bed then home again, took my time but was still a sweaty mess.

    It was like being on holiday this morning when I went out...so warm and a little breeze...and some right grumpy so and so's out there! I had a nice run though, just over 5k, that's all. I'm having a rest day tomorrow, I've already decided :)

We went out early as it’s so hot and bumped into a hedgehog Loki was terrified so we had to go the long way around as he wouldn’t walk around it.

    That's a huge hedgehog!

    Woody found one in our garden once and very gently brought it to show the OH. He got covered it fleas!

    5km for us this morning, it really was warm, even early.

    Loki thought it was huge as well maybe he didn’t want fleas.
