Okay, so it always means it's quite stop starty... and we had to visit two playgrounds for my little boy to hurl himself about on the swings / monkey bars for a bit. But it was nice to be out with them rather than just me on my own. And, naughtily... it's nice when I can run up the super steep hills and they can't even ride their bikes up them. Go leg power!!! I'm still blown away by the fact that I can run up hills I used to struggle even to walk up. It is the best feeling!!
I also got treated to some new trainers today (I LOVE surprises like that!). My current ones I bought in February have done 500 miles already and are starting to wear on the mid-foot bit. They definitely need replacing. Already! That whole 'running is a cheap hobby' thing isn't really holding water.
In other random running news, I was brave and revised downwards the time I think I can do the Robin Hood Half Marathon in in September. Originally I put is at 2:10, but I *think* I could get under the 2 hour mark and have now put it down as 1:55. Though I'm (obviously!) petrified, I am really excited about running it. The me who didn't run at all 18 months ago wouldn't recognise this version of me saying stuff like that!
And that, in a nutshell, was Day 207. I ran, I had fun, I still love running. YAY!
