Short n flat
For the first time in my adult life I wore a pair of shorts yesterday to run. I've always been self conscious of my legs and preferred to wear 3/4 leggings in summer and full length in winter. But I decided it was time to get the legs out and wear shorts. My legs ain't perfect but they're reasonably toned, not much cellulite and only a couple of wee broken veins. Not bad for a 45 yo mother of 3 who's been an exercise hating lazy bitch for most of her adult life!
I took Delilah out for a spin this morning. The plan was a wee 10 mile loop but I managed to hit a pothole and got a flat tyre. So only managed 6.6 miles. I've had a fair amount of abuse (you know who you are!!) when I admitted that I don't know how to fix a puncture and don't even own a tyre pump. I may be inexperienced but I'm not dumb. Once I learn how to do it I'll be fine. In my experience there are no stupid questions. If I don't know how to do something I'll find someone who does and ask them to teach me.
And now I have the excitement of waiting for a Wiggle parcel to arrive :-)
