Janathon Day 17. The one with the chest torch

A run. After work. In the dark. On my own. Mmmm, not so inviting.

A chance to finally try out the chest torch I bought myself? Oh well, s new gadget – now you’re talking!

5K later, after running in our dark little lanes I can say the chest torch is a huge hit. I could see at least 50m ahead of me, I could see my Garmin, and traffic definitely slowed down (and one car even stopped) because they could see me coming so clearly. I felt brace and safe. Also, I felt extra hardcore when it started sleeting on me. Running with chest torch

Janathon Day 14. Ruuuuuuun!

(That’s a long run by the way).

Finally up and out today, for a 7 mile up and down run, through woods, along paths and down fields. Whilst it’s true my nose ran more than I did (i.e. constantly), I did find a new footpath to try. It turned out to be less interesting than I’d hoped.  I also demonstrated amazing willpower in running past my own house with my Garmin showing 6.5 miles in order to round it up to a respectable 7 miles. Impressive!

Janathon Day 7. A RUN!!!

It’s a miracle! A run! I made it out for a run!

In my defence, I have been full of cold all week and breathing is generally considered helpful when running. This Sunday morning I found I could actually breathe so I had no more excuses I  pulled on my trainers, and headed out.

The large puddle was a surprise, I guess the ice further down the lane shouldn’t have been. Despite that, it was a good 4.7 miles. Well done me!
