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!
Rain, Rain, Go Away!
Come again another day.
Unfortunately I think that ‘other day’ was today, because it was pouring down this morning. Really heavy, “soaked-in-2-minutes” type rain. I did wobble briefly and wonder about switching my schedule around, but my new shoes were desperate to get out for a run so who was I to deny them?
Also, at the back of my mind was the thought “what if its raining like this on April 22nd?” I guess its better to know what its like to run in!
So off I set. It was wet. Roads were full of puddles. Not too many cars about, but huge thumbs up to the driver who waited for me to run past the ginourmous puddle before driving though. I think I would have drowned otherwise.
Whilst taking the photo of my new trainers on the edge of the road-spanning puddle, thought I’d do a quick self-portrait of myself. Particularly love the rain drops on my chin and nose – most attractive I thought! Still had 2.5M to go at this point, you can see how much I’m enjoying it.
Anyway, lots more ‘hardcore’ points for me, and another tick on my schedule. Week 4, Run 2 6M Steady DONE!
