After the Storm

The storm passed through last night, woke us at 6am, but otherwise no damage here. Decided I’d better get out for a run,  and I chose a route without trees (just in case). Since I have a 10K in 3 weeks,  and another in 4 weeks time (good planning, eh?)  I thought I’d better try some speed work.

I learnt three things today:-

1. Intervals run into the wind and rain are Hard Work.

2. If this bit of road is underwater,

then the section that usually floods will be like this:-

3. Running intervals after running through those two puddles sounds like this (400m fast bit) “squelch squelch squelch squelch squelch squelch” (then 90 seconds recovery) “squeeelch squeeelch squeeelch squeeelch squeeelch”.
