Well I have to admit not feeling very positive about this autumn...
Work (as always) is at it's busiest. I had the first proper bone aching, head pounding, nose running, chest hacking cold I've had in years and storm Callum turns up!
Still despite the pouring rain I was determined to get out there today after two weeks of mini jogs around various cold symptoms and evening runs in the dark. So it was on with the rain jacket (pretty ineffective after about 3k in the driving rain) and off I went.
The result? The wettest feet I've ever had (think water squelching out of shoes at every step), a lost path as I squinted through vertical rods of rain, clothes soaked through to underwear and the need for a hot bath and hot chocolate before my hands worked properly again!
And - weirdly - an enjoyable 10k 🏃♀️ 🌨 😊
Happy running out there.
