Well today was going to be 5k... or maybe 7k. Given the torrential rain we’ve had over the past day and a half, at the 2k mark I gave up and headed back. I’m a runner, not a long-jumper, or even a swimmer
My poor clouds still hadn’t recovered from my Lyme Park jaunt. I’ll let them dry and brush them off later.
Still - 4.5k is better than 0k.
I also tried my controversial positive splits technique! Basically because I can’t stand wearing layers when running, and having to take them off, I set off like a rocket then I’m nice and warm very quickly. The downside is a tendency for the tank to run dry too soon still, first k in 5:47, the next three were slowed down by having to circumnavigate mini oceans, and the last 0.4k was still sub 6/k which I was pleased with.
Happy muddy running my friends
