The hardest thing about running right now is deciding what to wear! It was raining this morning, but not heavily. It wasn’t particularly cold, but breezy. At 7 a.m it looked pretty dark outside!
So - decided on shorts and tee shirt. My jacket is waterproof and wind proof, but on a shorter run is often too warm and I have trouble taking it off if I’m running a bit faster.
Essential item of the day - sun visor! Do I care what I look like, going out for a run in the rain wearing a sun visor? Not a bit! 😀. I’ve just bought a pack of them in different colours and I’m thrilled! As well as keeping the sun out of my eyes, they keep the rain off my glasses!
So off I went in the rain wearing a nice blue sun visor. Once I started running I wasn’t cold. I ran round to the infamous Deadend Track, but the gates were closed. Annoying! I could shimmy round the side, but there are nettles there and with bare legs I didn’t want to get stung. I just carried on out of the village and turned back just over half way.
I was trying for negative splits this morning. If I can do it, it makes the whole run more comfortable, but it all hinges on my pace for the first km. This morning I managed to do it, so the rest of the run went pretty much according to plan!
My hair was wrecked in the rain, although it doesn’t look wet in the photo, but my glasses were nice and dry 😀
Home, banana and water, stretches and a lovely cop of coffee. Now porridge with maple syrup 😀
