Well that was a very wet, soggy run, and I almost thought about aborting! 🀣 first kilometer, heavens opened, i was soaked, contemplated just doing the harry potter loop, then back home for a dry shirt πŸ€” then carry on, but decided to carry on, and the rain didnt really stop, the whole run 🀣 probably the wetest run i've done, was always quite lucky during c25k, only a few damp runs. It's funny really, as i think the rain, made me run a bit faster, i think i did 5k, in 39.20 mins, quite fast for me! Anyway onto the canal, not the best idea really, some very big puddles, almost lost my shoe, at one point 🀣 infact in places, would have been easier swimming πŸ¦†πŸ¦†get to about 7k, legs feel ok, actualy, i think all the rain, avoiding puddles, keeping my earphones in, kept falling out, as my ears were getting so wet, took my mind of any feeling of being tired! Good job my daughter didnt run with me, she was worried about her eyelashes! 🀣 anyway, kept going a bit further along canal than usual, wanted to test distance for a 10k, rather than doubling back. I'm so glad i stuck with it, heard about bambi, having to isolate over xmas, and another friend of mine, got covid, just never know what's going to happen!

Anyway, i ran today, so i can run christmas day, weather looks good for down here 🌞 i picked up our xmas dinner, from m+s this afternoon, prebooked, time slot, so was able to jump the queue, by the way, i'd showered and changed, run for your life! 🀣

Well i hope the new restrictions with tier 4, doesnt spoil everyones xmas, too much, maybe next year, we'll be back to normal, happy running!!!

Ps, cant add my stats, did 10.05k, 80.27 mins, average pace 8.00/km!

Another 10K- that’s amazing-you’ve definitely got the stamina for those big runs now. You did really well considering the soaking conditions you ran in. Come New Year’s Day, I’m hopefully out for a longer one.

Aha! Nice one Peter πŸ˜€ and another 10k in the bank for you πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 It has been so wet and it sounds like you had a fair bit to contend with what with earbuds falling, giant puddles etc. You know you’re going to have to get yourself a snazzy headband like me!! Works a treat keeping those earbuds in πŸ‘πŸ» Love the way you’re now just clocking up these 10ks πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ well done and happy Christmas to you too! I’ll also be out there for an early run Christmas Day all being well πŸŽ„πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„πŸ¦Œ (definitely first time I’ve ever said that lol πŸ˜‚)

Well done on getting out there!

I did a soggy short run on Monday...but decided Wednesday was too awful. Although clear and bright today, I’m skipping it, as I have also set my aim on a long jog for Christmas Day. Forecast is good πŸ‘πŸŽ„

Same here, today is nice and sunny! 🀣

Brilliant run Peter...I've only had the odd one as you describe and there comes a point early on when you decide whether to head home or carry on! πŸ€”Then after choosing to keep going and just when you feel like you can't get any wetter, your shoe goes in a big puddle and you realise how wrong you were πŸ˜‚

Makes you feel a bit crackers when everyone you see is running for their car and you're just running...welcome to the mad house πŸ€ͺπŸ‘

Typical πŸ˜†Also 48 and though I do sometimes think I'm mad to be out there those are the runs I love most looking back, makes me feel vital...when you're running in a gale or the pouring rain you certainly know you're alive 😊

Blimey, i wish i was still 48 🀣 i'm actualy 57, my username stems back to my school days, everything was marked 44!

Thanks, just mixing it up a bit, sometimes it's nice to go out, and just see how it goes, i've got more time, as i'm of work, till jan 4. There's nothing wrong with doing 5k, been reading other posts of people not able to do that yet! πŸ˜€
