So cold!

Anybody would think there was a Bank Holiday approaching, it's turned so cold. 7degC this morning. It was warmer (a bit) in March. I've run in much colder than this but I just couldn't settle to it this morning. I think it was because it was so unexpected and different - I was out in just my vest (!) two days ago. Well, shorts too. Only did 15 mins today and came home to look for some gloves. Pah!

might keep my vest on for run tonight then :)

Sorry, it's my fault. I booked the dog in for a haircut. Normally it snows when he's just been shorn so I think with the hail and rain we've probably got off lightly.

(I've just invested in a long sleeved t-shirt due to the cold, which seems ridiculous as it's June next week!)

Interesting you should say that. I had a haircut myself yesterday!! Perhaps we're jointly liable?!

Ha Ha. No, I can truthfully say it wasn't as dramatic as that! I can get a bit shaggy sometimes but not like that.

I have bailed on my run tonight because of the weather. I must have turned into a complete wimp because It wasn't that long ago I was running in sub zero temps and snow. But, at the end of May, you expect something better than howling winds and torrential downpours. Instead I'm curled up at home drinking wine and eating chocolate - hoping for better weather tomorrow :-)
