I narrowly missed running a total of 100K last month, but told myself that May was longer (listen, that extra day makes a difference!) so I'd go for it in May. Woke up this morning on 97K and what do I see, after 3 days of sunshine? Rain persisting down, that's what. But one of the many things this programme has taught me is that I won't shrink in the wet and it's actually quite fun to run in the rain. So, indifferent to weather, off I went. Clocked 29.09 mins and just under 5K. But, wait for it, wait for it, that pushed the monthly total to a whisker under 102K. Or 63 miles in old money.
Am I pleased? Do ducks have wet bums? Too right, I'm pleased. I'm both pleased and astonished. I know some of you have done more, much more, but I think back to when I started, running a minute at a time. Lordy, how things have moved on. As many of us say, repeatedly, stick with this programme and it'll make you a runner and once you're a runner the world is your lobster!! And lobsters never mind running in the rain.
