I enjoyed my run around the park so much on Tuesday I couldn't wait to do it again.
It's been showery all day here, and when I got to the park it was raining quite heavily. I was delighted to discover the park was completely deserted so I didn't need to worry about anyone seeing my wobbly, sweaty form plodding around the paths.
I'd managed about 20 minutes on Tuesday, and thought I'd aim for that. Well, I managed a full 30 minutes! I was delighted as it shows that my treadmill training has translated well to running outdoors, and that I could cope with the different gradients and cambers and weather conditions that you obviously don't experience with treadmill running.
I was, as usual, very slow - but I was always comfortable & in control. After about ten minutes the rain stopped, and I finished my run in bright sunshine. I actually loved running in the rain, and it kept me nice & cool.
I'm feeling very satisfied with myself this evening, and am now enjoying a lovely glass of wine.
