So I decided in bed last night that I would do the first part of my usual route and then shoot off towards the next village, round the fishing ponds then back. (No outdoor gym this side of the river) When it came to getting myself up though - what a battle! Duvet too lusciously warm! Eventually succeeded!
I have a Queen album on the phone. That was fine to run to at first but got a bit samey so switched to comic mode and listened to Monty Python album. Worked wonderfully to keep mood light. I'd forgotten just how silly they are
Most of my running was into a very cold easterly wind. Then the heavy rain started. Quickly donned my thin waterproof - what a huge difference to my warmth! Beany hat on and off again. I had gone out with no particular plan, really enjoyed it and ended up covering 9.96km in 91 minutes. I am quite pleased with that! And I really didn't mind the rain, although it does sting your face a bit. I'd say that's a really good run for me. In fact I am smiling more as I think about it.
