I felt like a runner today

First run in the rain and quite windy as many of you have also experienced this morning. R1 of W9 went well. Even picked up the pace a bit in the last minute by striding out a little more which made it feel like I was actually running rather than just dragging my sorry self at a snails pace. So, I CAN run for 30 minutes! Who'd have believed it?

Just two more runs to go.......
