Since it was pouring down first thing this morning In decided to wait until it had stopped raining as don't have a suitable jacket. Eventually it stopped raining and it looked lighter, so put on a couple of tops and a lightweight wind proof jacket, hat and gloves. 10mins into the run and the heavens opened, strong gusts of wind followed by horizontal rain. No point turning round so carried on for another 5mins before heading for home. Logic was "I am wet now so may as well continue". When I was running the last minute another runner sped past me - this is someone I have seen out running over the last couple of years and she goes at one heck of a pace. Something to aim for!
After problems with MapMyRun I am trying Runkeeper, in the past have started the workout at the same time as starting the 5mins walk. This time decided to start the workout when the run started and stop at the end of the 30mins. So you can imagine how disappointed I am to see that in fact I only ran 3.82km in the 30mins. I know my pace is slow 7.5min/km, the route I am going now takes in a couple of long hills and so far have managed to keep running up them although very slowly. Looks like I am further away from achieving 5k than I hoped for and will need to run for another 8mins at least.
So the delight running for a full the 30mins was overshadowed by the disappointment in the distance achieved.
