Dressed yesterday with a run in mind and set off to complete my work activities before arriving at the park.
Big black clouds, heavy rain and gale force winds. Sitting in the nice warm car putting my socks and shoes on. Shall I, shan't I debate going on in my head. Never wanted to run in the rain, let alone the rest of the horrible weather we had yesterday.
But out I get to get a lash of rain in my face but undeterred I start. It was tough. Nearly ended up in the loch as the wind buffeted me. Sun came out and the rain stopped. After rounding the top of the loch and heading down towards the 2.5k mark the wind was pushing me along and so decided to continue and complete the complete loop instead of turning back to just do the 5k. There was plenty of gale gusts, plenty of rain, the path was muddy,nathe sun came out, it snowed but I did finish my 6k in 42 mins.
At times I thought I could fly and running with the wind behind you is a great feeling, reward for the slogg when running into it.
I loved my run yesterday I may have been able to go further......maybe next time.
I am going to need some tech though to start timing and seeing how far I am going...any reasonably priced recommendations....please.
I feel great 😄
