This running lark seems to be mind over matter. I get out the door first thing, before my brain tells me otherwise, but wk6 was difficult and daunting- until run3.
I set off in cloudy weather but a downpour started about 5 minutes into the run. My concentration from then on was to keep my car keys and remote dry and I think it was this distraction took my mind off the running. At the end, when the commentary said 'increase the pace' I was quite happy to do so.
The only downside was on return, in the shower - boy, did my nipples hurt! (I'm male by the way).
Never experienced this before, but on reading up on the internet it appears that chafing needs to be stopped and that can be achieved using micropore strips that come off easily after running.
So, there's something else to add to the 'to do' list before venturing out (plus sealable plastic bag for the car keys!).
