Got up this morning at 6.30am for my W1R1 and although it took me half an hour to get to the front door I was ready to go until I opened the door and saw it was raining My first thought was to give up before I'd even started - but as I'd got up early I found out a rain-coat and headed out.
I did forgot to take a cap though, so my glasses were steamed up and full of rain so I couldn't really see where I was going but I finished it. I found I had to stop about half way to stretch out the muscles in my legs which were hurting by then - but they were fine afterwards and I managed all 8 minutes! yay!
... and just to add insult to (I'm not going to say it!) - the sun is shining now
Onwards and upwards...
