went for an afternoon run despite the 'lightly overcast' promised by the weather forecast being blazing sunhine. First 4k was brutal. Really muggy as well. Then as I got to around 8k big black clouds rolled up across the levels and at 10k the heavens opened and let loose a downpour of Biblical proportions, complete with thunder and lghtning, trees bending sideways etc.
I started heading back at that point. The rain, heavy as it as, was quite refreshing at first, but being out on the Somerset levels during lightning is a bit uncomfortable, when you realise you are the tallest point in sight. Got home without getting zapped though. Garmin read 20.67km as I reached the garden gate, but today my runner's OCD was not strong enought to get me to do another 430m to make it up to Half Marathon distance. 20.67 in 2:09 will do for today.
