Well I did it! Despite the weather and the rain... I decided it was raining light enough to complete run 2. So went out and ran! Managed to step on glass (couldn't avoid it) and a piece went through the sole like a hot knife to butter, luckily it didn't cut through. I could hear it digging it's way in so didn't put too much pressure on the foot and slowed down just in case. Eventually had to stop and take it out, didn't want to end up in A&E.
With all that happening, still managed to run a minute faster than run 1....happy!
fyi, Just checked my running socks, and the right one has a little hole in it...surprise surprise.
