Wet start to week 2

I intended to do my first week 2 run last night but I got home late which meant I ate late which gave me the perfect excuse not to do it! Woke up this morning to howling wind and pouring rain but I went out regardless 😁 I knew if I put it off again I was risking giving up. It was nice to run in daylight and to use the park instead of sticking to the streets. I managed it all and felt great at the end. My only issue was a runny nose from how cold it was and soggy feet from unavoidable puddles. Nice hot shower after and I was starting my day in a high. Wish my week day schedule allowed for a morning run!

Well done! I love morning runs the best too!

It is so easy to put it off, well done you for getting out there and battling the elements. I have never managed a morning run but it is probably the best time to do it when the air is fresh - maybe a little too fresh today though, eh?

And the nose... couldn't run without my tissues but I am sure it is all for the good.

Go you.... well done for getting out there.. If we waited for fine days to run in the UK, we would never get out!

As I have said in some earlier posts, when you are wet, you are wet, and the hot shower...bliss! :)

I think running later in the day is really commendable, if I did not do my run in the mornings, I am sure I would have given up...Brilliant! :)


Well done! I have had similar issues. Went out the other night and I was freezing. Even after my run, cold through to my bones. Realised it's because I am not wearing enough so I went and bought some long sleeved base layers and some fingerless gloves.

I cannot tell you how much of a difference it made when I went out last night all layered up!!
