Week 9, Run 1 today... I just don't believe it, week 9 already, it's flown by
I encountered snow, bitterly cold strong wind blowing me backwards, rain and then sunshine - all in a 40 minute outing, how very ridiculous! It didn't put me off, I found the changes quite comical and refreshing, I think I'd have run through anything the heavens chucked down at me today
My run started as usual on the canal, but I soon had to change up the route and turn back as the slippy mud, combined with the rest of the peculiar weather was rendering it impossible to stop sliding all over the place, so onto the roads I went, carefully avoiding the cruel hill that beat me in week 6.
Laura was significantly more informative for this run and I welcomed her extra time updates and encouragement as I snailed along the streets, me versus the elements, just my own waddley bottom today, having abandoned my beaked canal buddies in favour of the safer, mud-free paths.
30 minutes passed very quickly, with plenty of road runner distractions, dog poo hazards (disgraceful, I have good mind to write to the council to ask for more poo fine warning signs, it was making me quite cross and fuelled a good 5 mins of faster fired-up snail running;)) and lots of passing cars, with passengers likely amused at my efforts to move forward against that wind
Quite enjoyed my odd run today, no thoughts of stopping and no gremlins to contend with - phew! Just two more runs til badge day
Happy running all, Nat x
