Had the day off today and decided to do my run at lunchtime in this beautiful sunshine. What a disaster! Normally I run in the safety of dawn after coming home from work. So today I left the woolly hat at home and exchanged long sleeve with t-shirt. Also took on a route along the country side for which my normal runs are a bit unsuitable due to the lack of daylight. Okay off we go. Wow, wouldn't have expected that the sun makes such a difference. The first bit was still in shadowy area but as soon as I hit the open space the sun just became too much. I managed about eight minutes of the first run but the second run I managed even less. So I made the best of the situation and continued with a fast walk back home. I am a bit disappointed now but I will give this run just another go to my usual running time in the evening and hopefully also adopt slowly to warmer running conditions with the usual change of weather and daylight in the coming weeks.
