Commitments messed with my Schedule. AND I MISSED RUNNING!

My scheduled Monday run was scuppered by work and traffic. Then Tuesday by baby sitting (really not complaining about that one). I got home yesterday and changed into my shorts and tasteful(?) fluorescent top, then the heavens opened. 'This will test your resilience' said the voice from the couch grrr. Five minutes warm up, stretching and stepping, the rain had eased off a bit so off I went. I had a few technical issues which messed up my timing. Non of that mattered because I actually enjoyed the run, well most of it. I never thought I would say that, or that missed running and couldn't wait to get back out.

Choice of podcast... Simon Mayo Confessions. I was slightly embarrassed when I caught myself laughing but it certainly keeps the 'stop running' gremlin at bay. Mixing up what I listen to really is helping and I'm going to try the sounds of nature soon!

  • Well done for getting out in the rain. It's fine when you're out. It's just the thought of it which is a bit off-putting

    Those confessions are hilarious sometimes. You'd have trouble running if you were laughing that much. Whatever makes that run go well is fine. It keeps you happy and smiling so that's all to the good. Better than medicine isn't it!

  • Well done! Running in the rain is a rite of passage. Running naked is the next step ( no headphones - you can keep your clothes on!)

  • Yep best I keep the togs on I don't want to scare the locals. Or get locked up.

  • brilliant, sounds like a great run :)

  • I like the idea of the Simon Mayo Confessions podcast - I'm always looking for something different.
