Week 1 Run 2 complete :)

Waited until the "warmest" part of the day (mid afternoon) before setting off, and managed it ok :)

Main problem was with the podcast - it decided not start start at the beginning!! Fortunately I managed to find the start of the second run, walked to roughly where I started running last time and played from there - managing to find an extra 90 second walk/60 second run mid podcast once Laura said I had finished to ensure I actually did the correct number of runs. Grr. Have now deleted everything from my ipod and put the podcast on again, so hopefully next time it will work fine!

Tomorrow - off to Decathlon to get some clothes for when it gets colder!!

New running gear = 😍!!!!!! I have a jacket I never wore because even though I ran through last winter, once I got running for longer, I kept myself pretty warm! The most I needed was a long sleeved top with a short sleeved top over that. I greatly appreciated running socks (wear this all the time now), gloves, running hat and a neck warmer (which I can pull up over my ears and nose or mouth. For my birthday, bought a headtorch this year - so much fun running in the mornings when is dark and so peaceful!!

I think if my hands and neck are cosy, I feel comfortable. Running in the dark is way too much fun, I have a fantastic headtorch and it only cost twenty quid and it is rechargeable. Love all my running gear LOL (second childhood)!!

I have to have a warm head :) Maybe to keep what little brains I have warm... I love my gear too, I got my slightly warmer buffs out and have put them at the top of the pile in my drawer.. sad eh?

I never thought i would love the stuff so much, either ... I have been perusing the sales on some running gear sites, ready to stock up for next year! :)

Me too! My running gloves are ok but would like something better, might get a flipbelt instead of my running belt, maybe a new hat 😍
