I decided to go out today when there was a break in the rain. However when I got out of my car at the usual place..open fields and sea I hadn't realised how strong the wind was and I was going to be running against it for the first half of the run before I could turn and head back. I almost decided not to bother but I thought I'd give it a go and see how far I could get and if not, I'd put it down as a practice run . It was hard work, I got ear ache in my right ear but plodded along. I reached 5 minutes and thought yep I'll keep going....12 and a half minutes came and I thought still keep going. So eventually I reached the point of half way and turned back so now I had the wind behind me which was tons better!
Now it was my left ear taking the brunt of the wind then it started raining quite heavy but I can say it wasn't actually too unpleasant. The ear ache was worse but I put the hood of my long sleeve top up and it helped loads.
Remembered my pedometer today which logged at 3.09...I think it was the wind helping me along on the way back
I need to start doing the strengthening and flex exercises as tonight my back is aching along with stiff legs.
