Anticipating a drop in temperature I had laid out a pair of leggings and a lightweightfleece before I went for an early night.
This morning I was up before the alarm went off. There was a light covering of frost on the cars but no ground frost and the air was crystal clear.
I didn't see anyone until I crossed the hump back canal bridge out of the village onto the main road. Another runner approached me and as we came closer she put her head down to avoid any eye contact and we did not exchange any greeting or acknowledgement.
I pressed on and completed my run in neither my best or worse time. I now feel ready to face the day. I am really enjoying my running.
