Well, I eventually managed to get out and do my 2nd run of week 8, but it really was touch and go as to whether I was going to do it. I really wasn't in the mood for it after having a long night shift at work last night. I started at 10:30pm and didn't get home until 10am today! I immediately went to bed when I arrived home and got up around 4pm with it already getting dark and it was raining!
I got up and put my running gear on then had some breakfast. I then watched a bit of tv and pondered on going out for the run in the rain for the first time. I have two rest days between runs now so I don't really want to be taking more than that between runs. So eventually, with a heavy heart I peeled myself off the couch and ventured outside...
Luckily, the rain had stopped! But it was dark by now and obviously very wet everywhere with puddles galore, and what looked like very slippy leaves covering most of my route. So I thought I was in for right treat!
Just after Laura announced I was half way through, my right foot hit the edge of a small hole and my foot suddenly jarred and it hurt. I thought I had twisted my ankle but I didn't stop and in fact I carried on through the pain. But to be fair the pain wasn't too bad. It's more like when you touch a bruise. That sort of 'duller'pain. So I think I might have got away without any kind of injury.
As you can see from my log of this run, I managed 3.46km in my 28 minutes (ignore the 18 seconds...I had stopped running but couldn't unlock the app to stop the timer! lol)
