W6R1 Extra trainers !

A weekend off for a change yay. I'd been planning starting W6 as soon as I was up this morning, looking forward to a Saturday morning run! wonders will never cease.

Unfortunately having been struck by the annual February cold I was feeling a little below par. However having taken the dogs out first thing the weather was fine and dry, albeit a bit chilly. So I decided to have a nice hot Lemsip to help clear my head, and venture out armed with tissues secured in various places.

On the whole a good session, and I was thankful of the walk breaks purely to have a chance to sort myself out as my nose was also wearing trainers and running faster than me (sorry if that's too much info!). But like other people have said the legs took a bit longer to get going once Laura told me to run again but there aren't too many more of these coming up. Anyway I did it, and so glad I went first thing as now it's bitter cold and raining whilst I'm indoors wrapped in my blanket with a hot water bottle and a cuppa. Hopefully I can manage R2 on Monday but will see how the cold doing before committing x Have a fab weekend folks x

  • I recently purchased some winter commuter cycling gloves thinking that those have got to be warm, and I've used them for running so far. They also come with a bit of terry on the thumb for nose wiping.... I can hear you all going "Eeeeeeeew" from here.

  • Yes I use old cycling gloves...That bit of Terry towelling is perfect ..

  • Sounds like I need to get me a pair lol :D
