The problem ( I discovered as I opened the door) with scheduling a run in the evening and having only a very small time window in which to complete it is that if it is pouring with rain you can't postpone until later in the day.It crossed my mind to cancel the run until tomorrow but on realising how disappointed I 'd be not to complete Wk 1 'on time' I grabbed my anorak and set off. As a newbie with no ' proper running gear' anorak and trackie bottoms is not my best look however I took consolation in the fact that with my hood on I might go unrecognized! By the end of the 'warm up' I was wind blown,wet and seriously questioning my sanity however by the end of my third minute of running I realised I was already as wet as I could possibly get and therefore I may as well enjoy the rest. And so I did ,pressing on through the puddles, slow and steady as I've learnt, and eventually as I approached the cool down the rain petered out and the fresh scent of spring filled my nostrils ( how does the air do that after a downpour?) anyway this was so unexpected and lovely that as I walked home I reflected that this particular run had brought a reward all of it's own.
