Yesterday, for the first time in 21 runs I actually got out in daylight.
My usual route is on back lanes with no pavements or streetlights. Yesterday I did the same route but actually managed to dodge the showers (well nearly)... and get out in daylight - what a revelation - so much easier when you can see where you're going and there's actually something to look at apart from a head torch view of the tarmac ahead.
Distance went up, average pace improved. Fortunately no snow where I am so apart from a slight soaking the conditions were ideal. Week 8 beckons - and next friday is still looking good for graduation!!!!
