Week 7 completed in relatively tropical conditions

I was feeling a little tired and under the weather this morning and thought it was far too cold to go for a run. Why not leave it another day and go tomorrow instead I told myself. Maybe I would slip on a patch of ice or make myself feel worse by using up any energy I had left after my little bug? But then I made the mistake of opening up this site and saw a picture of an amazing woman who had just come back from a run in -29C!! Icicles on her eyelashes!! I checked the weather again in arctic Berkshire , 1C. On came the running kit and i was out the door. Can't say I loved every minute of it but was surprised that I was not tired - legs felt like they could go on forever. They seemed detached from my mind somehow...which always helps. So that is week 7 done. Thank you icicle eyelash lady :)
