Bright sunshine must mean a lovely easy run........or does it?


Nipped out for a run in the bright sunshine earlier. My, it’s cold today, and that strong and so bitter (I’m in the Midlands). What with that and the mud due to last night’s very heavy rain. I had to remain mindful of this being another rehabilitation run and take the muddy, heavy ground and wind resistance into account.

So anyone on the programme getting out there in these conditions, if you think it’s tough today don’t worry, it is are doing great just getting out there!

Just about to head out, I'll put another layer on as I can see the trees in my garden (in North Yorkshire) blowing about- thanks for the heads up.

Haha. I’ve had a hot shower and cranked up the wood burner. I am just thawing out. I am nithered as we have it in these parts🏃🏾‍♀️⛄️🏃🏾‍♀️


Weren't going out in just a t shirt were you? Need at least 2 layers!😁

Was out yesterday just above freezing with the wind chill in Ron Hill leggings, compression top, long sleeve shirt and a jacket, and running cap, all breathable so comfy..😊

I had two layers Dave, should have had my base layer too........that sunshine mis-led me 😱

You are so right - thought it was just me as this is not my usual time to run but it’s chuffing freezing out there 😣


I was out today in snowy rain with dog today. The gritters are out!! Cold and windy 🤨🙄

Took me ages to finish my run Pops, because the physio says slowwwwwwww runs only. I’m routinely slow so I have to go even slower!

Great big bright moon here now though, 😃

Yup. Just been out there in the dark and cold too. 3 degrees and windy. Didn’t unzip anything today!

I took the dog for her little pootle up the road later and it was bitterly cold..hat weather!

I hope its better tomorrow as I do want to do my next run.
