Neither the heavy rain or the gales were going to stop me doing this run earlier today. I donned my high vis waterproof, baseball cap and off I trotted. Did a completely new route as I knew my park/trail path would be sodden and dark. I surprised myself how far I'd run and I actually felt like I was running, my feet seemed higher off the ground, I even had to tell myself to slow down as I may not make tbe 30 mins. I even ran up an inclined road which was early in the run luckily as not sure I would have managed it 10 or 15 mins later! The 'I'm a runner' feeling didn't last too long, I was soon back to my usual 'how much longer' phase so started counting Christmas trees as a distraction. It worked and I did it! It feels a bit surreal that there is just one run left till graduation - I don't think anyone who knows me will believe it as I can't myself!
