Okay all you annoying keeners, here's the thing - I hate running when it's windy (don't mind rain) so will you please stop posting about how you're all pushing on through and feeling great! One more post like that and I'll be forced to get off the couch and join you. ๐Ÿ˜ 

Now you know why I have a grumpy biscuit avatar. ๐Ÿ˜

๐ŸŽถ If you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain...... ๐ŸŽถ

You know you want to get out there ๐Ÿ˜„

It's quite calm at the moment at my end of the M8. Not that it matters for me today as I'm out of sync this week after returning from a slight niggle at the tail end of last, so I'm Tue/Thu this week instead of my usual Mon/Wed/Fri.

I seem to have a bit of ache on the inside of my knee just now. Bought one of those knee support bandages seems to help. Hopefully won't come to anything, if it does I will take a few days or a week off๐Ÿ˜Š

All the better for doing it. I wish I could bottle that feeling.

I will help "virtually" to push you along, they say the windiest part of the day will be between 2pm and 5pm.

This morning just after 9 I reran, run 3 of week 6, I love Laura saying at the end of the run that "you are now OFFICIALLY a RUNNER" ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿพ at that time it wasn't too windy.

I agree - I am on the east coast but the strong winds are no fun - a bit of rain can be fun though!

I'm just being a whimp really. Although I live on the Bristol channel and it can get a bit drafty.

Ok, done it. No PBs or anything fancy but, as I said myself, it just has to happen. 7k and christened my Christmas present running jacket, so all good. Thanks for the encouragement ๐Ÿ‘

I hate the wind too!! Rather have rain snow or even the dreaded ice! Glad you managed to brave it!! I try not too hard to think about it before getting out there & then itโ€™s too late to worry ๐Ÿคฃ

Top tip- if you run with the wind behind you, it means you dont have to work as hard :)

Thanks. I like to run a circuit from my house, does that mean I can stop in the pub half way round until the wind changes? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Haha! I find going out towards the wind and letting the wind push me home is much more helpful!

Hey Speedy

Itโ€™s the smell of the chips from the pub that does me, when itโ€™s windy I can smell them further away๐Ÿ˜ญ
