It was raining so I put Russell (my waterproof jacket) on and we started off.

The thing about Russell is he’s hot and annoying so I ended up taking it off whilst running and knotting the arms around my waist like a sort of mid drift cape..

Today’s run consisted of “Why do my legs hurt, Why am I finding it harder”, blah blah moan grump thoughts.. however, when I finished I looked at my strava and was shocked to find I’d pushed myself and run a little further and faster than previous.

I didn’t notice mainly because of the wind pelting huge drops of rain into my face and Russell acting like a sail in the wrong way.

I am pleased with it myself, even if it is at the expense of my own embarrassment because I grumbled so much 😂

Can I ask why you call it Russell?

If moaning and groaning gets you through, carry on, I say 😂

Some days are easier than others, but well done for getting it done, despite Russell's best efforts 😂 🤣

I was discussing my moaning with my friend at work and she said she might take up running just so I can moan out loud because I do it in a funny way apparently... I think she just wants to steal Russell from me 😂

Haha @ Russell. You might have started a trend here with us naming our clothes.

🤔

Trainers - Gonzales (as in Speedy) lol

Great read Sazzles! Although I had to do a double take as I thought you meant Jack Russell at first 😂😂Any way massive well done!

Haha! Leave Russell behind next time! Short sleeves for me at the moment! Well done, you probably found it tough because you were going a bit faster without realising it!
