Two for the price of one, it's a BOGOFF run blog.
Monday's 5k was suited to shorts, the weather still definitely on the mild side for January, change is forecasted but today out there is just right for running, it was blowy running across the aqueduct but deserted and not a visitor in sight 🤷, in fact the only other living creature I saw was the 🐑 pictured who wasn't at all camera shy and just wanted to eat.
Fast forward to Wednesday ohhh the gremlins tried and yessssss 💪 they failed, on dipping a toe outside, yep it's a man-tights day (all dress codes adhered to and nobody scared during the run 🤣). The weather hmmm 🤔rain, hail and sleet..... Yummy 😍.
I'd chosen my brooks cascadia shoes as the towpath does get really muddy and wet I'm sections, I don't do round, it's easier to plough on through, water goes in and out just as easily 👍.
I even left my gloves on up until about 4k as the wind although weak was cutting with its chillyness.
Enough for today and January's feeling good already 15k run, and that's 15k more than December so ✅ winning.
So come on let's run, ignore that weather, you will dry! You will warm up, just don't think you have to wear everything you've got... Practise makes perfect in layering 🤓
Stay safe n happy running family lets run into 2022
