Still at it, still exhausted. Legs fine, ears not.
Over this last couple of weeks I've discovered something about myself. Nothing spiritual... I've discovered I have odd ears.
My left earphone falls out constantly, the right almost never. The thing is I'm constantly aware of the imminent earphone fall. I can feel it slowly slipping, my hand hovering ready to poke it back in. Then running with finger in ear, as if I didn't look daft enough already. And my thick glasses, lubricated with sweat, rain (and tears?) slowly slide down my sodden nose with every slap of my clown-like feet. I'm forever pushing my glasses up my nose and fiddling with my ears as I pound along. It really is very distracting. Impossible to focus.
A single earphone and glasses free is the answer. The deformed free ear, all the better to hear oncoming vehicles and the wolf whistles. The semi blindness? Not so good. "Excuse me sir" As I no doubt bounce a telegraph pole.
Maybe a roll of sellotape could solve both problems in one round the head sticky go. Put a bow on it. A makeshift c25k fascinator. No doubt there are running gadgets / hi-tech knicker elastic available from specialist running shops that do this already. Must investigate.
Found an ICE (in case of emergency?) tag inside my jacket pocket. Where did that come from? Really necessary? 'If lost please return to...' more like?
Rambling, apologies. Bring on Run 3.
