I laid in bed last night listening to the rain on the roof, thinking would this morning be my first rainy run? Would I bail out and play on the treadmill? Would I bail out totally and stay in bed?
Well, the morning dawned (even if I wasn't awake for it) bright and clear. The alarm went off, I turned it off. Hubby roused me (I won't say woke, coz I wasn't totally under, but wouldn't have known about it if he hadn't) with a goodbye kiss. I finally dragged myself out of bed, put my running kit on, ate a chocolate bar (oops), glugged some water and left.
I'd also thought about routes last night, but had forgotten all this and set off on the route I was very disappointed in last week as it fell short of the 5k mark (4.94k). It's an out and back route, a very narrow loop, and it was only on the way back that I was reminded that it had rained last night, a massive puddle causing me to go round it rather than through it. This was followed by a short off road bit which was totally waterlogged, I must have slept through a lot of rain! Shoes now need to do some serious drying.
Well I came back a slightly different way and ran up and down the hilly bit all the way to our side gate. I'm impressed, I usually walk the last bit as it's up, down, up!
Total distance: 5.48k
