My trainers are soaked through, and I wish I could say it's because I've been slogging it through dirt, soggy mud & quagmires on todays run. Alas, it isn't.
I did go for a run, but it was a bad day and only managed 4k (not continuous) but it's better than sat at home watching TV!
When I reached the halfway point of my run, I stopped for a breather. At this point I thought I'd check out the local park for a route I'd like to do in a month or two. The route as I plan it is for a 2k run on pavement, then into the local park through grass (no paths) for another 1k or so before I end up on a track which winds its way through a golf course (public path) before getting back onto the pavement and heading home.
So anyway, the park was absolutely sodden, water logged and a muddy mess! Lots of dog walkers in their wellies and me in my running shoes. I walked for about 5 minutes through the mess and then headed back to the pavement.
So anyway, I finished my run and when I got to my front door, I noticed my trainers were filthy! Rather than feel the wrath of MrsQwest as I trudge mud through the flat, I took my shoes off and before I entered and deposited them in the bathroom sink with every intention of cleaning them later. I promptly forgot about that intention.
A few hours later and it was time to bath our two boys. The eldest (3yrs) can reach the taps and quite often, to mimic mummy, he turns the sink tap on when she turns on the bath tap. As I'm sure you've already guessed, he turned the tap on and filled my trainers with water.
So now they're soaked through and I've no idea how to dry them properly. I very much doubt they'll be dry for Monday which is when I'll go running next and I don't want to run in damp shoes, especially in this weather. My feet will get cold and I'm not a happy bunny when my feet are cold.
So any tips would be a godsend!
