despite misgivings about feeling tired and the weather being cold and windy I had promised some fellow runners that I would do today's Park run so off I went. It was very cold and windy in the park by the seafront, but I was there so when the run started off I went. Last week in near perfect conditions I managed a BP by some 46 seconds but the weather was so awful today I thought I would just be glad to finish. How ever something strange happened. Once I started running I found my stride and just kept running, even when the wind was gusting in my face it felt good . I managed to stay fairly close to a runner that is normally 2 minutes quicker than me, for the first time I felt like a real runner. Finally my legs, brain and breathing all seemed to be working together When the results came in I was actually disappointed that I failed to get another PB but I only failed by 6 seconds so considering the conditions I am really pleased. At last I actually believe I may one day manage a 30 minute 5k and I am a runner
