w3r1 - Sunny and windy

No this isn't a weather blog but shows why I took a lightweight jacket with me that only lasted until the end of run one and then I had to run with it tied around me. It's annoying. Has anyone invented a jacket that automatically rolls up into a belt around your waist?!! The wind was trying to suck my breathe away at one point.

I didn't cover as far as last week and I felt I cheated as I was trying to get the uphill bits into the walk sections. I will be honest with myself next time and do my usual route to see how I do.

W2r3 I did in a forest that said I was following a 5km course. It was a bit short BUT I did it in 42 minutes so I was chuffed with myself.

Totally off the subject I'm teaching cycling at school this term - over 30 children on the road, with other helpers and trainers. Either my runs will keep me sane or I'll be dragging myself out!

You can always bring hills into it when your stamina increases if that's what you feel like. I found it too exhausting having hills at the start of my run, so I have one at the end now instead, so it doesn't leave me with jelly legs for the next 3. Good luck with the kids


turn your jacket into a kite and let it pull you along :-) keep it going you will get there in your own time.

Great about teaching the kids to ride out on the road, brave, but great. Hope you stay sane :-)
