First long run in a while!

A wet and soggy long run this morning but was brilliant nonetheless! I love running in the rain, it's such a great feeling! Ended up with a blister on one of my toes though, ouch (remind me to wear the right socks next time...)! Oh and check out my new long run playlist on Spotify! open.spotify.com/playlist/7... ๐Ÿ˜€

Well done RC. Wonder if you have as much rain as we have today! Wet socks are blister magnets for sure, hope it heals quickly.

5h 52m ? that sure is a looooong run!

A running friend once told me when we were running in heavy rain it's fine we are not made of sugar!! Found plenty of rain also today. My playlist has been building for years, open.spotify.com/playlist/6... I think an edit may be required at some point๐Ÿ˜‚

That's such a good point, we are not made out of sugar hahaha! Went for a bike ride this morning and that was wet too! I much prefer running in the rain than cycling in the rain! :-)

I ran before tea. Very wet ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆMy phone was as slippery as a bar of soap ๐Ÿ˜€.

I got very wet. I stopped at the pedestrian crossing as my husband drove up. He was gesticulating through the window that he was going shopping and what did I want. Using hand signals I told him. Multi tasking ๐Ÿ˜

Do a search On here for peanut power bars. If that fails Iโ€™ll post it again. Theyโ€™re very delicious ๐Ÿ‘

I've found this one for power flapjacks that was posted on here somewhere, is this the one? rockrun.com/blogs/how-to-gu...

Yeah I think thatโ€™s the one. I donโ€™t use pine nuts though Almonds for sure. I like those gorgeous dried cherries in mine I use set honey too. Never overcook them of theyโ€™ll break your teeth. ๐Ÿ˜
