Initially I had planned for tonight’s run to be an easy 1-2 miles, my special additional run this week for Janathon. However last night I was asked if I could help lead the running club’s Couch 2 5K programme on Thursday night. This will be week 1 of the programme and there have been over 40 expressions of interest so extra jog leaders have been called in. As that will be mostly a walked session I thought I should make tonight’s run at least 3 miles.
Although today has been wet and windy all day it had eased off by the time I left for my run at 5 pm, so I decided I should really do 4 miles.
“Ha ha ha ha.” Said the weather before dumping so much water on me that I had trouble seeing where I was going. Add to the torrential rain, gusts of wind that had me running on the spot (and admittedly shoving me up the hill from behind on one occasion) that it was actually rather comical.
Today’s run: 4 miles (with wind resistance)
Running: 22.2 miles
