On the half marathon training plan for today was a 60 minute run. But the rain was relentless all morning!
I’ve noticed this last week how much I avoid getting on with whatever exercise I have planned, pushing it back hour after hour. Sometimes into the late evening.
Last night I went to bed with the intention of running at midday. Due to the rain I eventually left the house at 2pm when it eased up slightly – which wasn’t exactly on time but could certainly have been worse!
I ran for 60 mins covering 9.22Km. It rained heavily and by the time I was finished I was dripping wet!
Running everyday invites a whole array of challenges. I’ve needed to accept that I won’t be getting personal bests but getting my trainers on everyday and running is enough. I am looking forward to completing this January challenge so I can begin to focus on improving my speed and hopefully I will start to find these long runs less labourious!
At the halfway point of this challenge I have run 58.95 Km in a total of 6 hours, 13 minites and 51 seconds.
I’m pretty happy with this!
