Cracking stupid oc lock run today. An explosion of colours as the sun rose over hills.
I love these kind of stupid o clock mornings.
Lovely sunrise agin, but I also ran through 5 mins of a rain shower. It didn't look as if it was raining anywhere else...
Now that is unusual.
Or i was still half asleep.
It's been raining most the night so when I got up at 03:45 imagine my joy to find out it had stopped, so onwards with my half hour prep and warm up........ stepped out the door and guess what ......started pouring down again.
I don't mind getting wet when I am running, but to start off wet isn't very motivating, so plan B is coming into action as I will be travelling back from work this evening I will be going through Cannock Chase, a perfect opportunity to up to 8 miles of trail running and break in my shiny new Inov8 Talons.
Unless of course it's still raining !!!!
Despite all my efforts, been unable to run for 3 days in a row now!!!
I'm just so shattered that I change my alarm clock without remembering to do it. And this morning I was a little bit more awake and it was pouring it down so again fell back asleep.
I feel so sluggish. So unfit, I hate it!!! I'm going to have to go tonight. Won't be as enjoyable but better than nothing.
Don't be too disheartened TurboElli. I seem to hit a rhythm that every few weeks, the knack of getting out early totally deserts me. Sometimes, I don't even manage to get out after work. The main thing is to think it's just one of those weeks & you'll soon be out & about before the Milkmen. Promise
THANK YOU GUYS!!! Makes me feel tiny bit better!
5.30 yesterday and 6.00am today
I have been running early mornings now for the last two years and its great with the quiet roads and being practically on my own for most of my runs. Well in the last couple of weeks its all changed there seems to be more and more early morning runners around.
Who bloody told them eh, spoiling my peaceful runs now I have to nod and say morning every half mile.
was it you guys spreading the word about how fantastic early runs are, telling people they would feel good all day.
I expect i'll be back on my own in the winter I'll miss them then
I enjoy teh soltitude of my mornng runs, I always have !
This morning I passed a field which had 2 horses galloping about at some speed in it. Their hooves sounded really loud off the solid dirt track that runs through it
Birkmyre, if this was a facebook I'd click "Like"
It's fantastic isn't it!
Well I managed to run a tempo session of 5 miles plus 2 mile warm up/down yesterday on the 'Chase' at around 17:00 yesterday, and up at the usually time of 03:45........out the door at 04:30 after warm ups with a nice leisurely 6.5 mile easy paced run.
Started off in the dark and got back 55 mins later and it was light.
P.S. Bit like my avatar.........note to myself, must get that sorted.
