Congrats on your run Kate. I have just had a look at the WRN but there isn't a group anywhere near me unfortunately. I have got a labrador who will happily run alongside me for a few miles so I don't mind running by myself.
Anyway I'm going to bite the bullet and go out tonight (when it is dark) I somehow can't manage to get up early at the moment - something to do with it being the summer holidays I think. I'll report back tomorrow.
Jon Boy I'm sure you're right about it being a mental battle. I can't run in my lunch hour though because I teach so usually have stuff to prep for the afternoon. Might try to get home early (or do a few laps of the school field before I go home)
