10k tonight, nice conditions. Around 4 degrees celsius and a little bit of wind and rain. Had to take my gloves off after a mile, actually, which was a pleasant change from my hands going numb from the cold yesterday.
Not feeling too hot today, but ran 2 miles on the track I first started on last month. Even though I wasn't feeling great it was satisfying that the run was so easy, because I'd had to push myself before.
Happy to have completed a tough 3k around the country park which made quick work of me before, and in much worse conditions this time.
Took a 5k detour home after that, scared an old man and his dog on the way, was very funny because the dog comically recoiled when we almost collided on a corner, and I heard the old man mutter, "F*cking hell..." as I passed.
I went on my first run in a long time last month wearing lycra shorts, regular sports shorts over them, a t-shirt, a jumper and a hat. I very quickly fell down a hill and was covered in mud. I was absolutely freezing as a result, and I got a lot of very odd looks during my (short) run from fellow runners.
I can't really say I pay much attention to what other people are wearing when they are running, to be honest; however, I have found that people who aren't out running often seem to find people who are out running amusing, regardless of what they're wearing.
I've stopped drinking alcohol completely, haven't drunk a drop in months. Haven't smoked a ciggarette since I was 11, and I've even been trying to cut down on junk food.
I've never been a big drinker, to be honest, so it's not been hard to cut that out. Junk food has been more difficult, and I must confess that I ordered in a kebab a few days ago; although, it was my first for quite a while.
Earlier this year I ate take-away food 5 days in a row (mum wasn't in to cook, obviously), went to a gym and was violently sick after 10 minutes of skipping.
