Janathon Day 14: Getting muddy

So, tomorrow is going to be GRIM, so I wanted to get my run out of the way early and, as Edward was working from home, I was able to go at a far more respectable time and in daylight, yay! It’s so nice to go out after breakfast and when you can run through the parks instead of pounding the streets in a relentless do or die fashion. I saw a few runners, women mainly, who I think might have dropped off their children for a day of learning and then taken the opportunity to run home (this is how it looked anyway). I ran through the local park and squelched my way through the mud, ducking around one really big puddle and climbing a muddy bank in an attempt not to get my new shoes dirty, oh how I will be ridiculed tomorrow if I try the same thing during the race! Even though January has been a particularly wet month, I seem to have avoided actually running in much rain but today’s run was definitely a wet one, but I didn’t mind, things felt good and I was glad to get my run done and dusted with enough time to recover for tomorrow. I do find myself having momentary panics though when I do a morning run, then wonder the next day if I ran at all.

I will be leaving these at home tomorrow. It’s going to be a hectic weekend: off to Aldershot first thing, then the in-laws are arriving for the weekend just as we get back (will I get to shower off the mud first?!) and, just after they leave, my brother is coming to stay. Phew!
