No rain just howling gales!

As the alarm went off at 5 o’clock I sprang out of bed with my customary zeal and trotted gazelle-like round my running route waving gaily at passers by and whistling along to the birdsong.

Alright, so maybe I exaggerate slightly, it would be closer to the truth to say that I relcuctantly stumbled out of bed, found some clean running kit and headed out of the door into the teeth of a howling gale. On my sort-of-square route I had the wind at my side for half of it, against me for a quarter and happily behind me for the other quarter though I swear it felt like it was against me for much more than that!

If I can get up in time I’m planning on heading off to the wilds of Norfolk to take in a parkrun tomorrow morning. Juneathon total now up to 80k.


About JovialGnome

Heavily into running 20 years ago with a PB of 1.42.00 in the Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 1985 and 3.48.49 in the Telford Marathon in 1986 - then for some reason I just stopped and have done little or no physical exercise between then and 2 or 3 years ago! I've now moved to Boston in Lincolnshire where I really enjoy looking after my 13 Ryeland ewes and 1 ram and am rejoicing in the distinct lack of hills! I suspect that sub 4 hour marathons are gone forever but hey, I'm having a great time trying!

    I seriously don’t know how you and Shaz do it. I was awake at 5am, but wasn’t coming out from under the duvet for love nor money.

  2. That first line made me tired just reading it. Thanks to Queenie’s celebrations, I’ve been spared any early runs, though I have a feeling that will change next week. I must remember to nod hello on twitter if I do drag my carcass out at that time…
