As this is the fourth time I have taken part in this daily running challenge, you might think I had the organisation down to a fine art. It’s definitely true that I spend a disproportionate amount of time thinking about when and where to run, and how to fit this round normal life, but it appears that there is still room for improvement in the execution.
Today I checked the weather forecast and seeing that a clear day was on the cards, opted to run at lunchtime. Lunchtime work running is still one of the hardest for me to pull off, as the palaver of getting changed , getting out and then rejoining office life red and sweaty can often convince me it’s not worth the effort.
But today I was glad I had left myself no alternative than to run at lunchtime as when I stepped out the sky was winter blue, and the air was a nicely chilly 4 degrees C, just my kind of temperature.
The only slight mishap was a missing sock – somehow in the morning rush to pack running kit I had only picked up one of the pair. However it turns out I can run 3 miles perfectly well with unbalanced footwear, especially when the sun is shining.
Day 2 Miles 3.26 Running total 6.51
