This was supposed to be posted on Friday.
This is the first time i have been for a run in months where i wore 2 layers on top as it was or it seemed a bit nippy outside. I’m rubbish in the cold. I used to be in the Army and people at work often take the piss out of me when i moan about the cold. They remind me i used to be a Soldier and i remind them that the i must of missed the lesson where they tell you how not to feel the cold.
5 miler completed this afternoon.
And this after the real afternoon that is today. I went for another 5 miler back in those woods i got sort of lost in last time but this time i didn’t get lost for obvious reasons.
Drank to much at the weekend again.
with one of the worst colds ever recorded in the history of the Human Race. That is to say i am a man who has a bit of the sniffles. A new year resolution was to try to keep this blog up to date which means i run more and find the motivation to do so. So because i can’t run at the moment i thought i would post something.
No Way! Ive done this before and it just makes it worse. I know some people say it does you good but advice from every medical resource i can find says don’t do it as well. So I’ve had a bit of a cold early on this week which is why i haven’t run until today. I went for a 4 miler while i was at work (do i run any other time?) and it was crap. All i have done for the last few days is stuff my face with crap food and man did i feel it when i was running.
At work i went for a quick 3.5 mile run at the second attempt. I say second because the first time i walked outside it was cold and raining and i wimped out and went back indoors for half an hour. It calmed down and off i went. This area is very hilly and the first mile or so is just a killer. A dog came running after me as i passed a farm and it had a muzzle on which was good news this did not stop me from running faster for a brief period of time.
I know i keep banging on about the hills i run in at work but have i told you about the hills i run in at work? I went for a 4 miler this afternoon in driving cold rain and a good wind. It was the type of weather that catches your breath in the first 20 meters or so. I took my camera with me this time but after 4 pictures the battery died on me. Twat! Yes, i did use the timer as i was on my own and was very self conscious in case any Cows or Sheep were looking at me prancing around in the rain. Did i mention those bloody hills?
