#janathon Day 4

Janathon Day 4

I read someone’s blog yesterday (can’t remember who they were) that mentioned a lot of blogs seemed like a weather report, so for the record, I will not be mentioning the massive ****ing ridiculous hooligan of a wind that was raging AGAIN for tonight’s run.

Also, I know it’s only day 4 but work seems to be getting in the way of janathon, what with working late at school and the fact I should actually be marking rather than sitting and writing this, I dread to think what’s going to happen by the time we get to day 31. Ok, well onto today’s run….

The plan was a couple of laps of the estate where I live. This includes running on the path for a bit before passing Tesco…

…and running on a muddy track down the side of a field, over a stream and eventually getting back on the path. Also, to kill two birds with one stone, I took the dog for his evening walk/run. Simple you would think. In reality, not quite so simple:

  • The track was incredibly muddy (think cartoon character running) and incredibly dark.
  • Nearly ran into a mysterious cyclist without lights.
  • When negotiating a particularly tricky part of the run (muddy under foot and trying to avoid falling into the stream) I promptly ran through a REALLY deep puddle.
  • Needless to say, on the second lap I did exactly the same thing!

But on a more positive note…..day 4 done!

  1. Pesky cyclists with no lights – I had one tonight who had the cheek to say “sorry didn’t see you there” and I couldn’t have been wearing more hi viz! Great read
