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!
