Sunday run: Clockwise, by @steevc
11.202 km
61 minutes
Jan. 12, 2020

It looks like I missed some rain this morning, but it was bright and clear as I set out after a bit of a lie-in. I need at least one of those each week. There were lots of puddles out there. For a change I decided to do the loop in the opposite direction to normal. I find I notice different things when I do that as well as discovering different uphill stretches.

It was a bit windy in places, but not too cold. I did a couple of extensions to get it over 10km. I have already done 60km this year, which is more that I was doing a year ago. My body is not complaining too much, but it will have to adjust. The pace was fairly variable with some quicker kilometres when going downhill. As usual it took me a while to really get going.

I need to think about what events I am going to enter. I want to do the Greenway Challenge half in May, but fancy doing other half marathons.

Not much wildlife about apart from a squirrel on a fence near home. I listened to the Bad Voltage and Guardian Science Weekly podcasts.

Have a great week!

I listened to the Bad Voltage and Guardian Science Weekly podcasts.

I often wonder how people switch off to the world and run. Those earpod things fall out of my ears whatever I do.

If I could forget the torment running puts on my body, I could then lose some of this baggage.

I use some cheap earphones. I am less keen on the ones that push into the ear canal as I want to hear what is going on around me. Mine stay in okay. I had some wireless ones that pushed in, but I couldn't use them for running. Sometimes I lose track of the podcasts when my mind wanders to other things. I'm still conscious of the effort of running, but having something to listen to helps pass the time.

Congrats on the run! Nice job! We hunkered down this weekend as we were under an ice storm warning. I spent the majority of the weekend worrying about my power going out and having to bail my sump by hand again. :P

Hope it doesn't get too bad for you. I'm quite happy to have undramatic weather.
