Today was my worst day of the Janathon. I really didn’t want to go outside into the pouring rain. I was feeling tired. My legs were feeling tired. It got later and later and at about half 8 in the evening I thought it is now or never, so changed into some old running gear, put on my Garmin and headed out the door.
I didn’t really mind the rain once I got going as it cooled me down a bit – I normally get really hot when I run. There were some massive puddles out there so my feet were soaking wet before I had even reached the end of my road. Tonight was the first time that I saw another runner on my route. He was quite speedy and looked like a serious (and grumpy) runner as he didn’t smile or say hello or anything as he overtook me.
I only did just over a mile today but it felt really hard – probably the hardest one of the Janathon so far. I know that there will be good runs and bad runs so hopefully tomorrow will be one of the good ones.
Distance: 1.35 miles
Average Pace: 11:31
