Half Marathon Training Week Week 7 Run 4

Today I ran 10 miles and it was. . . mostly good.

The run started off fine, but it started downpouring at about 4km.  I stopped and waited under a bridge for about 15 minutes.  If it had been a light rain, that would have been one thing, but it was really coming down!  Once it tapered, off I continued on.  I did debate with myself if I should just do half outside and half on the treadmill, when the sun came out.  So, I carried on.  (I enjoyed the last audiobook in the new Blake’s 7 series, Spoils of War, called Solus.  It was great!)

And the run was beautiful.

After I had run 8km/5mi, I headed back home.  I kept a relatively steady pace, avoided cyclists and puddles, and just enjoyed the run.

With about a mile and a half left, the skies darkened and it began to pour.  Huge raindrops and a strong wind made me feel like I was being pelleted, and I sprinted for cover (and got my fastest mile time of the day because of it!).  After about 10 minutes, it had eased off enough, and considering I was already soaked, I hurried home.  When I arrived home, the sun came out again (of course).

And because I forgot to unpause my Fitbit at a traffic light, here’s my Runkeeper for the day.

All in all, it was a good run.
