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.
