The North Wind doth Blow and Jacks mum will run slow(ish)


Ever get the feeling that things are not going to go to plan……………..

Knew it was going to be one of those days when the rear wiper wouldn’t work on my car this morning, just what you need in torrential rain while doing the school run. Then my son lasted a whole 25 minutes at school before trapping his finger in the door and had to go to A & E (nothing broken thankfully, just a lovely big bandage on his middle finger). So I suppose it was a bit too much to expect my hill session to go as expected.

The weatherman said it was going to get better, yeah right!!! Go on the treadmill Hubby said but I hate the treadmill more than the howling wind. So I set off, the hail started, yipee. Made it to my usual hill, which way was the wind blowing………yep, down the hill I wanted to run up. ‘ Sod it’ I thought and opted for some sprints home. Run done, not the run I wanted but still…………

Day 3 done.

    Well done Dawn. I must say, the worst thing I can imagine is having to face up-hill into the wind on a rainy day so you did the right thing (in my opinion). Don’t resort to the “dreadmill”, I don’t think that would count anyway (lol). Hope Jack recovers soon, sounds really painful!
