Cold weather be gone

Like most people I would guess I have had enough of this cold spell. Ever time I run my nose pours constantly (mind you can do this in the warm) so now it’s sore, I am fed up with the after run headache because the cold air has wormed it’s way well and truly in to my sinus’s I am also tired of not being able to get warm after a run despite a hot shower, last night I went to bed fully clothed (romance well and truly dead here if I am cold!) as I just could not warm up. Sunshine soon please or at least a little warmth.
Last nights Women On The Run group was hard or at least I found it so, I think in part due to eating dinner before going. After a slight warm up we had to get in pairs and one go clockwise and one anti-clockwise around a small loop and see who got back first. It was fun and really made you work hard, fortunately my partner and I were evenly matched and I did not embarrass myself. Energy levels not great and I was soon well and truly knackered.
Whilst madam was doing her second endurance session at Harriers tonight, I did some intervals in the car park not very scenic but I did discover a nice bike path that will be great to run on when its lighter (and warmer) in the evenings, can’t wait!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    So agree am completely sick of the cold, sick of not being able to warm up, of getting home colder rather than warmer than I started. Bring in the sunshine…

    The intervals obviously did the trick given your pb on Saturday.
