A cold morning greeted me when I crawled out from the duvet and peeked outside. Experience from last week taught me that I shouldn’t run on the hilly country lanes in those conditions unless I wanted be terrified for the whole run. As I didn’t want to run at lunch time I opted for a cross-country route, where the grass would be crunchy and the mud solid. Running on crunchy grass is almost as fun as walking and kicking through autumnal leaves. Amazingly and unusually I had made a smart move. It was a lovely 5 miles. Cold, but lovely. I noticed that the rabbits I usually chase in one particular field where not about, obviously opting to stay in the warm under their bunny duvets.

As I stripped off to get into a warm shower I noticed that the only part of my kit that I had sweated on was my sports bra. Why is it even in the coldest conditions my mammary glands create heat? So much heat I could almost wring the bra out! Is it the friction (bounce)? No idea but I am thinking about getting them hooked up to the national grid. Not wanting to leave you with that image, I will instead leave you with these photos taken this morning. Hope it helps!

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!

    Haha! Maybe it is the squishing that makes the sweatiness worse? Condensation perhaps? 🙂

    Crunchy grass is fabulous. Makes me feel about ten whenever I encounter it.

    Another vote for crunchy grass. Up there with (dry) autumn leaves and damp sand as top sensual running experience.
