Well here it is at last, the final week of my Couch-to-5k challenge. The weather is doing its level best to thwart me by dumping snow and ice in my path. I will not be stopped! Well, that’s not strictly true… I may be stopped if a blizzard appears. Determined I may be, but daft I most certainly am not!
That said, a blizzard does not look likely this afternoon, and most of the weekend snow has melted, or been blown into the next county! The lunchtime dog walk was a good test of the expected conditions for my run. Blooming freezing easterly winds! Looks like I will need to layer up from head to foot.
Actually, I can’t wait to go out. I have new kit to test out. A bright pink, wind-proof running jacket complete with rear blinking red LED, and long, charcoal, thermal running tights. The combination will turn me into a Liquorice Allsort sweet!
