It never seems to get any easier, you would think that as I ran a half marathon in October and been running at least twice a week approx 5/6 miles each time that running would be easier!! but no, I went out yesterday afternoon and after 8.57 miles at an average pace of 10.02 mins/mile it was hard! as ever!! I admit it did rain really hard after the first couple of miles and I battled round lanes that I had to edge round very large floods! and then to finish off 2 miles into the wind and uphill.
I just wonder sometimes why it never seems to get easier, and no I am no quicker either?
Anyway that is the first run of the new year, given I got very wet and its pouring down this morning and gale force winds I was pleased I got out.
Not sure if it will clear sufficiently to get out for a short [25 mile] cycle ride today ?
