Janathon day 30.
This is a first for me, thanks to the wonders of modern wi-fi and free public access networks I am able to blog today from the ferry while we sail from Cowes to Southampton. It’s a usual busy Sunday afternoon ferry, very noisy with lots of little kids running up and down (grrr) and intrusive food smells; a mixture of chips, onions and oranges (yuck).
This morning’s ‘early’ run was at 10am. I really didn’t want to get out of my lovely warm bed. Might have been something to do with yesterday’s long run but more likely due to Saturday night’s bottle of red wine. On my husbands third attempt to get me to get up I stumbled forth mainly because he explained that it was a gorgeous morning and he would come with me on my run (by bike). I felt very tired and heavy because I hadn’t eaten, my legs were aching and it was cold. However the sun was shining and I was grateful I’d thought to wear my sunglasses. It was my regular Isle of Wight loop, maybe not ideal as a recovery run because of the hills. I thought it was a slow run but 37 minutes is an average time for this route so I might be getting a bit quicker?
Maybe not that quick, because himself complained that he was freezing cycling soooo slowly and as I shed gloves and hat he promptly added them to his layers. He cut a fine sight on his ancient rusty racer (teenage prize possession) 3 layers of fleeces, my hat and gardening gloves. Apparently you have to look the part to cycle so slowly. If spotted by overtaking ‘proper cyclists’ I’m told he would appear a right idiot dressed like he was on the Tour de France!
