There are consequences in delaying a run for several hours after it is first planned.
Today I had no excuses as the snow was wet and melting and the pavements looked clear but I cleaned the oven and hoovered before finally making it out the door (yes I had friends coming over this evening!)
I started with a mile walk, with my son going to meet a friend. A very useful cold weather warm up before setting off to Hyde Park. Most of the pavements were snow free and the main paths had been gritted so it was easy running.
When I stopped after a couple of miles to take a picture of the snowy park my iPhone told me memory full. My garmin then added to my frustration by bleeping battery low. I’d left it on the windowsill for too long all ready to go. This made me realise that it was also a long time since breakfast and my batteries were low too so decided call it a day and go home. I got the bleep for 3 miles and a final low battery warning around the point of my run which I know is a mile from home so when my garmin died shortly afterwards I knew how much to add-on.
Janathon day 19. 1 mile walk, 3.92 miles running.
