Janathon Day Two, and yesterday`s floodwaters have yet to recede.
I pitched up at my usual haunt for a bog standard three miler. But found the road impassable, due to flooding and the canal tow path was under water too.
So I made a quick scoot around to find an alternative. And a nearby forest delivered the goods.
Between outlying road and in forest trail, I trotted out three miles in all.
Nothing supersonic about my speed, of course. And, anyway, I was more intent on staying upright than picking up the pace as there were lots of roots to trip over. (Yeah, excuses, excuses!)
And of course I took time to stop and stare…
Finished off the run on a nice patch of roadway so I punched out a little bit of interval training there, if only to experience the sensation of actually running, as opposed to just plodding along.
Ooohh, wind howling and rain beating against the window as I type! Is there no end to it? Might start a swimathon…
Three miles done.
Interval training started again.
New route discovered.
