I’m sorry, but it is. I book a week off and it rains for 5 days of it then, just as I return to work, the sun shines all day with fantastic temperatures and I get all annoyed at my luck. Still, that’s all it is, and (ah, there goes my English teacher again – a comma followed by “and”…great!) it does at least prove i’m the luckiest man on the planet…all of it bad.
Still, I did elect to drive to work and run this evening, which is exactly what happened. In such heat, my hair really is getting a bit of a joke. I’ve almost agreed with myself that i’ll attempt to go for the longest i’ve ever managed without getting it cut, but with another 4 weeks to go, I don’t think doing it through the summer will prove the most sensible idea ever. We’ll see.
However, the run was odd. My legs couldn’t get used to running to start with and my first mile was an erratic affair, not assisted much by indecision as to route. I chose the one where I nearly got run over 6 times in the end, so I won’t be repeating it in a hurry, but it was a nice change, with two decent hills in 3 miles, so i’ll have to adapt the route out and back for my hill repeats, I think. Assuming I do them, of course. With my legs being as sore as they are, however, I might leave it a few weeks before I go for that particuler option.
It wasn’t a bad run, though, I feel better for it, and at least the half marathon campaign has got off to a good start.
