A dark, wet, windy morning.......

It was an early start this morning to get the run in for today - up at 5.40am, have a fortifying black coffee and then out the door for a fairly short session. The session this morning was to run a 10min warm up, then 6 x 2min efforts with 1min rest interval between each one. Sounded good but I didn't account for the heavy shower of rain that began about 5min after I started and didn't finish until I finished, about 30min later! However I figured I was out there so I may as well keep going - what's a little bit of rain anyway. Then the wind picked up - resistance training! Ok, so I was employing positive thinking tactics but it worked for me. I splashed through puddles, getting absolutely soaked and if anyone was up and about at that hour and saw a crazy woman running in the pouring rain - yep, it was me!

My diet today was a shocker - lots of fantales throughout the day, a muffin for lunch, and too many coffees. Tomorrow is another day.......

Welcome to blogland CJ! As one other Canberra blogger found out on Saturday, running in the rain is fun. You are helping to break the drought! Go Team 'H'!

Rain.. what's that again! I hate running in the rain myself so I admire you for sticking it out. Can you send some rain up to Sydney please!

Welcome to Team H by the way...
