I was in two minds about running this morning after a wild, wintry and windy night. As I lay in bed this morning listening to the wind gusts and knowing it would also be cold, I was sooo tempted to give it a miss. But as per usual, that nagging little voice started - if its really that awful outside do a cardio session in the gym. I contemplated this option and decided that it couldn't possibly be that bad outside (I'm not a great fan of cardio machines). So on went the layers - tights, bike pants, short sleeved running top, arm warmers, long sleeved running top, windbreaker, headband, cap and gloves. And so Michelin Woman waddled out the door for a 14km run!

The run itself wasn't that bad - once I got going. The first half of the run was into the wind so it wasn't particularly pleasant but I kept telling myself the run home would be a lot easier....and it was. I also kept telling myself that next week I will be running in a hot and humid climate.

Liza - I will think of you when we are in Siena!

5 sleeps to go!

Good on you for getting out there this morning, CJ. I heard those conditions, too, and would have given anything to be out there in the elements I love.

Thanks muchly for your very supportive comments on my blog. I really appreciated them. Being injured is the absolute pits as we all know. Your thoughts really do help a lot.

Sounds like it took a lot of discipline to get out today. Only 5 sleeps to go.. so exciting!

I thought of all you poor Canberrans when I saw the -1 on the weather chart this morning.
