|A day to stay inside|
If it had just been raining, I might have gone out. If it had just been windy, I still might have given it a go. If I had only been going to do 3 or 4 miles, I might have braved it. But rain and high winds together are a misery, especially on long runs. So I stayed inside where it was warm(ish), read my book, watched the Christmas episode of Miranda that we had recorded, and did a bit of tidying of my running gear drawers. (I now have two very full bags of outdated and unwanted running clothes to take to the charity shop, and I was pleased to have found my compression tights in amongst the dross. I wondered where they had disappeared to.)
My plan is to do the 8 miles tomorrow when the winds are supposed to be much less. That'll only put me one day out of synch with my training programme, which is meant to start tomorrow with a rest day. I figure a long run on Monday, shorter distances on Wednesday and Friday, and another long run on Sunday, and it'll be like I was on track the entire time.
Flexible and laid back, that's me!
