Home from home
What a miserable day of weather today- definitely a reminder of winter in England! It was a day for staying inside, crashing on the sofa and eating the contents of the fridge, so I did- it's amazing how a trip to Blockbuster can keep a 3 and 6 year old happy for hours at a time (yes it was a "bad parent" day)
I got my 16 mile run in early. It was miserable but luckily Jordan and Tom joined me to help pass the time and ignore the rain. As I drove home at 8.30 the roads were pretty deserted except for the cars of the few people who didn't consider it too wet to go to church and the 4 or 5 lone runners I came across. Getting it done, regardless of the weather, good stuff.
The 16 enabled me to surpass my previous weekly record mileage high as I head into next week's 'down time'. I won't know what to do with myself tomorrow and the next morning as my next run won't be until after work on Tuesday. Hopefully it will have stopped raining by then
