08 May 2013 – Metal Storm

Some time ago, I wrote about how odd it was that I willingly went outside with the intent of running (well, walking with a bit of running thrown in). Today it went to a whole new level…

As I lay in my warm, cosy bed, the bedside clock showing 2:52am, I could hear the rain lashing down on the metal roof. I could see glimpes of the street lights as the vertical blinds swayed with the gusts if wind that were hitting the front of the house.

So it was a little odd that all I wanted to do was get up, put on running gear and head outside!

Fortunately the wind and rain eased off by the time I headed outside – it was more like running in heavy drizzle rather than running in a storm. It brought back memories of running the school cross-country course in Winter – only this time I was enjoying it? Holy crap…

Where will this madness end? 🙂

(oops, just realised this morning’s run was supposed to be 6.5km – so it must have been a brain fart that made me plot a route of 5km…)
