One of the things I looked forward to in the new house was going running. We're only a short distance from the seafront, which is a lovely flat route. But it's not working out quite as well as I planned.
The problem is the wind. One direction you can run happily, but than coming back is hard work. Rain I don't mind, cold I don't mind, but I hate running into the wind – which means I've been slacking off rather a lot in the last month. I've occasionally gone a few days without putting on my running shoes.
Thing is, most of the time the wind is not as bad as I expect (and certainly less testing than the Morecambe run in August). I'm not sure how best to get my motivation going again. I think what I'll do next week is go out every day, even if it's only for 5K, and simply get over it. I can work on my distance again when my motivation is fixed.If you want to follow what I'm up to, sign up to my mailing list
