I rarely let the weather get in the way of my running but I also don’t tend to run before 8am so when I needed to combine my planned interval session with a trip into London to celebrate a friend’s birthday AND the wind was howling I knew it was going to be tough.
But as the song says, when the going gets tough, the tough get going! And there I was, heading out the door at ten past seven. On a Saturday no less!
That’s marathon motivation for you! Or is it nervousness-bordering-on-scaredness of being bitten by under-preparation? Either way, I covered a blustery 9km in a condensed pyramid session. Some of it wind-assisted. Some of it very much wind-hampered!
Now to throw some things together and head into London town for lunch at Borough Market and then an afternoon of wine tasting at Vinopolis. What marathon? 😉
