Non race 5k run

Start 17.55
Had planned to cycle to Rottemeer for the 5k there but the forecasted rain made me not fancy the 15k cycle there  (and then the same back afterwards).  So set out for a short local circuit where I did a 5k in 29.17, which, without anyone to race against, and a fairly strong headwind for a good bit of the way, I was quite pleased with.  The rain is indeed pelting down now, so think I made the right decision.

Short and wet

Start 5.24

Had a longer run planned but that was when the forecast had been for a few dry hours.  When the rain started after 2k I took the shorter route home.  Glad I did as it's now absolutely bucketing down.

Grey dawn with honeysuckle

Start 4.36

Didn't take my inhalors this morning as I have a lung function test this afternoon.  Hoped I might be able to do without them but there was a noticable drop in (starting) speed and an increase in effort.  But no actual audible wheezing and I was able to keep going.

Stoatin' aboot

Start 4.35

Saw a stoat, or possibly a weasel, who really knows such things, running along the road in front of me this morning.  At first, from behind, I thought it was a large rat, but then it crossed the road and I saw it in full length profile, complete with mouse in its mouth.  It ran along the other side for a few more seconds then dived into the long grass of the verge to eat its breakfast.  I heard it rustling but could no longer see it.
