Mildly moist

I ran to work this morning.  It was meant to be my effort for the day, but come six o’clock, I felt refreshed and ready to run again.*

So I ran home.  Which meant putting my kit back on.  My cold, soggy kit.  Ugh.

  • Splits on way to work: 10:39, 9:56, 9:47, 8:59
  • Splits on way home: 10:09, 10:06, 10:17, 9:46
  • Soggy socks donned: 2

*Not really.  But I did realise that I had no coat and only office shoes.**

**Which are perfectly comfortable for walking round the office in, but cripplingly uncomfortable as soon as they come into contact with the pavement.***

***Pavement as in sidewalk, not pavement as in road.****

****Though they’d probably be just as uncomfortable on the latter.

    Your footnotes are getting longer than your blog! Very funny though 🙂

    Lol… Although I am thinking, could you not just have changed your shoes to your trainers and walked home?! I am impressed with the effort! 🙂

    Very impressive!
    You need to master the act of airing kit and putting it back on again (maybe that only works overnight)

    HA! Loved your postsript clarification of the word “pavement.” Was that especially for me? Because yes, being American, my mind’s eye immediately went to “road” until I saw your note… whereby I put you up on the sidewalk where you belong 🙂

    Running to & fro work, in wet clothes no less. HARDCORE.
