"On the first of May it is moving day;
Winter's here, so blow your job, throw your job away;
Now's the time to trust to your wanderlust,
In the city's dust you wait, must you wait? Just you wait:"
(Rodgers & Hart, 1926)
So, out at 9:00am after a quick cup of coffee, into the first touch of winter by way of a mighty strong, cold wind; great to have on the way out but felt like marking time on the return of 15km; good for mental toughness, but nothing else!
What I'd planned for an 'easy' 15km run was to do 5km splits 35:30; 35:42 and 35mins; What happened was quite different! 37:26; 37:44; 43:41!!! That blasted wind!
In spite of such plodding, I was cheered up every time I looked at my new running shorts! So flashy, I would have caused a traffic jam had there been any to stop! "Race Ready" LD shorts with the 4 rear & 2 front mesh pockets; wild splashes of purple, pink, red & blue! Just love them & have sent for another LD pair (Colour: Charcoal...more sedate this time!) & LD tights in navy blue with same rear pockets. (No financial or any other mercenary interest!)
An enjoyable start to the month of May despite the cold wind & beginning to look forward to the SMH half in 3 weeks time.
