Out in all weathers
Being back at work is ace. I do miss the lie-ins of the Xmas break being up at 5.30am. Tiring and stressful, but I like the challenge and structuring my day to get the maximum amount of work done. I usually work 12 hours a day at school, but today had to come home earlier for a furniture delivery before I went out on my run.
Being lazy I went for the tailwind first. With 30mph behind you, running is easy. Coming back and uphill into the driving rain was challenging but well worthwhile when I got back home and into a warm bath.
The Salomon XA 3D Pro arrived today. I'll be taking them straight back. I put one on the kitchen scales; 465g for a size 12.5. Ouch. I'm opting for the Peregrines instead. think of carrying an extra 430g of footwear over 100 miles. No way! That's a lot of extra, much needed calories burned. It also saves burning money too. I am becoming older and wiser about trying kit out and then Ebaying after it has been wardrobed for 6 months if I don't like.....it now just goes straight back.
