The mud is back !

Well, after all the rain we have had the mud is well and truly back. I skipped the training group run this morning (opting for a bit longer in bed) and went for a run on my own over the Downs instead.

Some of the puddles were frozen over, and some of the mud had a “crunchy” top coat….. I had also forgotten how much harder running through mud can be, the first four miles are not only all up hill but are also the muddiest section of the route…

I stopped to take a few photos on my phone of the views….

These views make it all worth while šŸ™‚

So, that is week 3 of a 20 week marathon training plan done… I’m a bit above my mileage this week but my plan is a bit flexible… for the next two weeks I have Christmas and the New Year so I’m not quite sure how I will fit in the running. I also need to mark on my plan the dates when I know I’m working away and may very well not be able to get out running; hopefully it won’t impact things too much…

So in 17 weeks time the marathon will  be over… strange though that…
