      Love the British weather. I very nearly didn't get wet today and then it started to rain heavily when I was about 2 min from home. I'm impressed that you got snow, sun, hail and rain all in 5 miles though.

      I always find it tough to feel enthusiastic about going out into the wet and damp drabness that we often get in the morning at this time of year. Hat off to you for getting out there anyway and finding that you could put more into the run than your originally thought. Love a strong second half:-)

      Nice work David. A strategy that some runners use is to have two pairs of trainers on the go. By alternating between two pairs if trainers you change the pressure on your feet - or so they say.

      Yes I'm rotating 3 pairs at the moment trying to get my legs used to whatever I throw on as they're all quite different. I think I just need to increase my distance slower and try not to do so many consecutive days but very difficult with my shift pattern.
