10C, a cool and grey day with cloud cover. Did the usual 7 mile run, no problems. At least it’s stopped raining after a few days non-stop. I picked up the pace a bit on the first lap to keep ahead of some other runners behind me, felt a bit like an interval session.

11C, cool and rainy. Went for the usual 7 mile run, same as yesterday but more: more rain, more wind, more puddles. So I put on my lightweight jacket and was soaked through after the first mile. It felt faster than yesterday but was actually slightly slower. Finished strong, no problems.

11C, cool, with a fairly stiff headwind on the far side of RV. Went for a 7 mile run, and there was light drizzle on the first lap. Second lap it turned to light rain. No problems. Saw lots of goslings, small rabbits and a squirrel today.

11C, grey and drizzly. Went for a 13 mile run on the usual route. Used 2gels and 500ml water. Took it easy, and legs took a few miles to get going. Slight drizzle on and off, then on entering Wales at 14km it started proper raining on and off all the way home. The ball of my left foot started feeling slightly sore again in just the last couple of miles. Probably residual blistering from the marathon. Was surprised at the time, thought it’d be more like 2:05.

11C, grey, drizzly. Went for the usual 7 mile run. Only noticed slight drizzle once or twice on this run. Relatively cool with a north east wind, and only a running gilet. No problems.

12C, persistent heavy rain. Went for a 7 mile run in cool rain, very wet underfoot, large puddles and standing water at RV. In spite of this I enjoyed the run. No problems.
