The clocks going back to GMT at the weekend has meant a reduced choice in routes as the dark nights limit us to running on roads with street lighting.
Monday night was also a battle against the elements as strong winds buffeted me throughout a 7 mile run, from Medomsley, up to and around Consett, and back again. I also included 2 x 1.5 miles at tempo.
Last night, we managed to avoid the worst of the weather as the torrential rain eased off just as six of us set out for an interval session of 5 x 4mins with 3 mins jog recovery. The route was once again around the streets of Dunston and The Teams, with two laps of the track to take the distance up to 8 miles.
Although it has been very windy and wet, temperature wise it is very mild with temperatures averaging 9C.
My knees and hamstrings are once again objecting to my attempts at speed work so an easy 6 miles should appease them tonight.
