The filthy weather of the weekend continued today, and I have spent it doing pretty much the same as I did yesterday - enjoying a gruelling looking world cycling road race, and the more rapidly evolving drama of the athletics.
I have got out for a run today, a very slow trot for 6km wearing my bright orange rain jacket that ends up sweltering you so much you are wetter than you would have been if you hadn't worn it.
Slow though I may be, the fact that I'm out there is the key. It has been national get outside day today, and get outside I did, and after plodding around in the murk I found myself being greeted by a little watery sunshine over the sconce cannon.
Hopefully I will another run in tomorrow, although the forecast is awful again. I might also patrol the second hand shops, bought a "new" jacket from one the other day, a rather good one called The White Rose.
It doesn't even have second hand shop smell.
