How to clean your trainers

2016-01-03 14.12.37
Before you’ve done it, the idea of running in the rain, particularly if its cold and windy, sounds a bit horrible. As most seasoned runners know though, running in the rain can be quite fun and to keep up marathon training, necessary. Setting out in the rain is the hardest bit, when you are warmed up you soon get used to it and the fact that it’s raining is soon forgotten.

My problem today was that it was quite cold and windy, coupled with the fact I have done two demanding runs in last two days.  To be honest I struggled and was glad to be back in the warm.

Running in the rain is far more fun in the summer when its nice and warm and considerably less windy.

Therefore, I have decided to give running a break for a few days and do something gentle in the gym instead; I really don’t want to over-do it so early in my marathon training programme.  Maybe I can sit down and work out the programme!

On the positive side though, I now have clean trainers!
