15 January – Looking For Mr Blue Sky

Mr Blue Sky Finally Shows Up

Having read Cat Bradley’s recent post about Winter Exercise, (and btw doesn’t she look good on it?) I realised that yesterday when I ran, although the weather was yucky, it didn’t actually stop me going out. That’s a good thing  – what with this barmy challenge of 2018 kms in 2018 I’ve set myself.

London isn’t known for its blue skies, frankly the unappealing shade of grey, is the usual tone. So absolutely bloody typical, after a morning of rain and bleurgh weather, this afternoon Mr Blue Sky is making an appearance. No doubt he will disappear tomorrow when I am running again.

My weather inspired playlist may or may not have helped me yesterday, but there are two tracks that always get me moving faster and that’s the famous Mr Blue Sky and The Weather Girls and their hit ‘It’s Raining Men’.

Tomorrow, whether the weather be fair or foul, I shall be running from Hampstead to Home and a little bit more as a minimum I have to do 10km. And so decisions, decisions do I run to my Weather Mix or something else?
