OK, so it wasn't one of my better ideas....
Well, it kept me warmer until the heavens opened and I was rubbing water out of my face. I could have turned back, I hadn't got very far - but no, quitting is for wimps and whiners. About 2 miles in and my determination had wavered. The only thing keeping me going was that I was more than half way around now. Then the thunder started and I really got pissed off - yet for some reason was laughing manically. Must have looked a real sight to passing motorists.
Unfortunately due to my lack of determination and my water soaked coat my running time was slower than normal as well.
So with this in mind, I am going to retire to the bath for a soak until I a) become more wrinkled than I already and and b) warm up.
The ironic thing - the sun's shining now.....
