50 mins/38:40 (3½ miles)
I made several mistakes today, although I have finally bought myself a hat.
The first mistake was to eat too much for breakfast. I decided to make up a variant on heuvos rancheros, one of my favourite hearty breakfasts. This was stupid because I wasn't really that hungry; I was just trying to use up food from last night's burritos.
The second mistake was to use raw spring onions on my over-large breakfast - I can cope with a small amount of raw onion with a meal, but apparently not first thing in the morning. I felt a bit ill most of the day. In fact, I started hiccupping ten minutes before my run. The hiccups went away once I started running, but they came back again once I stopped!
But the most enduring mistake this week is the old shoes. I am frankly amazed that I used to wear these all the time, because my legs are really sore from running in them for just a couple of days.
I'll try running in them again on Thursday, but I doubt I'll run in them again much after this.
Thursday will also be the first day when I'll try my hat out. The forecast is still warm.
