Runstreak Day #198 - early run done, smug pants on

So... it's less than 12 hours since my last run... and I've had to cram in my run at 6am because there will be no time for the rest of the day.  Am off to London until tomorrow and with this runstreaking lark, you just have to grab whatever opportunity you can for a run.  There is a special technique to going for an early morning run... it is this:

1.  Get your kit ready the night before
2.  Place kit in bathroom
3.  When you (inevitably) have to go for a 'middle of the night pee' (the joy of being nearly 40), put on kit
4.  Except socks, no-one wants their feet to be too hot in bed
5.  Wake up at 5:30, vaguely recall you were going to go for a run
6.  Go for another pee
7.  Realise you're already dressed in your running kit so you might as well put your socks and trainers on and go
8.  Go.

Then there's the small matter of actually running.  But it basically boils down to 'just do it' as the technique.  This morning's run was short.  2.5 miles and that was enough to get me red faced and sweaty... and earned me a ginormous cuppa cha and the right to wear my smug pants for the rest of the day.

They suit me... right?
