Ok so I am a bit obsessed with the weather. Partly it comes from my Dad- he always used to make us be quiet when the weather came on the TV so he could listen. Partly it comes from years of working in Nursery and Reception (outside learning every day) so I need to know what to wear to work. And more recently it comes from my love of running. I like to know the weather at the weekend in advance so I can plan my long run on the better day. I like to know how long the rain will last so when I get home from work I know whether to get out there straight away, or wait for the rain to stop or whatever. And also to know what to wear when I am out there! So I love to watch the weather before I go to bed, when I get up I listen to the weather on the radio, and also watch it on the news. And once snow is forecast, I get a little obsessed with the met office website! Watch this space!!
So snow is possibly forecast for Saturday, but at the moment I am still keeping it for my long run day, so I can get out there before it snows, or before it freezes to the pavements.
Anyway, today after work I wrapped up warm and headed out. I was after my 5 ish mile run, which is 2 big and one small loop near me, but I was feeling pretty good (slept much better last night which might be the reason why) so in the end I did the 3rd big loop. I also decided to pick up the pace in the middle part to push myself, and managed just under 6 miles in 56 minutes (loads to cross the roads etc) so I was pleased with the time.
I had some delicious pumpkin pasta (tofu, pumpkin, spinach, sundried tomatoes all whizzed up, with wholegrain pasta) alongside balsamic baked courgette and beetroot. Delish.
SO, are you obsessed with the weather? Or obsessed with anything else?
