    3m walk/run with daughter and dog, both curled up in bed asleep now.
    Beautiful evening, cool but no wind.

    6.9 miles locally on my own with Aplkit headtorch and dieing batteries... Was OK until the section through the woods - i found myself speeding up then...!

    Silly really, I do Night Orienteering events and I never get spooked on those - i guess the difference is there's usually someone else running nearby with a headtorch, and the adrenaline of racing keeps you focussed. Training on your own in the dark is a different matter.

    Gonna put a proper bright headtorch on my xmas pressie list !

    Does anyone else find that their own breath gets in the way when using a headtorch? Obviously NOT breathing isn't an option, but it's like having yer own little fog bank sometimes. I've always run on my own at night before, mebbe this coming wednesday is the start of something new for me, if I can scam an hour off work...

    A very wet and windy 3m with a windswept, wet dog who looked like a drowned weasel when we got home.
