Last January, I realised that I had run far fewer miles in 2014 than in previous years, and that this was because I’d got into the habit of skipping runs if the weather looked at all unpleasant, or if I was tired, or all sorts of other excuses.
So I set myself a target that I’d only be able to meet if I went out no matter what, and that’s what this cartoon is about.
This approach has reminded me that, actually, runs in the rain can actually be some of the most enjoyable ones. And, like the cartoon says, if you didn’t go out when it was raining, you’d never go out – well, certainly in this part of the world and at this time of year.
I’m glad to say that I reached my target in 2015 and I’m still on the same ‘no excuses’ regime this year, so it works for me.
In fact, such is my dedication these days, if Nick Cave does pop round, I might have to hurry him out of the door before he asks for a second cup of tea.
