D33 training run 3

What a week it has been, everyone has been talking about the weather, well i took Tuesday off due to the  weather,i tried a run on Wednesday morning at 5am, during my 14 mile run i was soaked and blown about, i knew that after yesterday it wasn't going to get better over so i took Thursday off rather try and run in the strong winds, what the heck it won't harm your training but does reduce the mileage.
   I Knew the Glee club were setting off from Drymen car park today at 08:45 but unfortunately i could not make it as i had to be back for 10am, so i was out at 5 o'clock heading for my long run round darkest Lanarkshire, the day started fine, it was quite mild then as i left Airdire the rain came bouncing down, i was soaked within minutes, nothing else to do except continue on, i came through Newhouse,Holytown, New Stevenson and into Motherwell heading for Strathclyde Park, i continued along the loch side coming out the far side into bothwell then Uddingston, by this time i was dry again, by the time i hit Bargeddie i went through Marathon distance in 3:23, not bad for an early morning run, so it was up the hill past Drumpellier Park back into Gartcosh then Muirhead and home. i finished just short of 33Miles (32.70) in 4:15 so i know that i am in good shape for the D33 in 6 weeks
