Just a quick one today, as I haven't really got anything interesting to say today.
I've just come back from my run and for the first time I didn't feel all amazing and elated, but pretty p*ed off. The mosquitos (/mosquitoes??) are out - by the millions. And during my lovely evening runs in the forest along the river my sweaty heat attracts them like a magnet.
I spent my run flailing one hand in front of my face like mad and using the other one to pick them out of my eye lashes while coughing and spluttering them out of my mouth and nose... YUM!
Well, ladies and gents, this is the downside to exercise outdoors that nobody ever tells you about. Repellant doesn't work, full stop. If anyone reading this knows of a good way of keeping them at bay then please let me know. I have no time to go running in the mornings and don't particularly feel like running through town or on a treadmill either. Oh, the joys of nature, eh?
