It was only 5km but felt like much more! Decided to keep again to soft ground to give my legs a rest and just run 5km. Plodded round at a steady speed on average 7.5 mins per km and thankfully the ground was still cold and frozen even at lunchtime, so a lot of the mud was firm! However, trying to stay on my feet was looking unlikely a couple of times as there were patches of churned up mud in a couple of places and no grass to give me grip! Made me giggle at the thought of landing in it all and crawling home but I did stay upright. Lovely scenery and the sun was shining and birds singing to distract me. Felt like I worked harder on soft ground but it was fun. Legs feel tired but uninjured so should be ok for my long run on Friday, could easily have twisted my ankle today but I am good to go!!
