So - I wasn't really feeling it this morning when I woke up, but the good thing about a running streak is once you've decided to do it the 'will I ? won't I?' debate isn't one you have to have and since I have stuff planned for later, today needed to be a morning run.
So out I go, planning on a run in Uni Parks but as I set off across Maudlin Bridge I'm reminded of Empem's mention of Christchurch Meadow a few days ago (and though I often run in Uni Parks I've never run in Christchurch Meadow) so I head up through town so I can drop down to Christchurch. I couldn't believe how quiet Oxford was! It was like running through an episode of Morse.
Anyway 10 minutes in and I'm feeling much better- though at 3k my legs did feel a bit heavy - and at the end I felt I could have carried on. I just feel fitter and my pace is improving. Not sure if it's the streak or the fact that I've had a week off. It is I guess a combination of the two - but I'm enjoying it whatever 😁.
Happy New Year to you all. I hope it brings you all that you wish for and lots of great running. Xxx
