I have not run for about one and half weeks due to voluntary work commitments and chores' to do in the garden. So this morning started overcast so less heat so off i set. I already had a slightly different route planned in my head which included stopping at the local post office to buy my Sunday newspaper. After 3.6 km i paused at the post office bought said Sunday paper, wrapped it in a carrier bag restarted the Garmin and off I set for the final 1.4 km. About 1/2 km from the finish i realised i was close to my PB for 5km so upped the pace but did not beat my PB but posting a reasonable 32m 3s not bad for a 63 year old. I blame the carrier bag which whilst the weight of the Sunday papers helped in building upper body muscle i blame the bags lack of aerodynamics slowing my pace against my normal aerodynamic shape (lot of poetic license there). Still it was really good to get out and run again, hopefully more runs this week as it looks like it might cool down a little
