You're all to blame

I've been recovering since yesterdays 10K, reading posts, providing my tuppence worth. What happens? I look outside the sky is blue, the weather cold, ground icy so I put on my trail shoes and it's off into the woods I go. Miss Garmin recommended 40 hours recovery, I've only done 32. Never mind, a nice slow jog 7:40mins per km was my target which I blew. 34 mins for 5K it really is difficult to run slower when the sun is shining. Looks cold and darker now. So thank you for all your inspirational posts I really enjoyed my run and I get a rest tomorrow before another 10K on Sunday. Miss Garmin reckons 39 hours now to recover.

Have great weekend runs all

Clearly not. Especially as it's the start of the weekend!

Sometimes her estimates worse than a service delivery managers with clear recollection of the last "we'll do that as bau" discussion :)

You've got it really bad GF haven't you? Only a runner would see a blue sky and take to the woods! Sounds beautiful.
