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
