I haven't been able to run for a week. I haven't been on the injury couch, but I have spent most of the past week on the "poorly throne" (silver lining - I've lost half a stone :))
Felt better the last day or so, so went out this morning with Zombies Run for company. Just intending to see how I got on.
Turned out I got on quite well. I felt pretty good from the outset, got into a nice pace which was slightly faster than I usually set out (but not as fast as when I got caught up with everyone at parkrun the other week) but it felt comfortable so I went with it.
I did regret wearing my warm tights and long sleeved tee under my regular tee. I got a tad warm to say the least!
Ended up doing 5.01km in 36:40 which is 1:03 faster than my previous best There's also no sign of any aches or niggles in my legs.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and have been feeling good all morning.
Hopefully I'll have another bash at parkrun on Saturday as well.
