I really enjoyed my run today. Ran naked (well, without any audio accompanyment). After my 10k on Monday, I wondered how I'd feel. I felt good, and started off at too brisk a pace. I moderated it a bit and got into a groove, running a pace that was on the hard side of comfortable. I was running on a nice course - through a little village part of Oxford, over a lock, along the Thames towpath, over Folly Bridge in the middle of Oxford, back along the other bank of the river, past Christ Church College, finishing by the Botanical Gardens. It's a nice course, but harder than the one where I'd run most of my 5ks. Lots of little bridges to go over that breaks the stride pattern and makes you work a bit harder.
I pushed myself at the end of the run and managed a new PB by several seconds - 33:28
I think I prefer running naked, being able to experience my surroundings more fully. I'm going to try another slow run tomorrow, and see how that goes, rest Friday, and do Parkrun Saturday.
Good, this running thing, isn't it?
