Just cherry tomato face after today's run - a really good 5K! Much more fun than Friday's beetroot!
Aches didn't feel bad this afternoon and I was twitching... Bright sunshine, blue sky, lovely smell of freshly cut grass, kids playing and birds tweeting en route to the trusty canal... A lovely day for a run! No plans or grand ideas today for speed, distance, world domination... Just a chilled-out Sunday trot
And that's exactly what it was. A chilled out 37 minutes that felt much more leisurely, comfortable and enjoyable, evenly paced for each K, not pushing too hard, no niggles or ouchies, no pressure on myself, just a nice 5K Waving to the boat people, nodding to the dog walkers, laughing at an over-excited pup with an enormous stick who nearly tripped me up.
No trumpets of glory from the gadget today, but whilst that would be nice, this today is what I signed up for - just to be able to run, feel good, enjoy it and have it become a regular 'me' thing.
Hopefully no aches tomorrow, these legs need to get used to 15K a week for a while
Well done newbies, middleys, nearly there's and grads for your runs this weekend.
