After tweaking an tendon in the back of my leg a fortnight ago, I stopped running for a bit to rest up. Last night I backtracked to an earlier podcast (W6R1) which I thought would probably match my deflated fitness level. I discovered the following things:
Five minute sessions of running seems *really* short;
I'm working in Tiberias at the moment (15 degrees today), so could run in shorts rather than the tights I have been wearing - what a liberation!
My pace hasn't dropped too much;
now the achilles tendon on the other leg feels tight.
Anyway, this still seems more appealing for running in than frost-and-fog-bound Oxfordshire...
