Hello! I actually managed to sneak in a run yesterday and I am considering it my long-awaited W7R3 as it was just over 25 minutes without walking intervals. I set off without particular expectations since, as you know, I've been very sporadic lately what with my sore foot and knee and ongoing difficulties about getting around my condition of house arrest and thought I would probably take pauses and so on, but I was OK to keep going once I'd got started. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I went out at about 7.15 am which is late for me, and was amazed at how many Sunday morning runners I encountered along the way (I am usually out before everyone else, I think). It was lovely and I enjoyed all the happy greetings and sense of easy camaraderie. I can definitely feel the consequences of not running much at the moment - it was far more of a struggle to me than usual but I stopped when I was ready - I didn't push beyond what felt like a sort of healthy discipline. My knees had a kind of tired soreness during the rest of the day (but both of them equally, not just the previously dodgy one, and no actual pain) and they are both absolutely fine today so that's good.
Also, I don't know why I had never before given any consideration to the fact that the street running along the back of my offices is called Via dei Corridori - Runners' Road! It must be a sign!!
The photo is another glimpse of Trajan's forum, one of the many places I've fallen in love with again as a result of running in Rome.
Hope you all have a good week. xx
