Hadn't run for 5 days, had opted out of a run, tired and achy, but determined to get back on the circuit. Unsure about taking Laura with me ( she does keep on a bit!) ummed and aahed a bit and then ended up with the interval training podcast! Took a 3 minute recovery walk then carried on running. Fastest 5K to date, and I wasn't struggling to complete it. That 5 day break was worth it.
