No, not the kind when you dress as a squirrel or a medieval knight. I made a decision this morning to take this one very slow and steady, to see if I got my robot legs again - and I did! This time for almost the whole run. My legs felt strong and no heaviness that I used to get. And thus = probably the most pleasurable run I have ever had. It was dark and quiet and so ridiculously mild I had to run in a vest and shorts.
One hairy moment when a fox squared up to me. 😱 I could see him/her on the pavement ahead of me, just staring as I approached. Pretty sure from the look on its face it wasn't seeing a 5ft 5in woman running towards it, rather it was seeing a big juicy chicken. It only scampered off at the last minute as I approached. Essentially it was playing chicken with me!
So, my distance and pace were not impressive, but my bliss levels were. And that's important to me. I shall try a slightly faster pace for my next run. It's fun to play with your runs!
