After my dreadful practice run on Saturday decided to give it a couple of days to get my head together and give it another go.
Headed out today in the bright but chilly Derbyshire countryside, a pleasant change from my home run in Kent, decided to run a flatter section rather than attempt the hilly forest, as I am sure it was the never ending hill that forced my run to be a practice last time.
Took it nice and steady, enjoyed the chill of the air and sunshine as I ran through unfamiliar Territory... think it helps having the change of scenery, something to take ones mind of the time, which I am sure slows once you start running !!
Felt comfortable and really enjoyed myself.. not going to break any speed records, but the one thing I have learned is that it’s not about speed and that slow and steady wins every time!!
Hope everyone had a great Christmas Day and is enjoying Boxing Day.
