Back up to 5k after the IC, feeling happy.

So a gorgeous sunny January afternoon here in the North East saw me set off through the mud filled country paths behind Dinnington village.

For once I jogged along without constantly checking my pace (although my trusty Strava app was in my pocket). Birds were everywhere in the fields and hedgerows, perhaps fooled by the sun into thinking it was Spring despite the temperature being just above freezing. Distracted by the lovely views I went along quite happily for 5k in 35 minutes.

After all the nuisance of hurting my back and not being able to run at all between Christmas and New Year I am really pleased and feel it's onwards and upwards from now on.

Happy running. πŸ˜ƒ

Make sure you do what I always struggle with, slow and steady.

Good luck.
