Up early for a run that I really didn’t want to do. Kept snoozing the alarm and could tell my right calf was a bit tight. I’m tired; leave me alone.
Eventually dragged bones and got on with it. Have a shave (because I’m too hot after running to do it with an electric razor and no time for a wet shave) and brush teeth. Running gear on.
Tried and failed to find Suggs on DID so made do with an old crush, Prof Tanya Byron.
Small amount of Toxic 10 accompanied by gremlins telling me my right leg was dropping off. Pushed through. Wouldn’t describe it as an enjoyable run - it felt quite a struggle
I don’t know what listening to Kirsty and Tanya did but I put in my fastest run at 8”24’/k and covered 3.81k in just over 30 mins (as I now always run back to my start. First split was sub-8”/k. This might explain the struggle!
The photo is of the handsome beast I saw on the way out and who was pretty much in the same place when I got back having run nearly 4k. Perhaps I’m not as slow as I think.
Nice and relaxed for a day of meetings ahead.
Whatever you are running next, enjoy it x
