I went out tonight to deliberately try to run a slow 5k, after being a bit of a big kid on Saturday and deciding to see how fast I could manage it. (My legs have not been thanking me since - turns out once you've absolutely flogged yourself for 2k the next 3 get a bit...interesting 😂).
Anyway, i thoroughly enjoyed myself despite the still aching legs, and noticed loads of new runners out and about in the cold, a lot of them looking like they were just starting c25k. It was great to see, I felt like giving them all high fives. If you've just started for the new year, congratualtions!
Also, I only remembered during the run that we're past the longest day of the year, and the evenings are only going to get longer from here on out, so I kept myself amused by repeating 'run towards the light!' To myself for the last kilometer 😁
