So I went out at 07:15 this morning,
First run in 13 days .
It was cold first thing , was going to wear gloves but not ideal for navigating the playlist on my phone ! so decided to leave them at home .
Halfway through my warmup walk I was tempted to go back and get them , but didn't
Once I had GPS lock (which took a while) I set off way too fast , I didn't feel like it but when I first looked at the watch I thought sloooow down !
It was important that I didn't burn out too early with this being the first run in 13 days , anyway, settled down within the first half K.
It didn't really take long to feel in the groove again apart from a little left knee niggle at about 2K
This was a little concern as I don't usually feel it at this distance, I usually notice it if I'm on a 10K and generally comes in around 8K.
Anyway, it didn't become more than a niggle so didn't really affect my run .
I hadn't really decided how far I was going to run today , all I knew was I wanted to be out here again running .
My work has stopped again from today so needed my running for both physical AND mental fitness.
I used the route that I used for my C25K runs so I know how far I have gone .
Once I reached around 3.5K I decided I would do a 5K.
I could have easily carried on but thought no, with it being the first run in 13 days and a knee niggle I don't think it would have been sensible !
So, 5K done , stretches done , porridge done ! 😁
Oh, and here is a random picture of my cat Misty !
Well, why not 😁
