This was a planned late evening short run, enough to blow the Friday rest day cob webs away, and enough to get me sweating!
I had lit the barbecue before I left for the run so I couldn't be too long, I was hungry before I left so the thought of barbecued food made me run that little big harder.
I was really please with my mile pacing, if anything hits the 8 minute mile im starting to get disappointed, so I do need to work harder on the last mile home. It is mainly uphill, a slow incline but its enough to make me hit that 8 minute mile marker. The roads were really quiet, no bikers, no cars, no runners everyone must have been down the beach, I dont blame them... Why was I out running?
I'm still wearing my compression socks as I think its helping my recovery, I'm sure I still look a daft but as there was hardly anyone out on the road I didn't mind.
I managed to clock in 998 miles for the year to date, so my next session which is the bike I will hit the 1000 mark! I'm very happy with that!
Got home, the coals were hot, and I ready to cook so its a short and sweet blog tonight... best get my chef hat on!
