After a well earned rest and recovery from being ill, I wasn't hungry for training, but I knew I had to get out there so I got my waterproofs on an off I went.

After the first mile, I thought "I'm not really enjoying this" but I had to man up from the wind, rain and cold and get another 4 miles under my belt.

The first 3 miles is completed in the pitch black on a limited access road so its a tad bit scary when its just you, the head torch and the road. I forgot my iPod so I ended up jumping or gasping at every little bark, toot or rustle in the hedges. I suppose it made me run quicker.

After completing the first lap I though to myself I've still got a bit left in the tank here and lets bang out 2 more miles for the 5 mile marker. I kicked on and I was really surprised that I had completed a PB for the route and a decent time for 5 miles.

So, even thought I didn't really feel like running, and I had no drive to go out I did it, and managed a decent time. Do I want to go out running tomorrow?

No... Not really... I need my hunger for training to come back!
