W8/R3- 15M steady+ downgraded to 'keep it comfortable and see how you get on'. Lurgy still in play so needed to keep my sensible head on. Had absolutely no expectations about this one, so chose a route that provided lots of bail-out options but also had the potential for laps. Focus was very much on running comfortably, so eased back on the hills and didn't look at the watch, and it all went surprisingly well, really. Rain came in and temperature dropped in the last couple of miles, so decided to quit while I was ahead. All things considered, much better than I was anticipating and enjoyable.
Chuffed about this one. Went out hoping to safely get to 10k and pushed a little beyond that. Calf gave the odd twinge, but feels far far better than previous weeks. I'm hoping its well enough for me to start getting a mid week run in again. A couple of HM's in Feb and the 20 miler in March in the diary. I had written the 20 miler off ... but never say never and wondering whether it may still be on the cards. Will look to up it 13 miles by end of this month and then just see where we are during Feb.
This run was up to the local country park and then around, mostly off road and scenic enough. A tad chilly ... would be an understatement.
