Cool, 7C, overcast and breezy.  Went for a rare evening run, as I didn’t get back from picking Emma up in Camden until 3:00am and took the day off work.  Planned to just run easy and clock the miles, but as the run went on I felt good and the speed increased.  As well as the time of day, running into a headwind on the near side of Rother Valley seemed odd.  The weather for many weeks has given me a headwind on the far side.  I knew the pace was quite good (for me) but I tried to ease off and be cautious. I need to avoid injury rather than get more PBs, but this run did actually knock 10 seconds off my previous 7 mile best, run #546 on 13 Feb 13.  Felt strong to the end and no niggles.

Cool, 4C, cloudy, breezy.  Another 7 mile run.  First lap felt a bit slow, second lap a bit faster, but there was only one part of the run where it felt smooth and easy.  No niggles.

Cold, 2C, overcast and breezy.  Went for the usual 7 mile run.  Took hat off as I entered RV and was fine.  No running tights as the weather is turning less cold.  No real niggles, just strated easy and gradually increased the pace km by km.  A straightforward run.
