training run #841

12C, bright and cool, with high cloud blocking out the sunrise. The training plan called for a 75 minute run with 3x 800m intervals (400m recovery). Did 8 miles, the usual route with an extra loop of the northern lake. Legs felt a bit unwilling at first, with a bit of stiffness in right heel/achilles. Even the intervals were not the best, just pushing enough to get into HR zone 3 rather than risk injury. Felt better on the second lap, got into a nice rhythm for a while. Drank 500ml water. Have been feeling a few aches and pains the past few days, particularly when I’ve been sat for a while. Think the higher mileage is taking its toll, making my muscles adapt and grow (hopefully!).
