training run #988

5C, clear skies, cold.  The coldest it’s been for months, so I swapped my t-shirt for long sleeves for a 13 mile run. Good call. Set out half an hour before sunrise and enjoyed a fantastic view as the sun came up.  Had 2 gels and 500ml water.  Didn’t tire as much towards the end compared to last week. Could be due to getting fitness back and/or the cool temperature; I always feel better running when it’s not warm.

Another work trip will upset my running early next week – an exhibition in Edinburgh.  Hoping the 4 hour train ride won’t affect my knees like the others did.
