13-16C, warm, cloudy with sunny breaks.  A 15 mile run.  Legs felt OK but not especially strong. Felt right heel niggle and a stiff calf on and off.  Had 3 gels and 500ml water.  First time I have seen a deer while running. It was on the road 100m ahead as I headed along the road into Harthill.

13C, mild, sunny.  A 7 mile run.  Legs felt OK and thought I’d done just a normal 65-66 minute run.  Must have had an extra spring in my step as it was a 63+ minute run, which is good for me.

Took a few photos. Today the leave-EU result was announced yet Rother Valley still looks the same… beautiful 🙂

11C, cool and overcast.  A 15 mile run.  I felt a bit off when I got up, a bit flushed / hot and a stiff back.  Would have been easy to get back in bed, but decided to stick to the plan for a run and see how it goes.  Just ran at an easy pace and didn’t check Garmin for any stats.  Had gels at 7, 14 and 19km and 500ml water. Could have done with more water.  It ended up as a slow time, but just pleased to finish OK and didn’t throw up or have any big problems.
