4C, cloudy and overcast, cold.  Went for a 13 mile run, my first since doing back to back marathons.  Wore lightweight jacket and gloves.  Had 2 gels and 500ml water.  Kept the run at easy pace but felt halfway through that I’d picked too long a route.  From 13/14k I started to struggle, my quads and adductor so were weak.  Minor left knee niggle early on went away later.  A few of the marathon blisters came back – only noticed afterwards, not a problem during the run.
