14C, sunny and breezy.  An 8 mile run-commute.  

Yesterday (Monday) was supposed to be a rest day, but I did a day’s volunteering via work, moving bricks and building hardcore and soil at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.  Treated it as cross-training and paced myself.

This left me with plenty of stiff muscles today.  I was supposed to do a run at marathon pace, but just kept a decent, steady pace and didn’t try to achieve a specific number.

Had a flapjack at home for breakfast and drank 500ml water.  Enjoyed it.  Felt stiff hamstrings, quads, etc, but using glutes on the hills helped a lot.
