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.
Distance: 7.64 miles
Avg pace: 9:16 min/mile
