training run #1320

20C, overcast with a bit of drizzle on and off.  An 8 mile run commute, first run work>home.  Doing the reverse trip was a change. Felt surprisingly good after a long work day.  Enjoyed the uphills out from the city centre, lots of bounce, good form, kept heels high, used glutes.  Powered up the hills, loved it.  Drank 400ml water. 

Knocked over 30 seconds off my PB going the other way.  I think running this way has sharper, shorter uphills, and longer gentler inclines down, which may have helped the time.  Regardless, the change was good and I was strong throughout.
