14C, warm, overcast and muggy. An 8 mile run-commute.  Didn’t need to navigate today, remembered the route perfectly.  Had bounce throughout, and only slight foot niggle.  Drank 400ml water and had a gel before and at halfway.  Enjoyed it.

8C, mild, overcast. An 8 mile run into work.  Thought I’d try doing the commute on foot.  Planned the route taking a bit of trail in.  It was hard work in parts, hilly.  Drank 500ml water.  Had to pause here and there to navigate, so I expect to be faster next time.  The odd spot of rain at halfway turned into light rain at the end.  Noticed foot niggle from about three miles, it went off then returned; on and off.
