3C, cold, windy with snow and sleet showers. A 7 mile run commute. Earlier in the day I questioned whether it was a good idea, or just catch the tram. But it wasn’t snowy underfoot and I have good gear to wear.

The usual heel niggle but enjoyed it.

6C, cool, dark. A 7 mile run commute home. Had to carry my laptop, a Surface Pro, by hand. Didn’t have a backpack suitable. My usual 3L backpack had the cables and 2 mobiles in.

Thought I’d be a lot slower but walking up the steepest bits didn’t affect time a lot. Right heel niggled a bit.

Using Fitbit for a few runs to get a feel for heart rate, think my slow runs need to be slower.

2C, cold, grey. A 7 mile run commute to work. Kept it easy pace, particularly thinking about saving energy for running home later. Noticed right heel a lot for the first mile.

6C, cold, rainy, windy. A 7 mile run commute into work. Followed the same route as yesterday in reverse. Kept it very easy pace, persistent onward progress. There are a few long gradual inclines to grind out. Enjoyed it though, listened to a podcast.

I don’t usually have breakfast before a run, but did today. Made sure I had an hour or more to digest it a little.

8C, rainy and windy. A 7 mile run commute home.

Thought I’d start up the run commute again. Took a different route to previously, sticking to the footpaths on Stradbroke Road, Beighton Road, through Woodhouse instead of the trail part of the route alongside Mosborough Parkway. (Thought it’d be too boggy with the heavy rain.)

Didn’t push on, just enjoyed it. The usual heel niggle on and off.

6C, cold, sunny with clear skies.  An 8 mile run commute into work.  The plan called for mile repeats today, so after the first 2 miles did 3x mile repeats, then cool down run into the office.  

Enjoyed it, intervals gave me something to focus on, felt like a worthwhile effort. The crisp weather was lovely.  Drank 200ml water.
