About 12C, sunny, cool. Went for another 5 mile run but this time planned an out and back route using minor roads. Got off to a bad start landing on my backside getting over a barrier at the other side of the main road. Only embarrassment, and a banged elbow. Enjoyed the run, brilliant weather. Along narrow single track country roads. Right foot was landing flat again until my heel got going at 1 mile, then ran more normally. No pain, just ‘odd’. Checked the map afterwards and realised I’d gone well off my planned route, but I didn’t get lost.

13C, overcast, drizzly. First run since completing Liverpool marathon. Ran from hotel in Lisieux, out and back along a main road.  Didn’t feel any real heel discomfort but my right foot felt like it was slapping down, didn’t have much bounce in my leg.  Nice to get running though, and my leg felt stronger and was running more normally after a few km.  Saw a few rabbits, a pony and a loud Alsatian guard dog, but concentrated on the light traffic heading towards me.  Had a headwind on the return, and tired slightly.  5 miles.
