After a fast 10k in the heat on Sunday, followed by a strenuous track session last night, an nice easy run was on the cards.
As I pulled on my running gear I heard that well known sound of any English summer – the pitter patter of rain outside. I don’t often do slow or recovery runs very well, as I always speed up! This evening though, it was nice to slip out into the summer rain and run 7.5k at a relaxed pace. In the wet, the lanes were empty of the usual dog walkers and evening walkers and I had the full 35 minutes all to myself : ) A tonic after a busy day at work and one of the reasons I love running.
A rest tomorrow night before the next Upton race (3.5 miles)
