I was a little worried about tonight’s run as it was so windy out there again. It was very very windy and I almost lost my favourite running hat as a massive lorry thundered by, but the run felt good! At about the half way point on the route we had to run up a really really long hill (longer then the long hill that you are imagining!) where I slowed right down, but my pace was ok throughout the rest of the run (my average pace stats don’t do it justice really).
After almost 4 miles we had a choice as some of the group were going to run down the hill and back to the rec and some of the group were going to carry on a bit further round before running up the hill to the rec. I surprised myself by choosing to take the longer route back! My legs were feeling fine so I was happy to carry on going. I didn’t even mind running in the wind and the rain as it meant that I didn’t get too hot as I ran.
The uphill bit back to the rec was a bit tough but I was pretty pleased with tonight’s run – definitely my best run of the year so far. Let’s hope it continues…
