Todays run was just a quick one before work. It was meant to be light and easy, but to be honest, my legs felt surprisingly tired and lethargic. Surprising because I have cut back on the distance I have run this week, and yet that single run I did a few days ago at a higher pace has seemed to take much longer to recover from than when I chose to run a significantly longer distance than usual.
Something to bear in mind for future training sessions I suspect.
Anyway, after 15-20 mins the muscles seemed to eventually loosen off and I got into to a relaxed rhythm. The route for today was a lap around the village, and by the time I completed the first lap my legs seemed to have a bit more life in them so I did a 2nd (smaller) lap resulting in 7.8km in total.
As for the weather, it was nice and bright and cheerful out there today. It was a cool 5C which was nice, but once again I struggled with the bright sunshine, I still haven't got any sunglasses yet!
