For a variety of reasons I was working from home this morning â€“ which meant â€“ early morning run instead of my commute! The 5k was fairly standard, although odd running with a head-torch, past early morning commuters driving into the station and trying to avoid slipping on the countryside frost.
I was wearing the new trainers, which surprisingly enough were totally comfortable and didnâ€™t seem to need much breaking in. Even the ITB rolling was less painful than Iâ€™d expectâ€¦ so hopefully a good investment and encouragement to resume training.
2011 distance to date â€“ 25.7 miles â€“ about a marathon in the first three weeks. My pace is still pretty mediocre, but at least Iâ€™m starting to rebuild the routineâ€¦
