Running in the dark

frosty common on early morning runFor a variety of reasons I was working from home this morning – which meant – 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 didn’t seem to need much breaking in. Even the ITB rolling was less painful than I’d expect… so hopefully a good investment and encouragement to resume training.

2011 distance to date – 25.7 miles – about a marathon in the first three weeks. My pace is still pretty mediocre, but at least I’m starting to rebuild the routine…
