Continuing my recent regime of steady miles, the week got off to a good start. Temperatures were so high on Wednesday that I scaled back my effort in favour of a relaxed 10km. The rest of the week I spent deliberating whether or not I was willing to rejoin society again and run with a small group. I made the right choice and ran a rather delightful “speed check” half-marathon with the gang, socially distanced of course. It was the greatest feeling in such a long time.
Weekly mileage is slightly up on recent weeks also. I could easily have topped 40 miles this week had I been so inclined. However, it wasn’t necessary and I’m sticking to what feels right and comes without too much of a push for now.
A lovely slow 8 miles to loosen out the legs on Sunday was the icing on a very nice (running) cake for the week. Taking part in a race-like situation (albeit not racing flat out), with other people, for the first time in nearly 4 months. There are no words. It’s good for the mind, the body, and the soul.
