It felt like a very long day today. On my drive home I wasn’t particularly looking forward to going for a run. The initial plan was to go for a little pootle around the village, but as I got nearer home and rain began to fall, the wind was picking up and it was getting dark.
Plan B. Treadmill.
I pressed go on the treadmill and thought I’d do my regular 3 miles at a nice easy pace: 11min/mile. But after a couple of minutes It dawned on me it was going to take ages so went for a progressively faster pace every half mile, completing the last half mile at 8min/mile pace.
3.5 miles in all. It also felt good to get a bit of a sweat up despite not really feeling it.
