15 nov 2013 – the reason


such a good song, i don’t even need a reason to use it…

so today saw an early start, awake just after 2 and raring to go for a run at no specific pace, just what came naturally.

legs feeling good, blisters healing. was definitely tired though, had a long nap on the bus.

the day as a whole is a little flat. looking forward to a rest day tomorrow and then my first ever 5km event!

got the day off to a great start, with a thoroughly pleasant 6.5km run – no specific pace, just a steady run to get the blood pumping through the limbs after yesterday’s intervals. Didn’t check the pace until I got back – very happy with the consistency throughout the entire run!
