Chilly medium-long run

Strava can fuck off – my watch said 14.0 miles and I sure as shit wasn’t going to run another inch! I had forgotten how tough these mid-week medium-long runs can be, and my legs felt pretty tired in the final few miles especially on the hills. Still, that’s the point of these sessions I suppose.

My cough has almost completely gone now and that’s reflected in the performance today vs yesterday – same average HR on a longer, hillier route, and at a faster pace too. Relieved my fitness seems to be coming back – it’s silly I know but after a few poor performances I always start to worry I’ve somehow taken a big step back.
