Thursdays was a 7 mile recovery run. I plotted my route using the RunGo app, I have used this in the past and it’s always worked reasonably well for me.
I did the run in the morning after working a night shift, This is not something I do often, I prefer to run after a sleep but needs must – I did find I got tired quicker though.
It was beautiful route due to a huge chunk of the run being off road, I was really enjoying myself thinking how perfect the route was, that was until around mile 4!
I was back running on the pavement again and when I looked up my jaw dropped – The mother of all hills, I had totally forgot about this hill, it was huge, I was knackered when I got to the top.
Between mile 5 and 6 I felt my energy levels drop but I knew I did not have far to go so I carried on but I was pleased when I finished 🙂
- Distance 7.02 mi
- Pace 10:08 /mi
- Time 1h 11m
No stinging nettles on this route but loads of bushes spraying rain water on my legs, I will take that any day to getting stung 🙂
Time to get back to work, Night all
