Sundays long run

Sunday 12th May 2019

What a difference a couple of days can make, The sun was well and truly out – 14° and beautiful.

So today was my 12 mile long run, I had my usual breakfast of porridge with some raspberries mixed in, no coffee as did not want to be using the toilet 14 times on route.

Just as I am ready to leave my house I realised my water bladder was leaking – Very frustrating as my back was now wet.

This is the 2nd bladder bag to leak on me, fortunately they are very cheap to replace. I had to make do with a smaller water bottle instead.

Tomorrow I will be taking a trip to Decathlon (oh how terrible I have to go to my favorite shop on my day off and to actually buy something).

I had a fantastic run although my hip and leg was giving me some discomfort on the last few miles, when I got home I was pleases to stretch my leg and use my foam roller – instant relief 🙂

Strava tells me I ran another PB today so good news all round 🙂
