What terrible weather it is in the north at the moment. Rain, heavy wind, sleet and the back end of a tornado on my run last night. It really felt like the middle of winter and so I was wrapped up in hat and gloves as I headed up towards the peaks. As I got to the top of the first climb I was being buffetted all over the place and as I didn't have my head torch on I thought it prudent to head back down again. anyway, 8.4 miles later and I had finished. I was still feeling quite good and could have carried on if I had to. This is the first time in months that I've been out on a run and not felt completely exhausted at the end of it. Hopefully, my body is close to being recovered and also it is adapting to my new way of eating. I've also started taking Omega 369 and Magnesium supplements to help. Things are looking better at last.
I was considering Worksop at the weekend but I'm still not anywhere near in the right condition. Recovering from Long Tour of Bradwell in August is taking longer than I thought and the change to a high fat low carb diet is leaving me weak when running. My body is slowly adapting and I managed 8 miles last night which is the furthest I've run in ages. Might look to Clowne in a few weeks if I'm feeling any better
8.5 miles in what felt like wintery conditions last night. Headed up towards the Peak District where it was blowing an absolute howler. The best run I've had in months though as the legs kept going over the undulating route and when I finished I didn't feel like death. Progress at last
