Silly run today of 25.5miles in under 3hrs23. Mainly road with some miles of dirt track and fields. Knew it would be a long run but felt fine so kept extending it out. Herded some exotic looking geese down a road for a time before they flew over a hedge. I think they'd done a runner from a farm. Surprisingly my sense of direction did not totally let me down as I cut through a wood to intercept with some farm access roads. Passed through Marston Moor. Plenty of lambs, bunnies and pheasants scattered about. Saw a dead badger - they're bloody big things up close.
Good to hear from you DD. Hello RicF making a welcome visit, and MG2 on getting back running. Hello rest of the congregation.
Short barefoot run in my evoskins this evening. Under 4.7miles in under 46mins. Went through the train station which slowed things down. On the way back got shouted at "you can't run" - which is either genius, or the profound disconnect between someone's desire to shout and their ability to think of anything quickly enough.
Cal - I guess your weights work means the glutes don't get much rest. It was from gym work I'd put some strain on the gluteus. Not injured, just an achey tired arse.
A 20min incline run on the treadmill yesterday - lacks the majesty of the Welsh hills. Got a tiny pull in the left calf. Out today with calf sleeves and springy shoes. Gentle few miles to see how it went, then quickening up. 12.2miles in 1hr34. Seems to be something and nothing.
