Cool, very windy, cloudy here, but no rain. L35 coachee tells me she is sitting outside a pub in London in the warm sunshine (following a decent parkrun "win" this morning). Just like summer here (i.e. cool, cloudy etc).
What: 66 mins/11.5k 2/3rds off road, nice and easy after 2 hours cross training in the garden
Why: LS(aturday)R, and garden needs attention
Dibs: was thinking about your hips whilst running. Hope you don't mind! I always say that if both hips (ankles/calves/knees etc) ache equally then it is not an injury but a general lack of strength in the area. I get quite tender hips on longer runs, particularly on hilly parts: I just put it down to hip flexors that are not quite up to the job in hand, and the only "cure" is to run more longish slow runs to build up that strength.
And yes, I fancy Cape W (in part!) some time.
