A cold and frosty morning greeted me today on my return to running as I went round Temple Newsam parkrun with Helen. I wimped out of running to parkrun which was probably a good idea since although it was slow (for both of us), it still felt like relatively hard going! Since the parkrun was taken-over by Crossgates Harriers, there was cake afterwards so that was nice. When we got home I did complete my planned 8 miles by an easy out and back. This still felt hard and I’m hoping it’s because of the tail end of my cold – surely I can’t have lost that much fitness in two weeks!
That’s now a total of 11.5 miles for the month and a planned long run tomorrow. I won’t disclose how long that’s supposed to be, we’ll just see how far I get!
100 to do in Febuary can we do it? Yes we can!
