Janathon Day 10.
All this running is giving me time to think (yes, dangerous). On todays’ run it dawned on me that I always run my loops in an anti-clockwise direction. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are annoying little laps of 200 yards or big 6 mile loops, I just always go anti-clockwise! Now I’m going to have to run a bit longer tomorrow to ponder on that and work out why I have a predilection to turning left. Is it ingrained habit or a physical imbalance on my left side? However, having noticed this trend during todays run, I doubled back to loop the serpentine in a clockwise direction to no apparent detriment.
My knees were feeling sore today after running 9 days on the trot so I left my run until lunchtime to give my joints time to ‘warm up. I also went to Hyde Park so I could run much of the time on soft surfaces and have a change of scenery. They were niggling at first but after a couple of miles and I was fully warm I felt no discomfort at all and could have run further. Common sense made me call it a day just after 5K to keep things in tact for tomorrow and the next day…
