Recovery run

5 Comments

I felt much better today and decided I needed to get some fresh air after 2 days indoors. Having slept over 12 hours last night, and missed parkrun, a little exercise would also be a good idea if I felt up to it.  I’d already missed 2 days of Janathon activity. It was windy so I discounted cycling,  being a bit woozy and cycling in strong winds was maybe not the best idea.  So  got my kit on and went off for a brief run or walk, or whatever my legs felt like.

I felt good and it became a run.  I  had to ease off reminding myself it was all about recovery, getting some fresh air and some blood pumping around my legs.  I think the wind pushing me uphill helped my pace and good feeling.  While running I was trying to remember when I last ran by myself. I have been to BMF and parkrun in the past few months and joined in with my local Sweatshop running group less recently, but when did I last get out the door and run alone?

I got home to research and discover that my last totally solo run was on 10th June and titled ‘first run since VLM! Today’s run was maybe a recovery in more ways than I thought.

Janathon day 10.   3 miles run

First solo run since Juneathon, first solo run of Janathon..

My  next goal for Janathon, a first run back at BMF run club or with sweatshop running group.
