As the good days are infrequent, when I get them they are bliss. I'm talking about just being able to run slowly and for it to feel GOOD. It's also great to knock out a tough training session, but it's those easy runs that are truly easy that make running such a wonder. Post-lurgi and with unhappy muscles it was a pleasant surprise to have two consecutive good days. One was just a short little jog to get outside, the other a 'long' run on a cold, windy day.
A fabulous place to run
Saturday was cross country champs and as always, there were many inspiring performances. For me, just jogging 50 metres from the start to the registration desk hurt! A good thing I wasn't competing. However, when I got home I needed a jog. Yay, the hurting had stopped and a gentle 4km loop was just what the doctor ordered, it felt great. Sunday was a play it by ear run, no pressure, no expectations. Mulligans flat is my local trail running location, although it isn't really flat. I ended up managing a slow 13km along the perimeter fence. I did cheat pre-run and take a dose of P.
