I decided to run the extra few miles to and from Elderslie Pool tonight. My legs weren’t feeling quite so heavy so I thought I’d be okay. I did run them very easily though and made sure I wasn’t the one pushing the pace on the Club Run.
The weather was pretty grotty with wind and rain but once you’re wet it doesn’t really matter too much. I made sure I stayed within the pack and ran with Neal then Stevie. A few of the group opted for a shorter run and it was left to Davie, Stevie, Billy and I to complete the full distance.
We ran the same route 2 weeks ago when I averaged 7.03 pace. Today was a more sensible 7.30 pace which I was pleased with. I also ran to and from the run to make a total of over 14miles.
