I was out on one of my favourite runs last night: over the downs near Baydon to The Ridgeway, west along The Ridgeway and back to my van over another part of the downs.
It was the first time I’d run since the Ridgeway 40 and my legs didn’t feel too sluggish. I really pushed the tempo, because I don’t want to lose too much speed as I do the endurance events over the summer.
It is exhilarating to run fairly fast and be able to maintain it for a decent period of time (about an hour in this case).
Let’s see what the weekend brings. I was supposed to be driving up north, and was going to do the Shining Tor fell race, but I’ve just heard that the job’s been cancelled! Ho hum.
