Run date: Monday 18 July 2016
Set-off time: 6.35 am
Pace: 9.31 mins/mile
Total run time: 40 mins:45 secs
Distance: 4.3 miles
Terrain/landscape: Mostly flat, gentle undulation, tarmac, pavement, suburban
Weather conditions: Misty, sweat-inducing
The route: As before:
Music of choice: BBC 6 Music on the radio app, the early show with Chris Hawkins. Applies gentle musical pressure on a waking brain. Even when The Darkness made an appearance.
Fuel? None beforehand, a glug of water. Last night’s dinner was pretty good though: a 7-veg wholemeal fusili with marinated chicken and a dollop of pesto. Then a couple of Orkney thin oatcakes before bed. No sugar!
To sum up: A good Monday stint. A bit tired I think, but not much between this and Saturday’s trot.
What’s the plan now? Some foam-rolling tonight I think to iron out any niggles.
