I just finished a 8.696km running that lasted about 0hh:50mm:6ss !
I would generally have run this morning, but the weather was not great and I was still feeling the effects of my weekend long run. A few hours later it had dried up and I felt a bit better, so decided I could still do one. This might count as a recovery run , but I just go with what feels right. I was not aiming for any particular pace.
I set out of Arlesey along the cycle path that was mostly empty and then turned to take the wide track across the fields. I was thinking I would pick up the one that comes out at the top of Vaughan Road in Stotfold, but I went past that. I did not particularly want to go all the way to Astwick, so turned down what was just a tractor path between the open fiends to join the track I wanted originally. I do not think I have been that way before. This takes me all around the new Pixbrook Academy which has only just been completed.
I came back via Stotfold to join up with my outbound route. I took the shorter way home as I had already gone further than I intended. I had been thinking it would be about 7km, but it is no problem to go further. What is surprising is how consistent my pace was in the latter stages. I usually tend to speed up on the second half, but I think my legs are still tired and had had enough.
I had a shower and then lunch of toasted sandwiches. I will probably run again on Thursday, but will be watching the weather to try and avoid the worst of the rain.
