Back In Training

Hove SeafrontAfter yesterday evening’s running success, I decided to head to the seafront again this morning for an early session. It was cold, possibly a touch colder than last night, but the Autumn sunshine and bright blue sky really lifted my spirits. I had forgotten what it’s like to run in daylight!

As with last night, my RunKeeper app messed up, so I had to use my own judgement throughout the run. I had judged the distance slightly short yesterday, so made sure that I ran a little bit further today to make up a full 5K.

Even though it had only been thirteen hours since my last run, it felt pretty good. The pace was slightly faster, a little under 6:50 per kilometre, but it didn’t feel like I was pushing any harder. This is kind of what I’m going for at the moment – running the 5K distance while sticking to a slower pace that doesn’t aggravate my injury.

I have to be honest though, even with the ankle support, the Achilles did feel a bit weaker than usual after this morning’s run. Nothing to complain about, but not as good as I’d hoped, so I’ll have to find some other way of supporting it and reducing the impact.

It does feel good to be back in training though.
