A little chillier than originally forecast this morning, and my hat was needed not for the rain that was falling as I got up but for the bright sunshine coming back down the hill.
I turned the heart rate alerts off, just running to feel rather than be buzzed at when I know it’s going to go over the desired zone going uphill. I went a little faster than intended, but mostly that was dodging people and puddles. I also allowed myself a bit of a blast over the last 50m just to prove that I could.
Home for some dry shoes and socks then back out for a 30 minute core class, which isn’t getting any easier, but hopefully it is doing me some good.
