Today was always going to be the hardest day of the year so far. I have never run on as many consecutive days as this before, and today’s 5km would be coming after a CubaTone class – an hour of high intensity cardio. Still, I walked down to the gym in my parkrun hoodie, then blasted the class (with extra bounce coming from my running shoes instead of the split-sole dance shoes I normally wear for Cuba Tone). The hoodie was tied around my waist for the run back home (the long way, using the railway path). It wasn’t fast, but I did overtake someone on a bike at one point, and it was 5km.
