So I ran into work today. This time I didn’t lap the campus, I headed straight to the gym to shower and change. To be honest it only takes a couple of minutes to run round, and takes the distance from just under, to just over 10k, so skipping it isn’t a biggie. Anyway, this morning I was feeling like I was struggling a bit.
When I got to the gym and stopped my watch, I realised why it felt tougher today, I’d run in in 45:45m! Now considering the lap of the campus takes 2 mins (3 max) that’s still a fair bit faster than last time, so the reason I’d felt like I was struggling slightly was due to the pace being faster, and had nothing at all to do with the bottle of wine I drank last night. (OK, it may have had a slight effect on this morning’s run).
So all in all, I’m happy, more than happy actually, with this morning’s run.
