Day 31 – Feeling Some Form

Before the run with GRC it was time to put in my usual four and a bit miles beforehand, although today it was a little closer to five as a few minutes into the run I realised I’d forgotten my hi vis top and running in pitch black country lanes doesn’t come recommended when you cannot be clearly seen. A quick turnaround to pick up the offending item and I back on my way, albeit running now a little faster to make up for lost time.

Once with the club and off running there was plenty of trainer talk, running styles and races entered in the upcoming months. The pace was mostly leisurely on the clockwise Sproxton circuit, but me and Ben up front picked up the pace on the uphill mile out of Sproxton itself, averaging 06:18 pace, and then on the run from Harlaxton down to Grantham on the A607 (fast becoming a favorite section of mine) I managed four fifths of a mile at 05:37 pace.

Those blasts out of the way it was a jog back to base, some more trainer talk and then running on back home. All in just shy of sixteen miles run in under two hours.
