So it’s dark now and off road running on a Tuesday evening is off. In it’s place is road running training, intervals and rat runs in and around Hexham.
After almost three weeks off, lazing in the sun or just skiving, tonight was a bit of a shock. Steep hills flat out, repeated intervals with bugger all rest and a weird masochistic streak that made me try and out run myself and all around me. Add to that coming down with a cold and thinking “this’ll kill or cure me” I’m certifiable but I have to work off the holiday excess somehow and there’s another race in a week or so!
