Sunny Running by the Tyne
I’ve said before that running on the flat is harder than uphill and way more than downhill (my favorite) but this morning’s training down by the Tyne at Bywell was glorious. The sun shining, the birds singing, dogs barking… You get the picture. When the weather is like this, cold mind you, the running seems all that easier even though the effort isn’t. We were trying to get the speed up and doing 2.5 mile stretches at 10k race pace inter-spersed with steady sub 9 min miles and the odd sprint. It still seems we’re catching up after the extended Christmas break. Yes I know it’s nearly March already but the break, the weather and just lately the job just hasn’t let me find the consistency I need.
