Like the weather, I felt cloudy and unspectacular which is a great thing!
All I wanted to do is to get out there and do my thing. Well you know … just get out there, switch off and let the work stress flow out of my system. I didn’t want pretty sights or marvelous sunrises, just undisrupted monotony.
And that is just what I did. The grass on the fields is perfect. I had not rained so there was no mud. There was no sun, so no other people, or at least I didn’t notice. I circled around for 1.5 hours and observing my pace and heartrate. It also got me thinking what a satisfying experience it is, to be able to run so easy for a time I couldn’t have believed to be capable of walking a year ago. I didn’t eat anything before and didn’t take any water with me. I guess I have adapted pretty well to the whole slowness and will continue, but play even more by feel. The speeding up in between at some runs when I feel great really helps my mind!
