Day 206: It’s good to be back?

Monday and with the great return to work it was business as usual, lots of cars on the road, no space in the car park and hundreds of people out running as part of their New Years resolutions. I’m hoping that all these new runners means I will be getting a few more people out to run with me over the next couple of months. Dd my three miles at lunchtime and even though I was plodding it the pace wasn’t too bad. Usual aches and pains! Have hit a bit of a milestone with over 700 miles now ran.

I went to British Military Fitness (BMF) tonight for the first time since I started this challenge. I’ve been thinking about for a long time now; I’ve missed it, I’ve lost some of my general conditioning and strength and I’m paying for it. I’ve been worried about getting injured so I just went I red bibs, the middle group, and took it easy. Wore my Asics Fuji Cross country trainers and they felt like bricks compared to my Nikes. Really enjoyed it but know my quads and hamstrings are going to be complaining tomorrow. Let’s see what the morning brings.
