Wednesday night is normally Plums night. Not this week though. Well not fully anyway. Another email from the Plums, saying that Bexleyheath Sports Club had been in touch and said there was currently no hot water in the showers due to a technical fault. So cold showers all round! Therefore made the decision early on that afternoon that I was going to run from home. Made more sense really. I could run 10k, have some dinner and a shower and then jump on the bus down to the club for the monthly meeting. How's that for a man with limited brains, eh?
So, 10k it was. Fairly similar route to my Monday run but cut out the loop over at Eltham Park. Up Welling Way, straight down the A2 to Blackfen, past Bexley Grammar and into Danson Park, pretty much follow the Park Run 5k course around the park but then cut off the last 500m and head back up Danson Cresent to Welling Corner and home.
Was a good run. Felt reasonably good to be honest. I always find it hard to psych myself up to go for a run as soon as I get in the front door after work but it pays dividends sometimes. Comparing the performance to Monday's run, I was a fraction slower but hey, I'd had two days of rest before Monday's effort and I hadnt been at work all day. Little things like that make a difference.
Anyhow, I'm just pleased I seem to be getting some speed back in my legs after the last three months when the knee niggle was restricting everything I was doing. Not any longer and long may this freedom continue.
