Easy running (Easay running) 47:13 [3] 7.0 mi (6:45 / mi)

Easy run

not a great start to the day, slippy under foot and hurt my hamstring slightly after the first mile, stretched a couple of times on the run and its not to bad, but can feel it slightly.

Feel a little discomfort at times behind the knee, but eases when stretching or rub it.

Ground was slippy this morning and by foot slipped backwards as I was try to cross a road, so decided to cut the run short and run very easy.

beehive, back loop of middlebrook, motorway bridge, a6, crown lane, crown and home.

hopefully something and nothing, but will keep rolling on the roller and using heat to sort it.
