Could it be that the running bug has finally bitten again?
Made it out of bed at 6am despite an ordinary sleep to have a little jog along the river.
A bit on the dark side, but better get used to it.
Heart rate seems way lower than it has been in ages - does it take a while for the Garmin to wake up too?
Firs time I've felt chilly when starting to run in a loooong time.

Good ole 'recovery run' from my marathon training days in 2015. Felt pretty comfortable compared to last time I tried to do this.
Right knee was a bit grumpy. Will need to keep an eye on how it handles the combination of increased running and starting to ride again.

Trying to get the legs moving. Could really feel yesterdays ride in the quads. Not feeling very sprightly at all.

First Harriers race of (my) season. Pity the HR readings are total rubbish, I would have loved to know how badly I was dying.
Tried not to start too fast, but adrenaline is a wonderful / horrible thing and the first time I looked at my watch I found I had started at 3:30/km pace so desperately tried to find a rhythm that felt semi-sustainable.
Went thru the first km in 3:46 and just about gave up on the spot, as I knew that was way too quick, but then followed it with an identical 2nd km. Made it thru to 5km at a slightly more manageable speed, still faster than expected before physically and mentally giving up for the next couple of km. Managed to lift a little for the last km.
Significantly faster than I thought I'd be capable of, so I guess that's a postiive. Glad there was a kiddies water playground that was only 5m off course, and that the course was a two lapper - the two runs I took thru there either side of half way were much needed.
19:19 for 5km and 31:30 for 8. Will take that for now.

Calves were feeling a touch sore today, so rather than plough ahead with my regular stupidity, I opted for a different kind of stupid.
First bike ride that I can remember since June last year. First one outside anyways. Think it might take a while for the legs to get used to this again, seeing as I haven't done any semi-regular riding in 5 years.
A new bike would be nice, but I think regular riding might have to come fist...
EDIT: First outdoor ride on the Avanti since April 19 last year...
