Running long 2:53:00  23.04 km (7:31 / km) +844m 6:21 / km
shoes: Inov8 X Talon 212 coral
From home: - round the side of Low Fell, down to Loweswater, Burnbank, Gavel and Blake, then back.
Muchhhhh shorter than planned. Felt good when I set off but just seemed to totally seize up really quickly - after about 15km I had really lost oomph. Wind was so SO cold. Decided to just get out of it by going down to the lake (missing Starling Dodd and G. Borne) and thought I'd maybe just run round both so it would still be long... but by the time I got there even just running home seemed like a big challenge! Pottered back extremely slowly.
Very happy I came back as I was so extremely sure it was the right thing to do - but a bit annoying as I'd really wanted to do a huge run!!! Not sure why it felt so hard - have felt great this week and didn't even run yesterday!
