After yesterdays monster effort on the bike the legs were feeling pretty heavy today.  Thank goodness for a late start at work so didn’t have to run until after lunch.  Feeling confident from heading out in daylight for a change, I thought I would take the scenic route, it’s only a mile longer, so took it to 8 miles through Fallowfield loop and along Ashton Canal.  It was a slow but steady run at 8:30min/mile pace, a good 30 sec per minute off usual pace.  But its done and that’s the main thing, just like the quote I saw yesterday on facebook, No matter how slow you run, you are still lapping everyone on the couch!
