One of the usual 5k routes today. Time down a bit and HRavg down a bit. Dodged the rain.

CV5 today, numbering my return to running during what's going on. Chuffing cold - 3 when I got home but the sun was coming up and everything was crisp and quiet apart from when I took to the road to overtake someone walking and the runners coming the other way had to cross the road. That was all three people I saw in one go. Probably saw two moving cars and around 50 rabbits.... Now where are my snares

I've found a nice loop from home, 4km off-road, 2km on road. Running on rutted, hummocky ground is so much harder than the road - but oddly it doesn't bother my damaged hip as much as road running. Maybe it is the impact (although I run in super-cushioning Hokkas).

Been working from home for 3 weeks and have concluded my shoes have now done enough miles to warrant replacing for anything but speed work. Only 260 miles, but they are light - New Balance Zante Solas

The Inov-8 X-talon 190s are still fine

I’ve also managed a couple of point to point 10 milers by hitching a lift with Sue, who has had to travel to look after vulnerable Mim (87 yo). A nice quiet off road run.
