This is what I tell myself being back from my ‘long run’ which I cut short, starring at my bloody knee. And no … I’m not cursing my knee, my knee is bleeding.
No nothing serious, just a scratch, but it ended my otherwise quite bad slog 40 minutes earlier than planned – better safe than sorry!
Not sure what was wrong, just one of those rare bad days I guess, but the only thing that got me out of the house was switching into my running gear and then it was too warm to stay inside …
The weather was great and the tide was perfect. I had a couple of moments when I did enjoy myself and as I got lost in my thoughts I hit an icy patch when crossing a wooden bridge … well … glad nothing serious happened. 50 minutes is better than nothing at all and you know what? My mood is terrific now, despite the bloody knee!
Oh and I forgot to mention the best thing: I actually managed a new lowest average heartrate of 138 for those 50 minutes. Times are changing!
