I went for my first long run of my marathon training plan this morning. I’m feeling a bit worried about the fact that I’m still having a lot of muscle pain and it’s really slowing me down, but hopefully this should ease off over the next few runs. I’ll see how it goes over the next week.
I don’t usually run on Sundays (unless it’s a race) but I can understand why so many people do. Traffic is quiet and there’s lots of other runners about for solidarity. It was also a mild, sunny morning (it felt more like spring than winter), so it was quite pleasant apart from the muscles fighting me all the way!
Geth was out boardgaming at a tournament this afternoon, so I had some quiet time to myself before we went out for a meal this evening. The meal was a late birthday treat and involved us discovering an Italian restaurant we’d not been to before. I will definitely be going back, though, as there’s a lot I want to try on the menu.
