Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Stop trusting your ears and listen to your eyes instead…

Tricky night. In bed around 10:30pm, took a while to finally fall asleep but then the rain woke me up…thought it must be around 3-push and if though it would be as good to go up…but no, the clock indicated 11:27pm… Disappointment! Back to sleep (easier said than done…) and then it was really time to go up…4:35am…10 minutes earlier than the clock. Still ok. Took half an hour to get ready and kind-of waking up. Had my new cool army blue tights on as well as compression socks for the still light sore calves. Massage pre-run with warmup chilli cream and rain jacket on before flying away 🙂
Soooo nice it was to run at a normal pace again. Tried not to be too excited about it though… Pretty easy pace under the city lights, light and refreshing wind. Great. If only I would have listened to my eyes and skipped the rain jacket…Too much rain had fallen during the night, impairing my ears (and judgement for clothes).

Did my rehab exercises after this early morning run and then enough time for breakfast (enjoyed 2 croissants and warm chocolate oat milk…yummy) and be at the office by 8 🙂

Lunch of veal with double portion of potato puree, drank a few tea mugs as usual and then it wad time to get back home again.
A bit tired it was as good to get directly out for intervals otherwise they would never be done… Dressed lighter than this morning and of course, got some rain at the end of the warm up and first two intervals. But ok. More drizzle, right 🙂 Have never done that many reps of 400s, not too easy, but really enjoyable (yes, it was enjoyable!). Cool down went in the streets around home to get a round figure 😉
Shower, protein drink and just had to wait for fish en papillotes and after cosy storytelling, it is now time for bed. Will be sleeping good I think!
