Dash dot dot

As promised, I ran into work again this morning.  Most of it felt like a hard fought plod, but at the end, I managed a short stretch that felt effortless.

I get a similar feeling at the end of most parkruns.  I work my way around, but at the end, as the finish comes into sight, I seem to relax as I head for the line.

So this evening, running home, I tried to capture that ‘relax for the line’ feeling and not worry about how far I had to go.  It sort of worked… though after a mile of speedy (for me) relaxed running, I was panting like a good ‘un and powerless to resist the lure of a train.

I then ran home from the station, trying to treat the full half mile in the same way.

So a 4 mile run, a mile run and a half mile run for me today.  Not spectacular, but it does bring me to 71 janathon miles, which beats my effort from last year.
