It’s been a good, solid week of training, culminating in a 20-mile run which started at 6am and finished at parkrun. 20 miles in the bag before breakfast and a whole day cleared for OU study. My level of smug was at 10/10 and rose to 11/10 this lunchtime when I went out for a recovery run only to find that I didn’t feel as though I had anything to recover from.
Then I ran into a tree.
Current level of smug: -1/10
Did chocolate fix it?
You don’t notice canals, lakes, beautiful buildings or anything like that while running so how can you be expected to notice a tree (even if it might have been a beautiful one)?
