Long slow run

Perfect day for running

Perfect day for running

It was a perfect morning for running. The skies were blue. The air crisp but not cold. Pockets of fog hung in the low lying paddocks I ran past. A friendly dog came to greet me for a pat and a sociable horse neighed gently to greet me.

The 19km was the farthest I’ve run in a single session since the City to Surf Marathon in August last year. I felt strong and fairly comfortable the whole time. I think the long 2XU compression pants I bought for $15 last night (marked down from $179.95 – yes, you read that correctly) helped a lot with keeping my legs comfortable.

The run was fantastic and now I’m looking forward to the next one.
