Another longish run on Sunday in the new Inov8 X Talon 190s. Much of the deer park and woodland is still extremely soggy but it was great to be running in the sunshine for what feels like the first time in months – which it probably is, My legs are struggling a little with what is now my 39th run of the year. None of them have been over strenuous as my return to fitness continues however the total number is obviously beginning to take its toll. My hip flexors in particular are feeling the strain and I need to get back into the good routine of mobility exercises and stretching! A good 13.1 km run this morning and my enthusiasm is again restored – bring on the summer!
