I am still really tired. Not sure what's wrong. Am taking allergy meds in case it's allergies, but they don't seem to do much and they obviously make you drowsy. I am sleeping well but struggling to wake up and have a sore throat when I do. My body feels tired too, my knees and legs have been achey earlier on in the week.
So hmm. Did I just get out of the habit and routine with Rob being here? Am I ill? Do I have allergies? My pulse is behaving entirely normally. Do I force the running and assume it's just that getting back into the habit toughness?

Yey! Had a pretty easygoing day in the lab playing with the mouseys and got home at a decent time. Decided to test how a run would feel, and the answer was pretty much great. Knees still a bit creaky up the steepest of hills, but otherwise flowing well and feeling strong again. I clearly just have to fight the morning lethargy and keep hydrating well. Yey! Two thirds of the way round I was running up a hill and walking down was a pitbull type dog out for a stroll, completely without owner. I was terrified and looking for a tree to climb but happily he just strolled past, almost giving me a nod on the way. I never saw an owner. Nice, ownerless killing machine out for a stroll in the woods. Scary.

A "recovery" run with nothing to recover from while I waited for my prescription to get sorted out. Felt crap actually, stiff with achy knees. I think I am going to do normal hill reps instead of more boundy ones. Not sure I am strong enough for boundy yet.
Hector Haines, you dancer! All that running over Ilkley Moor must finally have come in handy. Also, heads up for Tessa too - fantastic.

Had an excellent weekend of doing very little strenuous stuff, and by the time we made it back to Framingham my legs were itching to do something, so I went for a run round Callaghan before dinner. Lots of squirrels and the woods looking great. Seem to be back to feeling strong again.
