An easy 5 miler.
With snow hitting the north east I was half expecting conditions to have deteriorated in Wharfedale as well by late morning but it failed to reach us and lovers of the outdoors enjoyed yet another beautiful winter morning with clear blue skies.
As long as the route was in an easterly direction; very pleasant!
But the journey turning back was another matter....bitterly cold.
A couple of icing sessions took a lot of the pain from my old legs; legs sore from Sunday's 10 mile race at just over 7 mins. pace. Legs which found 3 miles in 32 minutes on Monday somewhat of a challenge.
Today I managed a steady 6. Recovery continuing nicely. Ice is nice.
