To fast slow down.

I went for 5 miler this afternoon. 5 MILES!!! I remember the days when this was a nice short distance for me now it’s quite an achievement and i suppose thats the beatuy of running. Its the gift that keeps on giving. Ha Ha no it’s not its frustrating and hard and that’s the true beauty of running. I made a conscious effort to go at a slow pace so I could just simply enjoy it. I post my runs on Strava which a few of my mates follow. They run themselves and because we are quite competitive stupid we tend to run to try to match each other’s pace. This is just making me fatigued so this has stopped now. Back to running for pleasure.
