Running glee

I ran to work on Monday (yesterday).  17 hours after I finished a really hard cyclo-cross race & I aced it.

OK it was just a flat run to work (except for the big downhill at the beginning) but it was 8.59 miles and I've only ever ran a long run faster twice - those runs were both at the height of my ironman training last year - at Pentre Halcyn in Wales and a run home from work where I tagged-on a jog in the Rivelin Valley once I got in (oh crazy days!)

The fact that I have achieved this makes me extremely happy but it comes at a cost to my legs which are now complaining bitterly of my neglect for their well-being.  I think I will need to go and consume a glass of medicinal red wine.
