I had a fantastic tempo run today, 16 min @ 5:17. I started the day with a banana, a big cup of coffee and was met with great weather when I went out the door. Just around 0 degrees Celsius but with no wind and lots of sun. I ran in 3/4 tights and a running jacket, but could probably have swapped the jacket for my craft west. Lots of other people out on the trails too, mostly walkers but I did see a couple of other runners. The weather also made me even more longing for spring, when the roads are not salted any more and I can ride both my motorcycle and my new bike.
I did not feel any pain at all today - none! The absence of pain is a fantastic feeling, I think I've become accustomed to all sorts of little pains and discomforts, so it was actually rather surprising when I had none at all. I think it proves that my decision to not race last weekend was the right one.
