alright Clyde canal to Kilsyth and back 21.1 km 01:50 08:22 pace

started of not too bad this morning but I felt my legs were just not with me at all, heavy and sluggish feeling, although the route is a fairly flat tow path I just couldn't get my legs to open the pace, I'm so used to a trail cadence that's got a short stride I found it harder to take longer strides, I also had a bit of a strain building in my right glute at the last 5k, BUT, I beat my PB on this route which was 1.54, I was very surprised, :)

    Nice half PB James. What do you think was the reason for the heavy legs? Ps: Don't forget to roll out your butt cheek!

    @Tracy, Im not sure why I felt so bad this morning, I ate whole wheat waffles with chocolate spread an hour before run and had a carb/caffeine gel at the halfway point, but I just didn't seem to perform as I should have, rest day tomorrow and Physio app too

    Nice run James. Sorry you weren't feeling it but was happy to see that you managed a PB on this one despite the sluggish feelings. Sometimes that's when we dig deepest.
