Today was my first quick training session since my illness. It was going to be Otley AC's annual Christmas handicap near Timble in the beautiful Washburn Valley.
Unfortunately, due the very bad weather recently, it was cancelled yesterday morning.
So ... this afternoon I did a tempo run. Three miles at about half marathon pace on a course that still had a few icy patches. Fun.
Very surprised by my time which worked out at about 6:40 per mile. My target was somewhere between 6:37 and 6:45 per mile.
Further proof that I'm getting back to fitness ... rapidly.
