Another early morning start but wasn't as quick getting out of the door as Wednesday so only had time for a five-ish mile run. Decide on a trip down to Wheathampstead taking the Lea Valley Walk/Lower Luton Road out then looping anti-clockwise over the fields back.
The wind wasn't as strong as I had anticipated so was slower out and quicker back. The ground under foot was very wet/muddy from our 40 days of rain and there were plenty of times when I was more focused on staying upright than running at pace.
As I was heading down into Batford decided the workout hadn't been hard enough so threw in a bonus trip over Milford Hill.
Made it home for 7:05 which meant I was cutting it even finer than Wednesday - but worth it for the extra smug value.
