Day 309 - going gets tough

Type - steady run

Distance - 7 miles

Time - 58 minutes 31 seconds

As the Malta Half-Marathon had shaken me into training harder, there was no way of avoiding getting back into the training regime. The 'short' runs are not so short anymore, and the prospect of heading out into the still frozen London night for a seven mile run didn't thrill.

But it had to be done.

I returned to running around Highbury for the first time in ages. I did a variation on the Highbury Loop, heading east through Stoke Newington, down around Clissold Park and down through Canonbury before heading back through Highbury and around the Emirates Stadium to home.

It was a decent enough run, properly paced and not too strenuous. The only annoyance was in not knowing it was a match night at the stadium, and trying to get through the crowds streaming out of Arsenal tube station along Gillespie Road.
