A lot of main road running today, as I headed south-east along the Duke’s Highway. It’s a stretch of road I cycled three years ago with the Tour de Bois. It’s not the most inspiring road I’ve run on, but it’s always nice to re-live a day from the Tour.

The day began with a tailwind, which helped me to set a good pace for most of the day. It was still slow compared to what most runners run at, but it was quick by my recent standards. By late in the afternoon, the breeze had become a headwind, which I hope will not persist into tomorrow.

I finished with a solid 56 km, feeling fine, but still with some residual soreness in my quads. This should pass by tomorrow.
