The days are drawing out at last and there was a beautiful sunrise this morning. First the sky was rippled with pink then it turned to a glowing amber.
There was a mist swirling up the horses field which looked very ethereal.
I love the lighter mornings and I've already started to get out of bed earlier.
Today I have to do just 4 miles at the pace I intend to run my marathons.
For the last 2 weeks I have run just over 50 miles each week and so now I'm taking what is referred to as a 'step-back' week where I reduce my mileage to allow my body to recover in readiness for the next hard week.
Rest and recovery are very important elements of any training regime and I feel as if I'm reaping the benefits.
