Running Fast In The Groove!


Sat
I met up with Paul for a fast run over the big sand dunes.
The weather was a bit grim with a strong headwind on the way out!
I set the pace and quickly got into a groove which Paul said he found hard to match.
At last I seem to have got my power back, which kind of made each sand dune a blast!
With the wind on our backs for the final section I found it hard to resist opening up the guns and letting rip.
My legs did not disappoint, delivering some quite impressive speed, even if I say it myself!
Sorry if I made you suffer Paul, I was just on one of those good days where everything seems kind of easy!

You're going well Rick - pretty much back to your form prior to the good London Marathon. Have you got any big events coming up?
