|Something and nothing on the ground|
It was far 'greener' to do a trip around the woods. The tarmac paths to the trails were slightly slippery and needed a little care but once 'off road' the grip was fine and not too muddy. A good combination. As it was short run I made a bit of effort to go faster and closer to what felt like 9/10 for a few sections and a good 8/10 for much of the trail. The overall pace was very modest, pulled down by caution on the pavement, but I did achieve a PB on a segment where I felt very comfortable. On this run this segment was about the 5km mark so I was well warmed up and perhaps ready for more; often I'm tired by this point with 20km under my belt!
