I wasn't running very fast, but I was moving OK. As the kilometres passed, I felt better and better and was actually enjoying the run through the dark suburban streets with just a glimmer of light beginning to brighten the eastern skies. My heel got a little sorer, but was nowhere near as painful as it had been on the weekend runs. I finished feeling refreshed and glad that I had run. It's easy to justify a day off, and maybe it wouldn't have made any difference if I had missed the run, but I have seldom regretted forcing myself out the door. And I know I will be happier today for having done it.
