I didn’t plan a route, so I just played 'Cerca de ti'and let myself go. Starting with the known route to Burgess Park to warm up to end up there again after crossing London Bridge to the north and coming back south through Westminster Bridge.

Stepping over tourists, ignoring red lights, people with weird faces because it’s almost C°0 and I’m just wearing shorts and a sports bra.

There’s speed in the slow, there’s peace when you know how to pace yourself even when you don’t know what’s the next step.I knew I needed to do this slow. My knee has been hurting the whole week and I couldn’t stop thinking about the amount of time I was about to spend.
