During the week in August I am just enjoying the running in the sunshine. A little warmth makes the day very pleasant, even if we have to handle the cold early morning frosts.
August is my easy recovery month after a couple of months with an ultra or two. My boring running, low to mid teens in kilometre distance at a slow pace, are designed to keep the legs rolling over, enjoy the day when possible and miss a day or two if necessary.
September begins a serious return to proper training with plenty of events, short and long, on the plan until Christmas. Proper training includes that other stuff you need to do, speed, intervals, tempo, hills, etc. Can't wait, ha!
