A short run of 12m this morning; started out at 10:00am....a glorious Autumn day in the Southern Highlands. I didn't take watch or monitor again so that I could jog comfortably & enjoy the day; even so, 12kms was enough...how did I ever do those 40+ runs!!!....haven't got it in me now, that's for sure.
Between now & GC marathon, wherever possible, I'll run in the middle (warmest) part of the day so as to get some idea of how different the temperature here in July is from that on the GC in the same month. Hope it'll help!
Now I'm going to be talking to myself about the future!!
I know I'm always thinking, planning way too far ahead, but I like to have events, goals to look forward to over a 12 month period; usually it's been what I'll do between one Canberra marathon & the next! While I was out this morning I started to think : what are the next biggest events after GC marathon? Thinking of half marathons : Bankstown (the Hidden Half) in August? Blackmore's Half in September? Thredbo Half in November? All possibilities. At some stage later this year, I want to drive back to Canberra for a day & go over as much of the marathon course as I can get onto...more unfinished business with that one...will it ever end? Yes, it will! I will do it again next year! Unless, of course, I'm banned from the course, dead or have been kidnapped by the mafia! All, bar the middle of these, I think I can handle.
That's enough thinking aloud for today; a blog is such a good place to do this; putting thoughts into words does clarify things & unburdens the mind.
For the rest of this week, 3 days of training & might slip in 1 day with some deep water running followed by hot spa...I so love luxury; all Chickybabes do!
