This morning's run was to be 1hour 55 minutes (or a bit longer.....if I felt like it); it became just a little bit longer at 2 hours 2 minutes, & as Ewen says : "easy all the way" or "just talking to the cows".........
It was the perfect morning : clear skies, warm sun & a pleasant breeze; couldn't get a better day to be alive & doing a long run. I was thinking as I jogged along : how I wish the rest of the world was like this...seeing what I'm seeing, doing what I'm doing & feeling on top of the world! Sad that it's not so.
Distance = 16km total; Time = 2:02 (1:02 out & 1:00 back!) . Phew...just made it! Left at 9:00am & home for breakfast at 11:00a.m. Took a gel but didn't need it; 2 watering stations (tanks!) on the way out and back. Did a few stretches at Glenquarry before commencing the climb back up that huge hill ...HR monitor said 90% of max. here!
And now for the week ahead:
29 - 35 minutes 'easy'.
30 - 25 minutes 'easy'
31 - TIME TRIAL - 3km HARD! ("Go for a PB & try for a tailwind," he says!) Gulp! Grrrr!
1 - Rest Day...(about time!) First day of Spring...yippee!
2 - 55 minutes 'steady'....whatever that is!
3 - Rest Day or 20 minutes 'easy' (Well, I know which one that'll be!!)
4 - Long Run - 110 minutes finishing strongly! (Lucky if I finish at all!!)
