Day 1 - A Fresh Start!
Back after 1 week in Sydney & no running at all in 2 weeks......what a long time 2 weeks seems! However, with Ewen back from the USA tomorrow morning ( Hurray!) & the C2S in 5 weeks, it's time to see if one leg will still go in front of the other.
Surprise! I was contacted by the Sydney Morning Herald today re an article & photo in a C2S magazine, published the week before the run.....they thought it would be interesting to have something on a "legendary runner"!!! Legendary = old, I think!
Anyhow, today's program was: 10 minutes warm-up & stretches.
45-65 minutes at 75-80% of MHR.
Record avg. pace per km & do slight neg. split.
Brisk walk warm-down.
What I did: 10 minutes slow jog & stretches.
50 minutes with HR @ avg. 85% of Max....(a bit high
for such a slow pace?)
Average pace per km = 8:18 mins.
Distance = 6km
No warm-down....... Trouble! Trouble!
Good for CB to be back again!
