A Tired 10km.....
After yesterday's brisk walk, I got stuck into the garden again and remade an entire garden that was fast disappearing under grass. With pick, shovel & mattock, I hammered, dug & swung the pick for the best part of 5 hours and, I have to say I made a pretty good job of it too! Looking good now with flowering azaleas that I transferred from another garden where they weren't doing so well; camellia and lilac trees in bloom giving shade the azaleas need and replacing them with many bright orange clivia under the silver bark birch trees.
However, when I got up this morning and all day and even now at night I have the sorest butt ever known to woman! I guess this is from forcing the spade into the hard ground hundreds of times! Anyhow, I'm very pleased with the finished work and it looks a lot better than before. Very pretty, in fact!
But, back to training :
10km.....big struggle; just too tired! some long walk breaks; but I covered the distance and that's the best that can be said about today's session!
AHR 68%; MHR 83%.
Hot & windy day, but rain forecast for the entire weekend!
Today's distance 10km
