Cross-training #2....Easy Running.
Since I won't be training tomorrow - Australia Day and out to an all-day lunch! - I'll have to miss this week's track session unless I can fit it in later in the week; not worried about missing it at this stage though.
Today, at 1:00pm when the temperature was 30 degrees (felt like 40) I drove to the school and ran in some shade on Radio Road alongside the soccer field. There was a breeze, but it was a hot one, and so was the day and so was the run...HOT! I took it very easy and it served as a few more kilometres on a hard surface.
Funny how I've become so used to running on the grass in bare feet! Shoes felt so heavy & sweaty by comparison. Something I'll have to get used to again no doubt; also running in heat because it's always hot by the time I finish a marathon or even a half marathon for that matter!
5km easy running.
