The changes were swapping my tempo run from Thursday to Tuesday and track on Thursday instead of Tuesday. That way, I had the easier session towards the end of the week, not the other way around. Just as importantly, I believe, was getting up at 5:30am, an hour earlier than I normally do, and thus giving myself time to wake up! This is dedication par excellence because I really, really, really love my warm and comfortable bed! Zzzzz! It's like a magnet that refuses to let go!
Outside, it was a bed lover's nightmare! Heavy fog made driving across to Bowral a real worry. Once there, one final step in preparation before the run started at 8:00am sharp : a 10 minute warm-up easy jog and a few strides .. all done ... ready to run! Forgot to turn off the Garmin at finish! The official result is ........
