Hot and sultry all right, not me, the weather!! I ran 5km down at Princes Park tonight about 8pm and boy was it humid. When I finished I was sweating badly, especially my head and I didn’t even have my cap on. Not very ladylike at all. I was so glad I did it though, it is always a great feeling when you push through and finish 🙂
I don’t know if it is just me but I have to say, now that I have been using different tracks and doing a bit of street running, I have found that I always seem to struggle a bit on the Princes Park surface??? I don’t know if it is just a psychological thing or if it is in fact harder to run on. I would much rather run 4km at the The Tan than do 3km at Princes Park and having said that, I also like running on paved and bitumen surfaces even though I know those surfaces are harder on the legs. Its quite interesting really.
I entered the Sunset Series 8km Zoo Run today. I am really looking forward to this run as it sounds as though it will be quite nice. Today when I was at Carlton Baths putting in my entry, I spotted entry forms for “Race the Boat”. It’s a Fun Run to raise stroke awareness and to encourage people to get fit and healthy. I have nursed many a patient who have suffered from stroke and had to travel down the road of rehabilitation and lifestyle changes. Very sad and hard. I am going to think about doing the 10km run as it is a really worthy cause and I think it would be quite a fun one to do especially if you get your family on one of the river boats 🙂
