exercise: street run including Edwardes Park Lake
5 minute brisk warm-up walk
5 minute cool-down walk
I walked out the door today with the attitude with “whatever happens”.This is the first run since my “early long run” last Friday at Albert Park which I might add, I pulled up fantastically the next day, no problems 😀 I had planned to run on Monday and Wednesday this week but due too feeling “yukko”, I didn’t actually venture out until today. I had to drag my sorry butt out I can tell you. I so didn’t want to go out but felt I needed to get at least one run in before Queen of Lake on Sunday and I was pretty sure it wasn’t going to happen tomorrow due to appointments and things.
So set off and only did a 5 minute warm-up as I felt as though I was going to turn around and go back home 😆 I made a pact with myself that I could do whatever I felt like doing and have no plan. It was quite windy and I ended up running for 24 minutes with maximum pace of 5:14min/km and average pace of 6:06min/km. I thought I was going to die today and my face was a nice shade of crimson when I finished. Remind me never to go out the door without a plan!! I was trying to slow down a bit today but for some reason I kept going back to faster pace. I was thinking to myself, it should probably be an easy run before QoL on Sunday 🙄
Speaking of Queen of Lake, I don’t feel very enthusiastic about doing this on Sunday and I think it is for a couple of reasons. The first one is I am scared I won’t be able to run 10km which is just stupid as I have done the distance before 😯 The second reason is although I have planned to just do an easy run for this event, I am scared if I get caught up in the hype and end up going for it, I will be too sore to resume training regime on Tuesday. It’s just all too stressful for me sometimes, ridiculous really when I know how much I love to run. I honestly think I just need to try and chill out sometimes and just turn the brain off 🙄
