Zipped down to the Tan this morning and was there around 9:15am. Looked around for RJ and then sent her a sms but she had slept in. She did run later with her boys but her hip is giving her grief and at this stage I don’t think she will be running at the MM 😦
I started warming up along Alexandra Ave side of the Tan and up the Anderson Street hill 😳 I then completed a lap and crossed over at the Morrell Bridge and ran along up to the Swan Street bridge and back along the Tan again. I completed 7km which I am happy about and the run felt mostly good 🙂 It was a tad slow though and I finished in 48:49 with max pace 5:47min/km and avg pace 6:58min/km. This did include two drink stops which I didn’t stop the clock for. Had a really good stretch on the Yarra River side and then headed home. I think if I can keep on track now I should be fine for the 10km at the MM although I know I won’t be breaking any records.
Andrew, I didn’t end up buying that Jeff Galloway book as it didn’t seem right for me at this stage. It was called “Testing Yourself”, I think. He has other titles that I would love to have a look at but that was the only title of his at Borders when I went. I have to say though the little book I bought, although simple, has some good info in it.
Extremely happy that the Cats won the foot-ball on Friday night. What a great game it was!! Although I am an avid Eagles supporter, I have a real soft spot for Geelong. I will definitely be barracking for them in the Grand-Final along with the rest of the state I am sure 😆
