Wednesday – Centennial
Quite sore in the glutes perhaps due to those big weekend hills. Headed out at lunch to Centennial along with Wooey, Champ, Elle, Renee and a few of the other Telstra guys. A very cookie cutter 13k recovery in mild conditions.
20k for the day with the benefit of a jog home.
Thursday – Pramming
Did not run in the AM which is very odd for me. Instead I did some long overdue cross training with the Kettlebell set and crapload of burpees. 30 min.
PM – so after achieving my true goal of a sub 230 marathon last April I’ve actually been pondering what the next step entails. If it’s not a sub 225 then the only other option is a Pram Marathon.
After some internet research I concluded that I simply must own the Phil & Teds Sub-4 running pram. No bells and whistles, just pure speed with zero every day practical use.
$1000 is not cheap but I figure you can’t put a price on quality dad time with Trinity. This was delivered last night from NZ and boy was I excited.
Course was USYD, Chippendale, Blackwattle then into Pyrmont before heading back to Lilyfield via Balmain Rd. Over the run my key thoughts were:
– Trinity clearly loves it giving me confidence she can survive 2hrs
– steering is hard, dodging pedestrians is annoying and I am really slow uphills
– Chris needs to stop being a tightarse and buy a house near the Bay Run such that I have a pram companion
Overall pace was 5.00s but I think with training I can improve fast. Got back having gifted Lorie 90 min alone time and banking a free 18k. Here are further photos.
