Friday – Bay Run
Decided for the 2nd week running to join the Running Science 6am group. To my surprise Tym turned up and is now able to run a full loop after what has been a disastrous 2016 (injury, injury and injury).
Legs loosened up nicely during the CCW loop of the Bay Run whilst chatting to the likes of Belinda, a new girl from Melb, Marty and Fletch. Before I knew it, the loop was up and that left me with an easy 5km over Anzac and into work.
14k done and dusted before work.
Lunch – with a 45 min window (literally), the best I could do was a quick jog with Sam Towill around Pyrmont. I hate 1pm meetings but I suppose that’s the downside of a jog. Judging by the HuRTS Whatsapp chat, I missed a cracking Redleaf swim opportunity.
Saturday – LPAC
Why my legs feel so sore I am not sure? Jogged over to LPAC with the objective to splash and kick until the soreness eases. That’s what I did. Achieved my target 2k, then ploughed on for another 20 min. Once you get into a routine, staring at that black line becomes strangely soothing.
3.0k in 62 min. Must be a new record. Always a bonus when I can give the legs a rest.
Long run tomorrow.
