The dear wife, a very casual runner by background with a 55 min 10k PB, has been off for 10 months. Unconfirmed, but I suspect child birth has a minor part to play.
After Sunday’s mingling with HuRTS at Tommy H’s BBQ, Lorie decides to strap on the old New Balance marking her return to the running scene. A well planned dump of the baby with the folks and off we went around Artarmon Oval.
L set off at a lightning 6 min/km and I had to quell the enthusiasm.
Emotional see-saw – ill temper on the uphills, then happy days on the descent.
Back just shy of 4km and the forced smile suggests some level of enjoyment…
3.9km in 29 min at 7:25 min/km.
Pacing splits 6:54, 7:35, 7:23, 7:47. Good upside from here in my opinion.
Tuesday – Redleaf
Right achilles sore again but I’m not too fussed.
45 min fartlek was on the cards but I could have missed the cancellation memo…. completely deserted Stone Pillars when RWoo and I turned up. I figured its a case of squad cannibalisation due to Timmy’s alternate 7:30am 1.6km repeats at CP..
