This week my energy and strength finally bounced back a little bit. On Sunday I decided to challenge myself on my long run by taking the bus to Iron Cove. I then ran the 7km Bay Run followed by 5km back up Victoria Road to home. I did 3:1 run/walk the whole way. Tuesday was pouring rain all day, so I put my run off til the evening when it finally let up. It was still really humid and the first couple km’s were wearing a heavy backpack, so my speed wasn’t great. Wednesday I had a KILLER workout at Spudds that left me sore for two days after. (Felt awesome though.) Today I ran speed intervals up and down Wilson Street before work. Considering how crazy the weather’s been and how busy this time of year is, I’m really happy to be getting in the workouts.
Nov. 28: 12.69km
Nov. 30: 6.16km
Dec. 3: 6.05km
Total this week: 24.9km (15.5mi)
Total in 2010: 916.13km (572.5mi)
Only four weeks left in my goal to run 1000km in 2010! I have crossed the 900km mark and I’m still on track. I’ve got 4 weeks to do 84km, which means 21km a week. LET’S DO THIS.
