I can't believe it's only 4 sleeps left! An Easy Run at 6.15am.

Translate "easy" to "slow" run.

Distance: 7.56km
Time taken: 46:38
Average pace per km: 6:10 (yes, I said "slow")
Calories burned: 430

Comments: The session called for an easy 45min run and I took this as gospel. To start my legs felt very heavy. I wore arm warmers this morning as it was rather cool but the sun was coming out after the turnaround point. I ran past Giralang just before the tunnel heading for Gungahlin, turned and ran back home. It was light by 6.15am and I ran a little later than usual but it was good to be able to see! Tomorrow I have a 30min run, an easy 20mins on Saturday and then that's it before the big one! Today I drove out to the Runners' Shop at lunchtime and bought new Asics socks. Last night I stuck labels on my special drink bottles. I just have to write on them now!

Yoga this evening
Had to stay in the shoulder stand for ages. We had some trainee teachers present taking notes and assisting us in our poses. This meant we had a tough session. Those dog poses and long stretches can be quite nasty but of course the last ten minutes makes up for everything. Tomorrow I have a massage - bliss!


  1. If I'm near a drink station, I'll look for the my blog name drink bottle and hand it to you!

    What... no rest day!

  2. Good luck Strewth - I can't wait for the race report!

  3. I just read and can feel the energy, you sound so excited!!

    I keep thinking about your blog name in your cap, sounds like a great idea!

  4. If I don't have the chance to contct you closer to the 50k, let it be known that I am thinking of you (and the other important CR's) on Sunday and will be willing you on every inch of the way!

    Take care and stay healthy! I look forward to having a coffee on my return!

    Best wishes
