Struggling Through Another Week

Monday' Run 4.30pm
Distance: 11.15km
Calories: 670

I left work early as I knewI couldn't stay to the end of training tonight as I had babysitting duties. I managed to arrive in time for the early run at 4.30pm which was an easy run before the proper training session. It was a good warm-up with Ewen, speedygeoff and Jenny from Sydney. We then met up with the others at 5.30pm and ran another warm-up loop before heading for the back of PH where we were divided into teams to run 10 x 350m with easy runs between. I left early so didn't complete the session. however, I was pleased to fit in a bit more distance by arriving early.

I looked after the grandchildren all night and today which limited me obviously with running. However Mr B volunteered to go to work late so that I could go for a short run at 8.30am.

Distance: 8.17km
Time taken: 45:24
Average pace per km: 5:33
Calories burned: 473

I so need some more time to run longer distances. I am way behind schedule with marathon training.


  1. Take a deep breath and say after me. It's only the last eight weeks that counts. It's only the last eight weeks that counts.

    You will feel better soon.

  2. Wondered where you were yesterday - it was such an easy run too :)

    I'm planning another 30 Saturday. If the forecast is cool, I may start at 7am rather than 6.30.

  3. Take a deep breath and say after me: "it's only the last 195 metres that counts......"
