The Long and the Short of It!

This morning Mr B joined me on a longish run to shake off the cobwebs and get in some mileage. It was the first time I had been able to run since Thursday and I really noticed the difference not helped by a decidedly dodgy tummy. I had to stop four times to head for the loo, which was one reason why we decided to stay at the lake near the loo stops! Anyway we ran from home round Lake Ginninderra twice and back home. It was hot and I was uncomfortable most of the time but at least that's a few more kms done. Unfortunately I have had to miss two long hilly Saturday morning runs due to family circumstances so I do hope I can catch up. Next Saturday I will struggle on those hills!

Distance: 22km
Time taken: 2hours 9mins
Average pace per km: 5:52
Calories burned: 1270

Monday - speedygeoff's training at Parliament House
Warm up loop to start then main set as follows:

5 x 350m loops on 2:20; 4minute rest; 5 x 350m loops
Warm down loop of PH
Total distance: 8km
Calories burned: 800 (I don't know why I even mention the calories burned cos I always eat like one of the starving millions after one of these sessions).

It was 33degrees at 6pm when we were training and there was a smoky haze over Canberra from the fires at Kosiosko. It was very hot although we did run in a little bit of shade in parts but it still felt very hot and I have been drinking endless supplies of water ever since.

This morning I did manage to go the gym for a weights session before work. I found it difficult but I always enjoy the brekkie afterwards!


  1. That's clever, writing about Monday's training on Sunday.

    Good try at spelling Kosz.. Koscio.. the mountain, but no banana.


  2. I ate like the other one of the starving millions.

    We might have to do 10 laps of Duntroon if you don't get your tummy sorted by Saturday ;)
