Continuing the good start to the week!

Tuesday 6.15am - Gym
Bodypump (including abs)

Tuesday 5.45pm - Run
Yay, I collected my repaired tyre after work and as the shop officially closed at 5pm I left work early. However, the lovely gentleman there obliged by changing my tyre for me ever so quickly with his super duper mechanical wheel brace and a jack that was just like a foot pump only bigger. How easy it looks with the right equipment! What's more I didn't even need a new tyre. They could mend the puncture even though I could see daylight through it where the glass had embedded - amazing - I was impressed! Anyway to cut a long story short I made it home while the sun was still out and could squeeze in a run.

I ran from home and past Giralang to the 4km turnaround point near the tunnel heading for Gungahlin and then returned home the same way. I don't particularly like cycle tracks but for some reason I was running quicker than usual probably because nature was telling me I needed to get back home quickly!

Distance: 7.9km (not sure why I was short-changed here - must have cut corners)
Time taken: 44.2mins
Average pace per km: 5:37
Calories burned: 455


  1. The good book a Runner's World called " Guide to Injury Prevention" published by Rodale and written by Dagny Scott Barrios. She is American and I think her husband won a big marathon, maybe New York or Boston a few years ago. It covers almost everything to do with staying out there running.

  2. That's good - much cheaper than a new tyre!

    Gandalf must have had a rest under one of the bridges ;)

    5.37 per km! Don't get too fast for me now, will you!
