Where do I start?

I have just realised I haven't blogged for a week. How on earth did that happen?? The last week has been a bit disjointed and didn't exactly go according to plan.

Friday 19 Oct - Run
Distance: 6km
Time taken: 35mins
Average pace per km: 5:50
Calories burned: 355
I just ran round the local block at 5.45am before work instead of going to the gym as I missed my run yesterday.

Sunday - Run
Distance: 14.3km
Time taken: 1hr 34mins
Average pace per km: 6:39
Calories burned: 818

Mr B and I went for a very hilly trail run around North Lyneham Ridge and O'Connor Ridge. It was hot, dusty and hilly but it felt very good especially after an excess of food yesterday as we had a bbq to celebrate youngest daughter's forthcoming birthday.Unfortunately I probably won't be able to go to attend the first track session at the AIS tomorrow as we'll be having a family dinner for same daughter's actual birthday.

Monday - gym - Fitball - abs
A very late night attending the presentation dinner of the Graduate Cooks' Awards - six courses of absolutely divine food with the appropriate wine to match each course! Needless to say I did not rise early for a gym session on Tuesday morning!

Wednesday (today) 6.15am - Gym - RPM/Cycle class
Tough, aerobic and a great session.

After work today - Run
I met Ewen and we spent the first 600m walking until my garmin found a satellite. Then we ran a similar run to last week. Again we saw tiny baby bunnies but only sighted 6 baby ducklings presumably to a different family from the 10 we saw last week. It had cooled down and there was plenty of cloud cover. In fact apart from a head wind in parts it was ideal conditions for a gentle longish run.
Distance: 16.62km
Time taken: 1hr 43mins
Average pace per km: 6:12
Calories burned: 990
It was a little slower than last week (perhaps we talked too much or perhaps it was the wind) but it was still a pleasant run. This time next week it should be much lighter at that time of day with daylight saving coming into effect. Thanks Ewen for yet another lovely run.


  1. Happy birthday same daughter!!

    Yes, you talked too much. How on earth did it take 1 hour 43 to relate all the gossip of the past week? :)

    Thanks, it was a good run - the lack of hills is perfect!

  2. Look out! Another week is flashing by. At least you post regularly!
