Bed Time!

Yesterday, Tuesday, I went to an early morning session at the gym warming up with 1.5km on the treadmill and following this with free weights concentrating on the upper body.
Wednesday is the busiest day of my week. At 6.15am my RPM class starts and lasts 45mins before I head for the abs class which is 15mins. She truly gives us killer abs exercises - ouch! Then after work I meet Ewen for our middle distance run from the office to the lake following Esst Basin past Molonglo Beach and over the bridge before we turn and follow the track back the way we came.
It was very beautiful out there on the lake with the lights reflecting in the water after darkness set in. However, a lot of the pathways we run are unlit which means that there is a risk of losing your footing and we therefore ran with caution on the return journey. We chose to run much more slowly than last week partly to do with the darkness and partly to do with Ewen wishing to keep his heart rate down. For this run speed is not priority. As usual the company was enjoyable and in spite of the cold we saw lots of little bunny rabbits - in fact one group looked like they were having a party!

  1. Excuse me! Might be middle distance for you, but it's long distance for me!

    Esst Basin? Is that a new part of the lake?
