Time to Load Up on the Carbs!

Yesterday there was quite a wind storm and it turned out to be a good day not to run. By this morning the wind had calmed down and the weather was much better. I left my run today until quite late in the afternoon and by then there was a bit of a head wind on my outward journey. I only had a 30min run scheduled with 6 x 100m strides after that.
Total distance: 6:06km
Time taken: 37mins
Average pace per km: 6:06
Calories burned: 358
I ran 15mins out from home then turned and ran 15mins back. After that I chose a nice flat piece of cycle track near home and ran 6 x 100m at a reasonable pace jogging back to the start each time. That's about all I can do now. I have a 20min run left to run and then it's 42.2km to face on Sunday! Now I have started carbo loading so it's countdown time!


  1. I saw you tonight just starting out on your short run. I honked the horn on the bus. Good luck on Sunday, see you out there.

  2. Enjoy the carbo load & good luck for Sunday. Unfortunately we aren't coming down for the race this year :-(
