Week 14 of 18
30km | LSD
I didn't sleep well last night. Way too muggy for mine. So when the alarm woke me at 5.00am the old snooze button got a workout a few times. I eventually got my act together and got out the door a little before 7.00am.
My plan was simple. Jump onto Anzac Parade and run until the road runs out, then turn around and run back. Add a lap of the park and go home and veg out.
Uncle Hal had me down for 22kms this week with the final big one next week of 32km. But I have been feeling a little under done of late (read: he's been bludging). So I decided to bump it up this week to 30km and 36 next week.
I ran with my fuel belt full of water and took two gels (Endura Vanilla. Best I've tasted. Hmm caffeine) to have at the one and two hour marks.
Nothing much to report. I just plodded it out. Arrived at La Perouse and had a little walk/drink break for about a minute and then ran back home.
On the way back I was joined by part time CR Mmad Al
and his Cool Lurker mate Gordon. Nice blokes (runners always are). Mmad stands for Malabar Mums and Dads. Al is running the famous Boston Marathon next month. Hope you have a great race Al !
I arrived home pretty trashed but feeling like I could go on with it, so I guess that's the main thing.
