Back on track tonight after a heavily compromised running week last week. My parents took us to Sun City for a few days and we did a few game drives where my wife is brilliant at spotting the animals. Back home last night but no time for a run. So 20km tonight at a decent easy pace although it was still 24C when I set off at 9pm.
We drove by the Parkrun course today and my 6yo son asked why I haven't taken him for a while. I told him it was because he doesn't run it all and walks some, so this weekend he tells me he will run it all.
Tremendous racing from PFJ, Jools, Badbark and GM. All of them individually brilliant runs.
Very bad training week last week for me. I've been putting a lot into everything - finish room in house for folks visit, move stuff from our flat to house, work, kids - so have lost sleep, nutrition and recovery. Previous weekends race then LSR have tipped me over the edge. Running in the week was slow and short. Tried to run 12miles at MP these weekend but counterproductive so stopped at 6 miles and ran hills instead and settled for 19 km instead of planned 26km. This week is another week - hopefully better
