AAA triathlon March 19th (sprint)- stretch the legs and have fun. HIM Bussleton May 01- around 6 hours would be awesome, but as close to it as possible I'll accept. Under 2 hours official HM time (have not completed the distance in a while and is a mental ache). Hopefully be thinking of a full IM in the next year or two
I read your message just before I went out LMH and actually had an amazing run. I think I found THE pace. I listened to relaxing music and had to slow myself down at times, but overall it felt like I could go forever.
What: 7.7km in 41:24 mins
Why is it when you HAVE to cut a run short for work, you feel like you could go for longer!!
Why: At that stage of nights were anything but being horizontal is hard... getting sleep during the day but waking with headache and joint aches.
Lyrics: 'We're just a box of souviners'
Last Hard: 3 more night shifts to go....
Thanks for the well wishes. Alex was pretty realistic about his Grandfathers medical issues. But his Dad has had a rough ride (again the cruelty of Dementia). It is always difficult when grief is mixed with some relief. Very confusing emotions but extremely common. Alex will leave Tuesday and be gone a week or so.
Lighter note, I purchased some more nutrition online. I am hoping that next week will start the proper LSR's (attempts at least) with proper gels and nutrition to take. Then just manning up and getting over the mental block. I want to plod 21km at some point.. don't care about time.
What: Couple of non-serious km's to test some paces
Why: Need to run slower ro run faster
Last Hard: Hearing Alex's Grandfather passed away this morning
Came home this morning to the sad news. So took him out for breakfast and some extra cuddles before he went to work. Work have been very kind and given him a week off so that he can fly back for the funeral. I will stay and hold the fort, plus we can't do without a pay cheque coming in.
Dusted off the camelbak which I completely forgot I had. Did a few km's but the heart wasn't in it today. Will have a shower and do some stretching before work.
LMH- I will try my best to run slower.. maybe I am a little too excited about the form change and finding it's a quicker pace and the same effort.
Fingers crossed the cake is delicious (have I mentioned my sister is a pastry chef?!?).
