What: 1km swim (21mins), 7.7km run (41mins)

Why: pool opened and run cut short due to stomach "issues"

Last hard: ohh that run wasn't nice!

Lyrics: nope

LMH- His strength is to just push past barriers when he wants to, weakness is defo consistency. Doesn't take much for him to skip a training run.

Resting for the rest of the night. I had the IUD one week ago, have had on and off belly cramps since. Very unpleasant.

What: Recreational biking with Alex + sightseeing, Plus a mini brick of 3.3km (4:47 mins per/km).

Why: Trying to spend time with the OH when I come off nights and he goes onto them

Lyrics: Nope

Chick: Nah, no one really bothers. You just pat eachother on the back and carry on. There is always an atmosphere though, the consultant (if they're nice) will usually send you for a coffee break or give you a pep talk.

Don: Beautiful pictures!

Emz- Agreed on the nice prize

LMH- My BF Alex wants to train for an under 1hr30 HM. He is asking for advice but I have never run that fast in my life! he is over 6 foot and a rower.. not sure if he should do slow long miles or speed stuff... I struggle with my own training!!

Pool has opened near me now! Whoop! I will give it a go tomorrow and if I don't sink can get some swimming in. It is hitting the 30 deg mark here as well and they have opened the lake for swimming. I might try to incorporate some open water into the mix, wondering if it would be safe to swim in the lake by myself??

Just a pop in. I don't think I'll be running today. Had a bad night last night, my first case being SIDS of a 5 week old.. CPR was not successful. Then busy all night long.

I may go for a run if I can be bothered. 3 hours until it begins again.

What: 8km tempo, which turned into 4km 5:11km/hr and then I bonked.

Why: post nights number one which was SO busy!

Last Hard: getting out the door to run at all today

Last rest: 13/11

Horrible run. Deyydrated and exhausted. I did sleep well after my nights but its never the same type of rest. 4km was fine but the hiller back home route was a shocker.


Lyrics yesterday: 'Beautiful Boy' John Lennon

I hope everyone has a better day than me!
