I had a bowl of ice-cream after dinner last night…mmmm…with chocolate topping. Didn’t go to bed until 10:30pm either…BAD SIMLIN!
On the brighter side I did manage to stumble out of bed at 5:30am and head off down an eerily pre-dawn lit trail. I did my 10k velodrome loop. I still haven’t got into a groove on this loop yet and find it quite difficult to just run it at an easy pace, all the way. Today started out well but by the time I was running up the hill behind the velodrome I was wishing I could stop and go back to bed. Yet by the time I got back to the trail I started to up the ante and pushed about 30sec/km harder over the last 3km. After cutting a few corners this time I only ended up travelling 9.8km, which is a lot more than if I has stayed in bed.
