A rare afternoon run today. (I know, I know, I went for an afternoon run on Sunday…two, who would have thought), I don’t really like running in the afternoon, I all ready feel drained and the sun can be a little harsh. Regardless I was too tired for a morning run and don’t want to lose the training momentum I have built up so set out to run the 6k of Dry Creek West. As I thought, the pace from Monday was still programmed into the legs and no matter how much I told myself I was taking it easy the legs had other ideas and had me going at sub 6:30min/km. Not fast I know, but getting closer to my best training pace.
While out on today’s run and thinking about that stupid 8min/12min study that has been beaten up in the media lately, I thought “I haven’t done any cross training lately…it’s true, the bike has stayed rather stationary for a stationary bike and the pilates DVD is gathering dust…Why? I think it is a combination of work overload and still trying to settle into a stable training regime at the new location…I will start soon…might give that ridiculous 8min/12min thing a spin on the bike.
