Travelled 15km today…I say travelled because I walked pretty much the last 3.5km out of self preservation.  I didn’t take any hydration and it is going to be a 40°C day today.  No point in running myself into the ground, so I ended up going around the 15k at an average pace of 7min/km.  Oh, I long for the day when I am complaining that it is freezing in the morning rather than too hot.

A bit excited now, as I received confirmation that my new laptop is arriving on Monday.  Hopefully now I can get rid of this chunky desktop computer.

  1. Gotta love a nice new laptop!! Chuck the desktop! 🙂

  2. I know the 7:00/km pace very well. It’s OK, except it gives me time to start thinking ‘why is it taking me so long to get where I’m going’.

    Hey 15k is 15k – LSD runs are meant to be slow – well done mate.

  4. Long slow runs are my friend- you can keep your sprints or “tempo” and learn to embrace the slowness.

  5. Then come winter I’m sure we will all be complaining about how wet/cold/dark/foggy it is.

  6. just laughing at your bowls post – free beer is such a trap!
    You are a duffer not taking any hydration.
    BTW stop calling yourself slow – 7min/ km (and rising) is my NORMAL pace.
    have a great day

    I have been all too familiar with that pace for a long time now. I’m hoping that with winter will come an increase in speed, the heat saps your energy and makes everything feel like too much of an effort – partly why I have ditched my marathon plan – who the hell wants to do a 3.5hr training run in this heat???

    Stick with it mate – cooler days are coming. For now just run for enjoyment and don’t fret about pushing it hard
