It’s Sunday AlreadyPosted: September 25, 2011
The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend.
Well another weekend flies by!
I started off Saturday morning with a 10k club run. Finished the run with a time of 40:55. Felt great throughout the run and managed to keep up with the guys for the first 7k. I dropped back for the next 2k and for the last 1k I decided to kick it a bit and see if I could at least have them in my sight. I finished 33secs behind the guys so I was extremely happy with this result.
Breakfast Post-Run: Green Tea, Yogurt, Banana & Apple & Cinnamon Muffin
Sunday’s Long Run was a 7am start. The weather was Grey but the rain held off till the very end of the run. For this run I decided to run with my dad’s running club. So the run mapped out for today was a 13.1k at 6mins per k. I stuck with the group for the first 1k then decided to pick up the pace. Two other guys were game to break away as well so I joined them and we increased the pace. Even though we ran at a faster pace it was still comfortable enough to hold a conversation! Overall awesome run and great company. I will definitely be doing my Sunday long runs with this group from now on. I’m glad I went 🙂
I spent Sunday Afternoon re-evaluating the events I will be competing in for the next 3 months. I’ve come to the decision that I will have to skip a few races. Less might have to be better at this stage. I think this will be best for me in the long run. After being pain free for about a week my left knee decided to be a pain after the run ugh! Looks like I will be taping it for tomorrow’s recovery run. This week I will be going through the whole process again of icing it after each run & heating packs before bed. I want to be ready for this coming Saturday’s 10k Club Handicap Race.
Sorry I don’t have photos of my weekend edibles but I wasn’t home all Saturday and for most of Sunday!
