I am procrastinating about going out for a run so this post ought to clear that!I am a little tired from night shift but i postponed yesterday afternoons run until now.I havent missed a session in several weeks and things are progressing well.
I am running at least 5 and sometimes 6 days a week and i have even run twice in the one day!
Run for today 40 minutes easy @5:18 av. pace
I try to keep to this pace but its hard with the hilly terrain that i run on.I get a good guide from Garth Garmin though...
Ok im off!
40:36 mins covered 8km average pace 5:04/km....a little fast but still ok.
It can be tough to try to run slowly while still keeping a cadence of 180 steps per minute but i'm getting better at it.
Tomorrow i am running for my club at the state long course XC champs!
Can't wait for it this year,last year i came dead last in the open race and pretty much came near to last overall so an improvement should be on the cards.
I am planning on running the 3*4km laps as follows.
Lap 1 remaining in calm control and not going out too hard
Lap 2 cruise at tempo pace
Lap 3 pick it up a bit
All this will probably go out the window by tomorrow but at least i started with a plan :)
The hills in this run are so steep that a lot of runners walk up them and make time on those hardcore enough to want to run them!
More tomorrow,wish me the result i deserve.
