Just back from a nice 10km non timed run.
Bumped in to my cousins wife who was out running before the sun was up.
On the home straight i put my watch on for 2 marked 500m sections,gave a bit extra for that felt a little more pushed at 4:30/km pace....
I guess i am still coming back from 6 ft
longest run since,before that it was 4.8km yesterday.
Have a club race tomorrow 8km road which i would have liked to do sub 32mins but not sure i am ready for that at the moment!!
Longer term i still have my old goals of sub 40 for 10km, 18:45 for 5km, 90mins for a half
I am thinking of my reverse taper post six foot my second last week pre marathon was 19km and last week was only 8km! Think i better get back into or all my training will wear off eventually.
Another run i am considering is 2 Penny's Hellgate gorge 48km fatass on 21st April some of my friends are doing it as are some of my running acquantainces,the only thing that makes me nervous is the unsupported nature,water situation and lack of mobile coverage in case of emergency.The topography of this run makes it tougher than sixfoot and it is a turn to the darkside.Actually i am excited as i write this so i have made my mind up!
"Hellfate" gorge it is!!
Ps the man in the mirror is smiling now.
