Running (Tri long course) 1:30:00 [3] 16.0 km (5:38 / km)

Lake Bennett Tri Long Course run leg (Di swam and Bin did bike). I ran 16km! Without stopping! Yay:). Really enjoyed it. Was funny though, as had forgotten that the run was 3 laps, and instead thought I was doing 4 because I figured that each lap was 4, and that the 16k was composed of 4x4. All made perfect sense in my head! Plus that meant that the aid stations were all 1k apart, which also made perfect sense. Anyway, the laps were 5.333 each apparently, so when I got ready to do my 4th one Shae was congratulating me on a nice finish and I tried to argue that I had one to go and told her that I'd only done 3 laps and she said it was only 3 laps and to go around to the finish. So I had about 20m to do my sprint finish in :).

The psychology of this was all very interesting. Because the longest I knew I could do was only 8.5k, I expected the run to feel hard after half way, at 2 laps. And then I figured I could get through the last 2 laps by focussing on getting to the turn around on lap 3 and feeling good about reaching 10k, always a nice round number. Then I'd only have 6 to go, which is just over one park run really. So not that far. Plus I determined to spend each lap thinking about a particular topic, as a distraction technique. (in order, myself, My partner, my sister and my baby but didn't need to use them that much as things didn't feel all that tough. Saved Eleanor for the last lap, because I might really be feeling awful. Plus I didn't want to spring a leak thinking about her early on.) Anyway, as expected I started to feel rubbish going up to the end of the third lap, the 12k mark in my mind. Which didn't surprise me as that was about where I thought things would get tough. But, that was actually 16. So The 12k mark where I expected to feel crap was really long before that. So is feeling crap psychological? Partly?

walk 45:00 [1]

To Parap markets, then much later to Westralia St chemist and then home. Westralia St turned out not a cent cheaper than Parap chemist after all that, so should have just gone to that one when there. Spent some of morning in park with Kylee & Leeroy, quite nice.

To/from work.
6 PM

Running 20:00 [3]

Dripstone session, 10 or so mins on grass loop on cliff top plus about another 10 on sand, including 1, 2, 3, 1 mins on, 1 min off between. Legs felt quite stuffed, from riding hard to and from work I think. Have agreed to do 16km on Sunday as Bin's team has no runner for the run leg of the long course tri. Think it will be quite a challenge!
