Running (SR - West Leederville) 29:57 [3] 4.29 km (6:59 / km) +47m 6:37 / km
ahr:161 max:178 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Out for another run today - the course was a shortie which I was kind of happy about as I was in a pinch for time.

There was no easily picked optimal route - I think I did ok but still not sure. Controls were very close together so was getting them thick and fact.

A fair bit of walking from me because I was trying to test app and take it easier.

Was also surprised by the hilliness (but it wasn't bad). Fitness is appalling still! need to get doing something consistently again. Feeling a tad sore after.

Got to pat a lovely black and white cat down a laneway it was very appreciative of the pat with a welcoming meow.

Running (SR - West Perth) 27:35 [3] 4.28 km (6:27 / km) +54m 6:04 / km
ahr:171 max:180 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

A nice short one today - about 4.1-4.2km which was a welcomed surprise. Perfect length for a lunchtime jaunt - however traffic midweek might make this one a bit more challenging.

Made it 2.6km before having a short walk up a small rise - fitness very very slowly coming back as is speed - incremental gains there.

Small lapse in concentration had me miss a lane way. Lots of good nooks and crannies in west Perth! Actually a nice running area on the weekend - would love to see someone do it at speed.

Did some app testing - a bit of work still required there...

Running (Kings Park Score) 45:50 [3] 6.8 km (6:44 / km) +113m 6:13 / km
ahr:171 max:187 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Ok so it looked like it would be a nice day and it was so got out for a lunchtime run.

Decided to try out the KP score course this time. Also wanted to push myself a bit harder because need to get fitness back. I certainly went harder - but still an unacceptable amount of walking for my liking. That said significantly faster than my KP run last week so improvement on that non-existing fitness. Mentally need to push harder though - that will come but gosh a long way off 5min/km.

Ran a track I never had before between 25-33 (quite a nice track grassed, flat, nice scenery) also saw a bobtail on the track from lovekin to 27.

Lots of school kids up near the ponds doing all sorts of activities including orienteering.

Realized a bit too late that I had gone a bit far and was struggling speed wise so tried to get back as fast as possible - ended up a bit late so will lose 10 points for it.

Tight spots all over and 1 blister... welcome back to running after being sick for ages!

Running (SR - Kings Park Line) 41:46 [3] 5.65 km (7:24 / km) +73m 6:57 / km
ahr:167 max:185 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

A jog around the line course of kings park - first outing on suburb run since pneumonia so planned on not pushing it hard - but there was a fair amount of walking.

Had Dave join me so had a good catch up and chat along the way - but fitness was certainly putting my breathing and strength in the hurt locker so was certainly not an easy outing for me. got to restart somewhere though!

Course takes you down some closed tracks early which is a shame but after that it s nice.

Perfect day for it today best decision on how to spend my lunch break by far!

Now I just need to get some consistency back so that I can not die at 7 min 30s kms.
