7 AM

warm up/down (walking) 8:00 [1]
shoes: black+blue

Really abridged and poor warm up - late and couldn't get going.
8 AM

Park Run (Greenway) 37:19 [4] 5.0 km (7:28 / km)
shoes: black+blue

With a poor warm up I was a bit skeptical but knew I'd done enough to make an improvement. Courtesy of a timing error I did a HUGE improvement - but I don't count parkrun timing, just my own... which was still a PB of a further 43 seconds. Shoes still very new and a bit painful so that counts them out for tomorrow.
S_T1 7:54
T1-T2 8:45
T2-T1 8:51
T1-T2 9:15
T2-F 2:33
All these were improvements on previous timings so i was pleased -and the noticeable headwind shows!
Now to get down to the time parkrun actually gave me!

Friday Feb 22 #

(rest day)

The only resting will be done before I get to Sydney. The almost 3 year old will be waiting - ready to pounce (or scuttle, or twirl or climb or splash or...)

Thursday Feb 21 #

9 AM

gym class (Body Pump) 1:00:00 [4]
shoes: white puma

Upped weights for shoulders - this will need to be monitored but happy.
Observation - churlish and unkind! I propose that those people who drop their weights thereby making a very loud noise are doing it so that others will look at them and "admire" the heavy weight... so inconsiderate and rude.

9 AM

gym class (Cross Trainer) 1:00:00 [4]
shoes: adidas

Only stepped back on squat jumps - don't like to do them the same day as a run.
6 PM

Street Series (Waratah) 43:51 [3] 4.53 km (9:41 / km)
shoes: grey/white

Went early, helped set up and do Rego. Avoided the showers of the day and lovely and cool... but the hills were still there.
Worked out a plan which was conservative to say the least. It's been a hilly 10 days with last week's event, Sunday training and a heavy legs session at the gym in the morning already under my belt. It was interesting to overhear others - runners!!- saying they didn't bother going to some controls because it was the last event of the season proper and why....
Macey's courses are always great and still the same with this one. Had thought to go to Braye Park control as it is the highest point of the map but wimped out. Planning changed throughout - adding a couple of controls but seeing Damien on course AGAIN during which we safely but very deliberately cross to the other side of the road (ritual greeting ceremony between us) I stuffed the next control and then pulled the timing tight to get an additional 2 pointer which may have resulted in losing 1 for being late (most likely, on checking time I think I wouldn't have lost it!) but I didn't feel like being late, and what's another 200m uphill after the week.
So ends another Summer Street Series - still love the format! Managed a full attendance so will await my reward next week at presentation - toblerone!

gym class (Body Pump) 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: adidas

Upped weight on Chest. No going back now.

Monday Feb 18 #

9 AM

gym class (Cross Trainer) 1:00:00 [4]
shoes: adidas

When Cory says it's been tough - I'm not going to argue. Did another 38 Box jumps but limited other high impact sections - with all the hill work lately and extra running I don't want to tempt fate.

Sunday Feb 17 #

8 AM

Club training (KEP) 39:35 [3]
shoes: grey/white

Skill today was route choice. Map is our hilliest Park. Activity could be done in pairs with conferencing on who would go which way or individuals could do the course as a course or do it twice with different route choice. I chose the solo option. Made only 1 mistake, not route choice, but a parallel path mistake. Chose to do contouring practice also. Turnout a little low due to MTBO.
