After covering 54 km over the weekend, I should have done more after the oval tempo run on Sunday than just spent the afternoon on the couch watching the cricket. Got slack and paid the price today. A real struggle to get moving although the very warm day didn't help.
I knew what to do today, nice and easy, drink plenty, no speed required, and finishing in the water at Pine Is. Easier said than done as it took along while for the legs to get into any rhythm. Not many running at midday but plenty in the water trying to stay cool.
A few less kms than planned, but it was a late start. I hope to have a good run on Thursday night in the 10,000 metres at the track providing the temp is not too warm.
