Running Again......Badly

Today:
Distance: 13.0 km
Time: 76' 13"
Rate: 5' 52" per km
Weather: smokey, temp 21 degrees, humidity 45%, wind calm
Week: 38.7 km
March: 241.6 km
Year: 1072.0 km

When I don't mention any distance on the bike, it's because it is only a ride to work from home in the morning and home at night. I don't count any bike riding as training. To me it's a means of transport, an enjoyable way to travel. And cheap and free.
Today I tried running again, very slowly protecting a hammie and a sore heel. Both once warmed up were Ok, the slowness just from little running since SFT, and I suppose the tapering week before hand. No amount of bike riding will help regain the running fitness except plenty of running.
A short 12 minutes in the river on way back to work helped cool the legs, very nice.
Work tomorrow morning and a party to go to at night means no running until Sunday's monthly handicap at Stromlo Forest Park.
Certainly won't catch Strewth, probably won't catch any one, hopefully not to finish last.

  • Jeff Collins told me at the Summer Series this week we shouldn't count jogging when we add up our weekly distance. But if I did that I'd only log 100k a year.

  • Coming last has it's reward, especially in the handicap write up. The wooden spooner get's a paragraph/semtence/mention.
