A nice day for a recovery run along usual tracks behind work. Nothing much to report, one blue tongue lizard also enjoying the warm day.
Stopped at the river for 12 minutes in the water to aid a couple of tired legs after a weekend of tough running. All seems Ok, must have been the massage last Friday that helped. Nice soft hands still found the couple of sore spots.
Last day of October today so the monthly running kms have jumped by big amounts since the low kms of the long holiday.
After Centennial Park in February, the monthly totals go like this:
March - 62.1 km
April - 165.45 km
May - 168.8 km
June - 105.55 km
July - 114.7 km
August - 176.5 km
Sept - 386.35 km
Oct - 472.0 km
It's only due to a good plan, a good recovery regime, experience & probably lots of luck that I don't have any injuries. Planned rest days are essential, but so is doing the hard yards as required by the coach.
A big November with a good run to Bulls Head & back on Saturday. A nice sunny warm day is forecast, should be fun. As always, looking forward to Vanities Crossing on the way back.
