Bloody rain – I’m already staring at an enforced break from running tomorrow, because Chelle’s off to Sydney at 5:30am and back at 8:00pm. So I had a few choices:
- Run in torrential rain – I like the rain, but tonight was ridiculous
- Wait until it stops – 8:00pm still no let up
- Go to the gym, treadmill: Sorry I can’t (don’t want to) do 8k’s on a treadmill or intervals
- Go to gym, cycle class: I struggle with the lady that takes the class
- Have a beer!
All I really wanted to do was run a nice gentle 8km, but you’ve probably already guessed my choice – The second one is tasting better than the first!
At least one of the family ran today – Chelle. She had her first type of interval today – Run for 6mins at about 8kmph, then walk for 5mins then another 6mins at 8kmph. The run part equates to about 800m each (1.6km in total) so I set the Garmin at 800m intervals to assist her. Problem being she ran much faster than was required. 5:21 and 5:12 minutes per 800m instead of 6:00. Spot on pace for her Maribyrnong run.
