Last day of week 1 called for a 15k relaxed run. Andrew and I were to give Gellibrand Hill a go until Andrew had to cancel.
So instead of my run this morning, I took the boys to swimming and decided to do my run in the afternoon so I can get used to running in some heat., after all not many races are conducted at 6:00am – unfortunately!
The boys wanted to go to the park so they dropped me off at the Maribyrnong river, did a spot of shopping and met me back near where I started. It was a balmy 20c and overcast without any breeze so I planned to have short walk breaks every 2.5k.
This was a new route for me and I was surprised at some of the stunning views and houses that line the river as you near the Flemington Racecourse – I’ll certainly run the route again.
As mentioned earlier in the week; April was my third consecutive month of 100k or more. The scary thing is because of the half training plan, May ramps up to 178k – only another 163 to go!
