Thursday PM

46 days to go

10.5kms - 60min ~6min/kms

first 10k+ run in some time. i had to stop several times for traffic lights, which was nice. without anticipating what i'll feel like tomorrow, it's nice to know my legs still can do it. I was so happy I finished and bought beer! Counterproductive, but satisfying.

I'm preparing for a work sponsored fund raising run. My real goal is to finish. In my new work there's an Olympic and Commonwealth games marathon runner (read: 3.4min/kms, for 42.3kms... really. really. quick) and a masters middle distance runner who owns all the National age category records in 1500m and 3000m from 30 up to 50. Fortunately neither are running in this thing. :)

12km - 66min - watch was in the glovebox of my wife's car

quite happy after a four day rest that included a wedding (not sober) and 8 hours travelling by car stopping at as many greasy food places as possible.
