Another Hot One

Today Total: 4k
Week Total: 10k
Month Total: 68k
Year Total: 68k

Actually covered 7k today but as I only ran the first 4 that is all I'm counting in my log.

Went out at 1pm in the heat of the day - I was feeling all right as heat usually doesn't effect me unduly - but I had some tightness in my upper back that was also causing tightness across my chest - discretion played the better part of stupidity and I decided to walk the last 3k.

4k in circa 30mins

All good :)

More Gooderer

Today Total: 6k
Week Total: 6k
Month Total: 64k
Year Total: 64k

Ran a lot more today and considering this route has a few gentle hills and circa 1k of spongy grass I'm pretty happy with the run.

Weighed myself today and I've dropped precisely 4kgs since New Years Day - also pretty chuffed with that too.

6k in 43.16 @ 7.13av

All in all, I'd say it's all good :)

Due to other commitments today 4.00pm was my only slot for a run. It was 34 degrees when Mrs 2P dropped me at the corner of Kanangra Drv and the Old Pacific Highway.

I don't usually feel the heat but I did today - felt pretty wrung out by the time I got in.

6k in 44.48

All good :)

Instant Rests

Today Total: 9k
Week Total: 26k
Month Total: 46k
Year Total: 46k

I got to practice my instant rests today when I took a tumble on a bush track between Gwandalan and Summerland Point - I obviously needed tha practice because I took quite a bit of bark off - no real damage though.

9k around undulating bush tracks, a few back streets and the grassy lake front in 1.10. Pretty slow but done.

All good :)

5k around the undulating Gwandalan streets this evening finishing with 1.5k along the grassy foreshore of the lake.

5k in 37.27 so a bit slower than yesterdays pace but I guess some hills will do that to ya when you're unfit.

All good :)

A Bit Faster

Today Total: 6k
Week Total: 20k
Month Total: 20k
Year Total: 20k

Out and back around the bay with more running today.

6k in 46.50 so a bit better pace than the last couple of days.

Pretty amazed at how well I've been pulling up considering my couch potato ways through 2009 and that I'm at my heaviest - hit just on 107kg between Christmas and New Year.

Oh well it's all good :)

Yes Ewen the Twenty Tenties is going to be my decade :)

After a sweltering soaking mow the lawn recovery session this morning I rehydrated while the Sydney storms did their best.

Jammed for a couple of hours over some Blues backing tracks then headed out for a run/walk

Decided to push out some distance on the flat so headed out around the bay towards Canada Bay.

Plugged away for 10k in 84 minutes. 41/43 5k splits - happy with that.

Got back in just before the second storm front so good timing

All good :)
