There was no question that I wouldn’t run this morning, as per my training program. No, the question was whether I would run 10km or 8km, and in the end, I opted for the shorter run around the ‘burbs. Even better, I felt surprisingly good for most of the run. Surprising, because I did weights yesterday morning which focused on legs, and then an intervals session on the bike in the evening. I was sure that this morning’s run would be plodding affair but I was comfortable for most of the run, only tiring near the end. I do have a half marathon event this coming Sunday which should prove to be interesting given that on Saturday morning I will be cycling about 60km followed by a 4km run. Not exactly a taper! But the half marathon is only a training run for me so it’s no biggie and certainly nothing to stress about. Who knows, I may achieve my PW for this event and at this distance!
While I started this morning’s run in the dark, it was light by the time I finished, 46 minutes later. Spring is not too far away.
Tomorrow: the plan is to swim in the morning. This is different to what I normally do. Thursday morning is usually my second weights session for the week but as recognition that I do have a half marathon on Sunday, I’ve decided not to stress my muscles needlessly but instead do my Saturday swim session instead. Then I have another intervals session on the bike after work.
