Hey hey it's Saturday...well almost. This week was an "easy" running week (easy weeks involve a lot more running than they used to). So...so far I did the following:
Sunday - 21.1k
Wednesday - Rapaki (oh the pain)
Thursday - 45 mins Fartleks (you are going to have to be very creative to come up with a fartlek joke I haven't made yet).
And...tomorrow I shall run again before the next big kahuna Sunday - you are likely to hear about that next week.
Running lessons learnt this week:
An incredible sunrise makes it worth it:
Shin splints hurt
Ice and wrapping help a lot
Fartlek means "speed play", For playing it is not very fun...painful would be more the word.
It was a good running week. I feel rested and ready for a big one. I am greatly fearing the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic whilst simultaneously greatly looking forward to it.
In other news...
1) Got to go home from work 3 hours early yesterday because Lyttelton had no power...wohoo.
2) Took the day off today and went to hanmer...ahhhh goodness
3) I am going to try to make a dress out of a vintage pillow case for my niece's birthday...news on that shortly.
OH AND... I found the Amy Butler pattern I wanted...in Hanmer. So cool. Wai Ariki farm park... and she will even post them to you...
Leaving you...with great guilt at making you read about running.
