how we trained
Monday at Parliament House was the start of our summer season training. After the usual warm-up jog, I got the group to run a fast kilometre, including three chin-ups on the way round the loop; then 30 sit-ups on the oval, six 200 meter runs with only 100m recoveries, then we did some starting practice, which was a lot of fun. Observation - if runners wear watches to time themselves, they lose a lot of time at the start! So my wise advise was to hand your watch to a friend before the start. Actually I can just see runners this season starting their garmins so they can analyse later how far around the track is and how much the elevation varies.
After eight days non-enforced non-running I could not move! something akin to sciatica was killing my lower right calf right from the start, even though I commenced at a very slow jog.
I was 90% better yesterday and a few more days of light running should see the pain subside.
next a 3000m
And so to track tomorrow. Aki, I do plan to step into the great unknown and run at interclub occasionally. I don't mind "pacing" a 5k there at your pace if you want to try it too.
not a dog
p.s. Today it was 21 degrees at 8am, a strong north/west wind, with real rain! This is not the Canberra I know.
