run and swim

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, September 01, 2012 with 5 comments
This morning's -6.8 was the all time record coldest in Canberra for September.

It didn't stop Ginninderra Parkrun #19, 800am start, having 65 finishes. Jill ran 24.53, her second time under 25 minutes.

At Acton Ferry Terminal, 9:00am start, I was alone, and managed to run 8k. Here's the 8k course - to the toilet block at Acacia Inlet and back.

I feel like the injury is improving - after running 6:30 per km this morning, better than the 7:00+ of two weeks ago.

Then I met Barney at the AIS pool, and swam there for the third week in a row. It was an interval session; 20x50m on a set time, plus warm-up and cool-down.

I will keep the Saturday swims going, and when I can run longer, I will start running earlier.


  1. That's good news that your injury is improving. You will be back to normal in no time now.

  2. Thanks Strewthie. It's definitely better, I can now walk pain free.

  3. 6:30s? Luckylegs would have left you for dead in the 5k she raced this morning - 6:15s! And you're a long way from doing long runs with Lucia and Andy - 5:20s down to 5:10s yesterday - wish they'd slow down :(

    1. I am hoping to get down to 5:45s for the Melbourne Half Marathon.

    2. I'm hoping to get down to 4:44.3s for the Melbourne Half (Andy's marathon race pace).
