I started with an upper body weights session in the gym followed by an interval session outdoors in the cold crisp morning air - beats the dreadmill any day. And today I rediscovered some of my speed with a sub-5min/km session. Woo hoo! Not that I felt that I was running any faster than usual - in fact I felt really uncoordinated. Still its a positive sign.

It is getting a lot chillier early in the mornings these days which means wearing layers for my runs - tights, short sleeved top, long sleeved top and when its really cold, arm warmers, headband and gloves. Its times like these that I think moving to Qld would be a far better option. Still, even though it was cold this morning, there was quite a few people out walking.

So, in summary, this week I passed the 1000km mark (thanks 2P for pointing that out!), have run every day for a total of 45.2km for the week, and have managed one sub-5min/km session. Not bad for someone who isn't training for anything!

Good luck to everyone running in the half marathon tomorrow morning. I'll be thinking of you as I'm enjoying my mother's day breakfast!

And happy mothers day to all the mums out there!

CJ, avete rinviato dall'esposizione della televisione circa eviction?
