The last 2 weeks of the plan have been to run a 5k, a 10k and a 25k during the week.
So we headed off to Parkrun on Saturday for a short one, and I was feeling good. I thought I would push myself and see what I could do. The result was a happy PB and a full 96 secs off my previous best time. Another record on my Garmin.
|5k in 27:23, my fastest 5k|
Running Buddy had an idea for our first 25k run
|Altona to Williamstown 25km|
Fastest 5k and farthest run all in one weekend.
The second long run was my idea
|Keilor to Avondale Heights along the Maribyrnong River|
Similarly to last week, the out part of the course was full of chatter and observations of kangaroos and golf courses and the old munitions factory. There were less people out on this cold morning, just a few hardy souls with their dogs. The back part of the run was more like head down, cap low, music on and soldiering on in the rain over the undulating trail. By the time we got back to the car we were a few kms short of our goal so ran past until we hit the 25 km mark.
This week is a lighter week with just a 5k, 10, and another 10.5k to do. I'll also play 2 nights of tennis and do a cardio session on the courts. Then comes a week ending in a 30km run before we start to taper.
