Back to work. Back to training. 14 weeks until the next full marathon.
Training is gradually building and I'm still not back to previous fitness levels and try not to get too discouraged by slow progress.
|running the whole 5k, Karen behind stuck with me and got her PB|
Parkrun has been a good start. My first week back I just wanted to see how I went and had walk breaks. The following week my goal was to run the 5k without stopping and I'm happy to say each week has been a little faster. I've had loads of encouragement and have felt really well.
|Maribyrnong Parkrun and had to leave Hayley behind to run all the way|
|My shadow in the white managed to run the whole way too|
Track nights have been a bit tougher, not quite managing the whole work out but doing the best I can and reaching a little further each time.
I was asked to fill in for Ladies Mon night tennis and won the 2 sets but felt I wasn't playing to full capacity. Weekly sessions at Cardio Tennis will see an improvement there too. Last Friday we had a circuit that involved skipping and I'm happy to say no leakage occurred! A big step forward.
The first of our racing events was run this morning. It turned out to be a 34 degree day as we hit the trails for a 10k through Brimbank Park. I couldn't run the whole way and spent time walking up the steep hills that ring the valley and river.
|MCR girls rule!|
