Hello Grandma

Monday June 2, 2014 ( 3 weeks to Grandmas)

An insane week that has too much happening for my sugar deprived brain to handle. From calm seas to turbulence in all areas of my life except running.  Running happy has not been an outcome but running nevertheless. Running towards what until this week seemed like a lofty, overreaching goal. I knew for me to be confident in my ability I had to run a few strong, long runs on the road.

This week I can tick that off, Sunday I completed 30km in 3:18 over a tough hilly course.  Very pleased with how I felt during and after. Think I am also getting the energy supplement strategy for the race sorted and may try that on my last long run before I leave next week. One confidence boosting long road run and I think I can do it …now to get accommodation is my next challenge.

On Saturday I raced the NSW Athletics Cross Country 4*4km relays – ran the first 2km strongly then got a stitch and limped home for a slowish finishing time. Always surprises me how these short events can be so hard.

Thursday I got out  for a 2*5min intervals with 8*30sec hard hill sprints.  Should be adding to leg strength.
Wednesday – only managed 10km in the morning before the IVIG infusion.
Tuesday – Intervals at North Head followed by a fasting blood test.
