So, I've got at least two people reading, so I need to keep this thing updated - it's also a good record for me!
Thursday - dragged myself out of bed at 7.00am (and dragged it was, I worked Tuesday night as well as my usual Wednesday and Thursday this week) and ran my 8km. Nice steady pace (50min if I remember rightly), just one of those, this is a chore but I've got to do it runs ;) I think what keeps me going on that Thursday run is the fact that I know Friday is a rest day, and for me a complete rest day! One of the other wee jobs I do is help my Dad with his delivering job, he has the contract to deliver a local power company's invoices each month - over the last couple of years he has been giving me more and more each month ... it's now probably more than a "wee" job! So Friday is the one day I say, rest day - but no biking either.
Anyway - Rest Day Friday.
Saturday - 5km - this was a good run, I had to get up early again because I knew I was out all day (I had a stand at the local parent/child expo). I felt like a runner when I ran this - 30:30, full minute slower than the other day, but I felt well paced, and in a good head space.
Today (Sunday) - 11km - slept in, at last! (okay, only until 7.30 - but I was asleep by 11.00 last night, and boy I needed it - maybe I should turn this blog into a how Lisa manages to fit sleep into her life? LOL). My stopwatch aka my cell phone turned off halfway through so I don't know how long I took (I hate it when that happens), but I think it was about 1hr10min, it was actually 11.3km so I think it was a good 6.15-6.20 pace which I think is just right for me at 8-12k distance :)
As for the rest of my day, I got home, showered, breakfasted and then raced off to watch Rhiannon's netball tournament. We've just got home and it's now about 4.30pm - its Fathers Day her in NZ today and I've been a slack wife in this department (not to mention a slack daughter - but I'll catch up with my Dad tomorrow when he drops off the deliveries). To at least be somewhat a good wife I need to dig out the steak we got given a while back out of the freezer and cook it up nicely for him for dinner, the kids will have sausages, I'll have eggs ... along with chips and some coleslaw - easy dinner, but he'll be happy!
I can't remember what I'm running this week, but its going to be a hard week, I think I need to squash it up a bit so I do my long run on Saturday, husband and I are going away for the weekend (two free nights in a nice hotel about 2hrs from us ... courtesy of the other big spotprize I won!), I'd quite like at least one day to just relax, so if I squash it up and do my long run while we're away on the Saturday, at least Sunday I can sleep in, enjoy the free breakfast and just relax.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a rest day, so no running, but I will be delivering which will probably be a 2-3hr bike ride - I'll be taking it easy though!
