Saw a dolphin while out fro my run this morning - just up from the old Swan Brewery towards UWA. Only about 2-3 metres away from the river wall, just swimming along on the surface making the most of the sun and what was a nice cooling breeze - finally!!!!
Update on this week:
Monday - a much enjoyed rest day. Did a weigh in but no need to report it other than to say no change yet again. I am now an alcohol free zone. Have to do something to try and kick start some weight loss.
Tuesday AM - 8.48km recovery run in 46 minutes - on grass where possible. Oppressively hot and actually ran without a shirt on - steady girls!!
Tuesday PM - 6.62km recovery run in 34 minutes. Again it was pretty hot but there was bit of a sea breeze. Took both runs very easy.
Wednesday (today) - ran 23.37km. Did my UWA run but added a bit on around Matilda Bay to give me the extra 1.5km or so that I needed to get over 23km. 1hour 48 minutes which works out at 4 mins 37 secs per km which I am pretty happy with. Felt terrible after approx 30 mins of running and had to stop for a drink and took the one gel I had with me. Bit of a cold sweat and wobbly legs. The gel seemed to do the trick though and I didn't notice not having one later in the run so all worked out. Might have to consider eating something (powerbar perhaps) or taking a gel before a run if it happens again. Had a decent dinner of chicken and rice last night so shouldn't have been short on carbs.
Still working out what to do for the rest of the week. Scheduled for a recovery run tomorrow before a ladder interval session on Friday, recovery Saturday and 32km on Sunday. Complicating factor is Ben's triathlon on Sunday morning which will result in me running in the middle of the day which I don't fancy. If I move my long run to Saturday, I'm not sure if it is wise to follow an interval session with a 32km long run so maybe I will move my long run to Monday (then work out how to rijig that week). Hmm .......
