Recovery run plus some race pace

Went out for 8.5km recovery run this morning. Threw in a half marathon pace kilometre on the way back and another 400m at half marathon pace a bit later. Glad I did the second one as the first one didn't feel that great. All up 43.35 with average HR 143. HR got up into the 160s when running race pace but dropped down quickly afterwards.

Saw Simon down near Coode St, looked like he was out for an easy run or just setting out for a long run.

Bit nervous about Darlington Half tomorrow. Have taken it pretty easy this week since interval session on Tuesday so no real excuses if I don't go well tomorrow. Vaseline and one band aid on blister this morning worked well and didn't feel a thing (wore my oldest 2130s, the ones that I ran Perth Marathon in).
