This morning I went to Limestone Park in Ipwich and did some interval training with Chris Gale's group. I am so unfit. I came home, had a shower and some breakfast then slept for 2 hours. I was so stuffed.

I met my buddies at Park Road at 5:00 am. We ran a loop out to UQ, across the green bridge, over Highgate Hill, along Dornoch Terrace, around to and along Riverside Drive, my buddies cut off at the GoBetween Bridge and I continued onto the Victoria Bridge before heading back to Park Road. That gave me 18k at 5:38 pace, the whole of which was pain free. Maybe I will getaway without that cortisone jab after all.

I did an easier 14k out and back course today. It took me a while to settle into the run. I felt pretty good on the return journey. As I reached the crest of a long hard hill a couple who were out walking offered me some water. I must have looked like I needed it. I had my own water but stopped and had a quick chat.
I averaged 5:35 per k for the run and managed a 4:52 for the last k. Feeling good at the end of the run was a bonus.

In my injury free days I had a favourite 14k loop which I used to run up to 4 mornings per week. I would be upset if I didn't complete it in under 1H 10Min. I decided t have a go at it this morning. Gosh it was a hard run. It took me 1h 17min. That is 5:29 pace. I have a lot of work to do.
