Last week was not the best training week I have had. I didn't do my long run on Sunday. I drove up to Bundaberg on Saturday to visit my Mum. I hadn't been up for a while. My Mum will be 87 in May. She lives on her own and still drives her car. More often than not she is running errands for little old ladies who are in some case younger than her.
Since I had to do the return trip, a 4.5hr drive, on Sunday afternoon, I thought it wise to not do my run so that I would not be tired out before the drive. I didn't want to become another statistic. There are so many accidents caused by fatigue.
I did a 14K run this morning. The humidity is absolutely unbelievable. It took me at least 45 minutes to stop sweating afterwards. The humidity just seems to sap so much energy. It really knocks me around. I am looking forward to nice cool run in Canberra. It will probably be freezing. I hope Ewen can exert some influence over the weather conditions in Canberra. Although if tried last year, he failed miserably. I am counting on nice cool, perfect running weather.
