I had a pretty crappy week after that and only did 2 x14K circuits.
This morning I met Tigger again at Park Road. We had discussed heading out out along the Western Freeway to Seventeen Mile Rocks but as we set out Tigger hatched a new plan. We turned of the bike path at Indoorooplilly and headed to UQ, across the Green bridge, through West End to Southbank. Tigger has been having trouble with her Achilles tendon and it was getting painful so she cut back to Park Road via the Victoria Bridge. I continued on to Kangaroo Point and Dockside and over the Story Bridge and back to Park Road. I completed 38K at an average pace of 5:26. I felt pretty awful but very happy to have completed 38K.
With an average pace of 5:26 for 38 at this point in my training for Canberra I am on track to run my slowest Canberra so far. This will be my 5th Canberra. My slowest being 5:27 in 2006. As I have said in a previous post, I really want to enjoy the run without dieing too badly over the last 5 or 7K.
You may be wondering what happened to the Yasso 800s. I simply haven't had the motivation to head back to the running track to do more. It's a great idea but I have to be feeling bit better and more motivated.
