London - 4 weeks

I had a good run this morning. I headed out from Park Road with Tigger. Tigger ran 25K at Mt Coot-tha yesterday so didn't need to run hills today. We ran out to Newstead, 14k where Tigger set off back again while I continued on for another 2k before turning back. I ran 32k at 5:01 pace.

3 weeks until the Vienna Half and 4 weeks until the London Marathon.

Hi everyone, sorry for my absence. Life has been a little hectic.

It was good to have my running buddy, Tigger, back on Sunday. I was not feeling the best due to having spent most of the day on Saturday in the toilet......painting and tiling. working in cramped conditions took their toll on my back and legs.

Our run didn't get off to the best start. Tigger had some shoe issues so we ran via her home to sort out her inner sole. We then decided to proceed though Chelmer and Yeronga but on the way passed a sign that warned that we would be haring the road with thousands of cyclists so we turned back and headed to St Lucia. At the University there were more warning signs. We decided to not cross the Green bridge and headed back to Park Road instead. At the traffic light controlled pedestrian crossing on Coronation Drive we had to yell at the cyclists, there were many celebrating bike week, to stop at the red light just so we could cross. The run was not quite 25K but that was enough.

London is less than 5 weeks away and Vienna Half (haven't upgraded) less than 4 weeks.
