Track ~~~ Interrupted!

Warm-up just finished when school kids descended on the oval to train for their athletics carnival!  It made little difference to me really as there are still no lanes marked.  I moved to the area just inside the boundary fence while they used the centre for some heats.  A very nice morning at Chevalier College, Bowral :  sunny and no wind, the grass a bit rough but short and not too wet after the earlier fog.

My Program :
10-20 min warm-up....I did 10 min + strides
6 x 800m (90sec RI)
10 min cool-down....I did 5min + stretches

5:39;  5:40;  5:52;  6:03;  5:56;  5:41...ahead of VP for each repeat!

800m track

Long Run ~~~~~ with Leah.


Leah ran with me this morning...her first 'long' run!  Good company for me and we chatted out and back along Diamond Fields Road.  Beautiful morning, 10:00 start, jog/walk, no wind, sunny and warm....just perfect!

Today : 10km

Fitness Class : School ~~~~~

I missed C25k with Leah and Ross because I simply couldn't face any more windy runs after yesterday.  However, I made it to the Cross Fit Class this afternoon. 

Today was "Tens" ~~~~~  I got through most of these twice....excluding chin-ups!!

Early to Rise!

I'm never up before 7:00a.m.!  I was this morning though..... to join Leah and Ross at the school for C25K, Week3 Day 2 and it was lightly raining! They have to start early now, so I'll join them whenever I can, but without compromising my other 3 days of 5k program.  Whether or not I'll be able to add the Fitness Class as well is another question!

Today : 3.5km Jog/Walk

I did get to the school Fitness Class after all!  30 min.

Track ~~~~~

Cold, grey, bleak morning!  No sign of lanes at Chev. College oval so, once again, I ran along the rectangular markings of the football field.  Wore woollen cap, top and gloves for the entire session and was shivering by the time I cooled down, drove home and immediately downed a hot chocolate before a very hot shower!  The session was OK.

The Session:
10-20 min warm-up.....I did 1km + strides
10 x 400m (3:03 for 40 min 5k)
400m Recoveries...jogging
10 min cool-down....did about 500m + stretches.

10 x 400m
3:01;  3:01;  2:59;  3:01;  3:00;  2:59;  2:57;  2:55;  2:49;  2:45
