I've had a rough couple of weeks running wise...I'd be fibbing if I said it was anything so glamorous as being overtrained, I think it was more just an attack of the lazies, a cloud of demotivation. I even skipped my long run last weekend *hangs head in shame*
Soo, this week I've made a concerted effort to get out there, and I'm pleased with how it's gone so far. 6.8 on Tuesday morning, 6.2 today, and I'm hoping for 22-23 on Sunday's long run. I'm particularly pleased at having gained some consistency during a week that has involved some seriously cold weather, so cold that people have been saying things lik "It's cold...even for Melbourne!"
The Run Melbourne HM is....five and a half weeks away, so I'm both on track and not on track. I can do the distance, not with any sort of speed but, well, I'm not that kind of runner anyway.
