Today, it’s Wednesday.

I did my run in a bit over 33 mins (according to the little taggy thing around my ankle), and I did walk more than I should’ve. However, it’s been a long time since I’ve run a timed 5k, and would you believe some bastard even put hills in there? Sure they weren’t real big, but they were a bit nasty.  I ran up them too – and you have to run down hills, cos it’s money for shit!

So, to recap: I ran it. It wasn’t fast, and it wasn’t flash, but I ran it.The first is the hardest – next week is a cross country, and there is the word ‘Beach’ in the title. I’m not so keen on that bit.

Memo to me: Drink more water. Load up before the race. Always have a full bottle in the car.

Two objectives down for this week… one more to go. That’s the swim. And I still have a few days left, so I’ll not stress.

Tomorrow is squash in the afternoon. Friday I don’t have a damn clue – that may in fact be my opportunistic swimming day? Saturday is my #run4ChCh and I am hoping to be lucky enough to have two others with me. I am aiming for 10k in 1hr… we’ll see how we go… and then I will donate $5 for each kilometre to the Red Cross. I know it’s not much, but every little bit helps… doesn’t it??After that, it’s brunch. I’m looking forward to it.

Next big ticket on the menu is a 10k cross country on 16 April. Meh, it’s a Saturday – I’m going to give it a shot. Then I’m going to get drunk. hehe

Today is also day 8 of doing some sort of physical activity every day. And if I can do the sprints on the weekend, it will be the third weekend in a row. I’m kinda sorted feeling a little inspired, just cos I can be.

Now that I look…

I think I probably can do it after all.

The ‘It’ I’m referring to, is to run 5k after a hard day at the office. I was just looking at the results from the running club, and there are people who do 5k in 40 minutes. Yeah, alright – so they’re walking, whoopee do. 40 mins is 40 mins.

I can do that.
