This morning I wrote I was feeling better but wouldn't run. Late this afternoon changed my mind and decided to get out. The whiskey had done the job and, as the km rate suggests, there may have been a few sideways steps as well as forward and backwards. Truth is there was a lot of walking, in a straight line.
No real problem with the lower back, however it was the "warmest" part of the day. A short loop run over to Tharwa Dr, up the hill to Calwell over and back home.
A few soccer players at the oval enjoying the afternoon sunshine, although a little windy.
I normally work a few hours on a Saturday night, but opted out this week with the 3 days off work, if you don't work Friday you can't work the weekend.
Just saw Tamsyn run the 800 metres, heaven knows what she is doing. The time just over 2:01 mins is OK, just not good enough at the Olympics. Why run the 400 metres this afternoon? The final of the men's 100 is on shortly, it should be a great race, world record maybe?
I will probably rest again tomorrow after watching the women's marathon in the morning. Then hopefully a slow return to normal running during the week.
