The week beyond

I've been lax in blogging this week, despite feeling remarkably good. Perhaps I felt that I would jinx it if I said that "I feel good" and then collapse in a screaming heap.

However, it's Friday morning, and I'm confident that I pulled up very well from my first Marathon experience, and am actually healthier than I usually am.

Monday, Bob and I went down to the pool and spent time in the Spa and Steamroom for recovery. I went for an easy 60 minute walk in the afternoon and felt good.
Tuesday, more of the same with a more concerted, vigorous 6k walk on the hilly trails of Black Mountain.

Started running on Wednesday at the BBQ Stakes, cycling there and back. I went off an early handicap to chat with some friends, yet the pace was too slow for comfort, and I ran ahead. I was surprised that this 6k run was done so easily in 32:20 with no stiffness in the calves or quads.

Thursday was spent on the road bike, adding some hills in preparation for Newcastle. Through Coppins Crossing there and back, I cycled up Mt Stromlo three times, finding each repeat easier and quicker. The weather turned and I came home, however a 'good' 48k under the belt.

Friday, and it's Customs 5k Day! I shall go off my normal handicap and see how it goes. Weather is uninspiring, so no bike today.
