Tuesday


Thanks for the last responses. I've decided I was trying to push things too soon and I'm going to leave out the hill sessions till my legs are back to normal. So what if I'm a slow recoverer.

I will continue speed because speed is my favourite session. Actually it was today's session and went quite well considering I had only about 4 hours sleep last night. Why so little sleep? It's exam time for two of the boys and one, in particular, is a night owl and not the quietest person so that put bed time back a little. Then I was woken by an urgent bladder at 2 am. And then by an urgent dog's bladder at 3 am. Actually by the time I got to the dog the urgency had passed and I had trodden in it and it wasn't just his bladder so 3 am saw me mopping up the laundry floor after picking up all the solids. Oh yay!

Coach Chris had us do a 1k time trial followed by 400m reps today. I was happy with 4:09 for the time trial but even happier that I managed to maintain pace for the 400's within 3 secs. A consistent speed session is a good speed session. And even better - the rain held off until we were running back to our cars at the end.

So I'm off for a quick nap before I get stuck into my sewing - today's work is to make 14 Tweedledee and Tweedledum costumes. My work is never boring!

  1. I would rather work with what goes into the Tweedledum and Tweedledee costumes than do the sewing. Good thing we are all different.

  2. Oh no! "Accidents" in the middle of the night are the WORST!

  3. You made the right thing to leave out the hilly sessions. I know that the "accidents" always occur by night or during the week end.

  6. Boy, you are fast.
    I can't function if I don't get enough sleep. I get grumpy and keep bumping into furniture. I am sure I would not be able to saw. I can't saw when I am awake either. :)
