Victoria Market as usual this morning, spent a bit of time looking for some of the ingredients from the Kiwi BBQ, ended up buying some Vinocotto and Persian Feta and are going to try and replicate the bruschetta – hope it’s as nice as it was the other night.
Went out for a run at about 5pm, and what a pleasant change for there to be a little bit of coolish breeze! After fading last night, I decided that the aim tonight had to be for some consistency. I had really tight calf muscles so decided I would allow myself some stretch breaks during the run, and I ended up taking four of them, and these 1-2 minute breaks are not included in the the time or splits, so I guess that makes me feel that I’ve cheated a bit, but anyway ended up with 9km in 41:23, splits of 4:39, 4:33, 4:24, 4:27, 4:47, 4:42, 4:33, 4:33 & 4:36. So, I guess I achieved the goal with a faster run, and good even splits, but there is no doubt that is a lot easier with a few little rest/stretch breaks.
As it is Saturday it is weigh-in day and as expected I had gained weight, but fortunately it was only 0.5kg, so considering I did no exercise 3 days out of 7 I was happy with that.
I have to take Kate to work at 6am tomorrow morning, so the plan is to hit the Tan for a run before the usual swim. Anyone want to bet on that, or me returning home to bed for an hour?
