'Easy' Week

determined to have an easy week this week.
didnt do anything until thursday.
had a few early work starts (7am) lately and was tired and (yet) really wound up by thursday.
really needed to get out on the trail...
started off and almost turned back at 200m as the right (good) knee just didnt feel right.
persisted and had a nice 2.5hr coot-tha/gap ck reserve run: the standard 'mr g torture test run' (long version).
niggles progressively settled over the week but wasnt going to run again until tomorrow.
but of course when tam and tam invited me for a little 3-4hr brisbane forest park trot this morning how could i say no?
started at bfp hq and covered the section adjacent to mt nebo rd to near mcafees lookout, down the 'hell hole break' along south boundary rd and back up to mt nebo rd trail via the 'unnamed track' inbetween centre road and the resevoir.
a nice run.
even nicer than coot-tha.
had a little nap this arvo :)
so much for the 'easy' week tho ;)

back to the biomechanical guy in a week or so (he will be my 'new' physio for a while) and he'll see if i've had any improvements.
need to start thinking about arrangements for melbourne half next weekend.
well mainly social arrangements rather than the race on sunday!
didnt realise until i got my race stuff yesterday that the trams dont run until after race start time so maybe i'll walk the 3km to/from the start.
can wear a thermal to the startline, wrap it around my waist for the race then head straight from the finish back to the hotel for shower and the airport.
sounds like a plan...

Shame you are heading off straight after the race. Hope we get to catch up. With a bit of luck they they won't be racist and we can all mingle at the start no matter what distance we are doing.

So how was Kokoda? :-)

If you ask me the socialising is the most important part of any event ;-)

Good luck on the weekend.
