Today I cycled home from work (15km) in lieu of running this morning as my instep’s not right yet (where are my new trainers Wiggle.com???).
The running seems to have made a difference to my overall fitness because I overtook a girl WHILE GOING UP THE SPIRAL ONTO THE ANZAC BRIDGE. This is truly historic. True, I thought I was going to cark it on the bridge as my lungs were going to explode. And Neil didn’t help by shouting ‘she’s catching you up’ which played to my over-developed competitive instincts.
I also overtook 2 other people and got home in 45 minutes – I’ve never gone that fast.
when if I cycle home my face is bright red but tonight I was only a bit pink. That was a surprise as well.
Re my ‘injury’; Linda asked what I did when I got home from Saturday evening’s run. I said I sat down with a gin & tonic. She looked appalled – what no stretching??? Well, no not really. This may be my mistake.
Will see how the foot is tomorrow have a go at a jog in preparation for Sunday.
