01 Jul 2013 – D’You Know What I Mean?

ok, the journal was a little neglected at the end of last week; quite simply I didn’t have the opportunity to do much with it as I was attending a 2 day training course.

so I went for a run on Thursday – 4.78km in 34:22
rest day Friday
10.65km run on Saturday 1:23:14

and now we’ve rolled around to another Monday, the 1st day of another month, the first day of the second half of 2013…

I started my week/month/halfyear with an easy run in the chilly morning air. without music still, I’m really enjoying running without music, though I’ve yet to test that beyond 10km.

above all else though, there’s a sense of purpose that comes with noting the start of a cycle (week, month, half year) – a chance to draw a line in the sand, reflect on things, then move forward unburdened.

in my case it’s a case of putting the marathon behind me now I’ve seemingly fully recovered, and looking forward to training for Tough Mudder in October, taking in the Fremantle 10km fun run and Fremantle half marathon along the way.

The half marathon training starts in 2 weeks, and I will be using this schedule from running.about.com – the long run for week 2 will be the Freo fun run.
