17 Sep 2012 – Transformation

Notes

Woke up this morning feeling pretty good, a few aches and stiffness from yesterday’s 10km fun run, but overall in pretty good shape; the post-run stretching, maintaining hydration and a good night’s sleep appear to have done their job.

Really nice bright, dry, sunny day today, so I headed to the bus with no coat or jacket, carrying just a small bag with the netbook. When we hit Perth, it was really nice to be able to get off at the far end of Adelaide Terrace and walk the final 3km to the office. It’s been a while since I did that riverside walk and it was thoroughly enjoyable; it also helped ease some stiffness in the leg muscles too.

Just had a look at the official results for the Freo Fun Run; my official time was 1 hour 14 minutes 41 seconds. Very happy with that!

Gym

No gym today, probably worth mentioning though that a couple of sessions are missing from the journal. In the lead-up to the fun run I put in a 30km row, which was achieved in 2 hours 45 minutes.

I did mostly rest for the 48 hours prior to the run though…
