20 jan 2013 – born on a different cloud

felt confident and cocky this morning – headed to the gym just before 3, stated aim to do at least 21km on the treadmill, then see how much longer I could keep going – even possibly as far as 42…

was absolutely stuffed by 7km! wound up supplementing that with 7km on the bike and 7km row.

I did think about going around for a second round of 7-7-7 – but it soon became obvious that I had absolutely no energy LOL

half the “problem” was the fact I held 8km/h for pretty most of the 7km – a pace that would give a distance of 24km in 3 hours. when I did the 21km run before, it took 3 hours 2 minutes, so today’s pace was a step up. no surprise it drained me!

of course the other side of the equation is that those longer distances need to be built up to properly with a bit of planning. you can’t just think “well I had a couple of days rest, so I should be able to knock this one down without too much of a problem”.

as an aside – gym at 3am on a sunday – WTF?
