21 oct 2013 – imagine


fully intended to continue the daily journal through the weekend (something I never used to do) and i guess old habits kicked in, and it got forgotten.

so to summarise the weekend: saturday i got a reasonable amount of walking in, did abs and the sun salutation routine. sunday i went for a 17km run with a few other “rogues”, a run that included going up a very big hill (and down again).

i also slept a bit sunday afternoon, though overall the run went really well, with no out-of-the-ordinary soreness to report today!

it seems i may be starting to like hills a little more šŸ™‚

so, on to today… i woke a little later than usual, and so had limited time available. i decided to simply do a slow easy-pace recovery run of about half an hour duration. the abs and push-ups for the day were left for later in the day.

noticed that the sun is up by the time i get into perth now, so might start doing the riverside walk in the morning just to help increase the distance covered on two legs a little more – I’m going to have to get used to doing a LOT of distance on two legs šŸ™‚
