The morning came around far too quickly after a hot unsettled night. Trouble was I had to do a 10km fartlek run this morning. So fortified with a strong black coffee I headed off at 5.30am into the dark (its starting to get lighter later these days). I hate the first couple of kms - it takes me a while to get into my stride and before that happens it just feels like hard work.
Initially it felt cool and refreshing to be outside but it was only cool compared to the hot house I had just left. It very quickly began to feel hot and humid. hard to believe its Canberra and not the tropics. There was a mad dash home part way through the run thanks to tummy problems but otherwise no problems. Another run done and dusted. No run tomorrow and a 26km run on Saturday.
Session: fartlek run
AHR: 140; MHR: 158
