So not a lot of training done this week, having to take a week off from any activity following the eye surgery. I was finally able to do some jogging on Saturday. Apparently jogging only needs a week but racing needs 2, not sure what the distinction is, so I went for a 8km jog following my usual route through Lloyd park up to Addington hills and back again. Pace was ok, I wasn’t going to push it so maintained a steady pace at about 6min per km.
Sundays run again was an easy paced run, but I had company with my brother joining me. He appears to have caught the running bug and has signed up for the Tough Mudder in May, a 12 mile assault course which has allsorts of obsticles, such as crawling through nettles and electric wires (sounds fun!!). It was going to be a shorter run, as I wasn’t sure how far he had covered so far but we ended up doing about 9.5km, which was good and he kept up with the pace and did really well, now all he has to do it run that again and avoid 10,000 volts 🙂
Training next week will consist of more running and a return to the gym (Greens keep emailing and texting me to see if I am ok, as I haven’t been in ages!)
I am still fundraising for the Special Care Unit, my Just Giving page is http://www.justgiving.com/AnthonyClark2012 or you can follow the link on my blog.
