What a crazy two weeks!
Week 5 brought the NewRun 10K, and while I was looking forward to getting out there and putting in a long run, turns out I had other plans. I had to sit out the week thanks to a nasty spider bite that not only didn’t heal, but actually got worse. What is incredible is the two weeks since being bitten I actually ran some of my best 5K times!
Luckily it wasn’t all bad news as I did hop on over to New Zealand during the week and made up for the not running with walking around.
Week 5 = 0 runs
The day of the NewRun 10K came quick and was taken by surprise by a hill at the beginning of the course and a storm halfway through. Complete run recap is here.
The weather certainly didn’t get much better from Sunday as the rain turned on and off.
Sunday – NewRun 10K
Monday – Rest day! Let those legs recover!
Tuesday – Volleyball, not a win this week 😦 (it was a real close one too!)
Wednesday – 5K run, super close to my PR. Decided to run during lunch. It was a humid day and I certainly battled with running at a completely different time of the day.
Thursday – Another volleyball game. Unfortunately it was another loss.
Friday – A slower 7K today than usual. This was an afternoon run as it had been raining all day. Felt absolutely amazing and really have noticed a difference in the way my legs feel as I run along. I think that I’ve hit the turning point!
Saturday – Rest day..
The goal certainly is to pick up the distance as I look to the Sri Chinmoy Sydney 7K on Easter Monday – running as part of the BibRave team! After that the next race is the Nike She Runs Sydney 10K at Centennial Park on May 3rd!
