It has felt like a 1000 years waiting for my ankle to be strong enough to handle a decent run.
Thursday morning I gave my ankle a G-O with a Speed Session! 6 x 500 metre runs separated with a standing 1 minute rest. Averaging 2 minutes and 30 seconds for each 500 metres. Ankle felt strong! Asthma played up with huffing and puffing in between sets. My heart rate was going a bit wild.
A Friday morning session was on the cards next, 30 minutes of comfortable running. I’ve been reading a triathlon training book I downloaded from the Kindle store recently and decided to take advantage of this session to test out its suggestions for warm ups, stretches and warm downs. Began with a very slow 10 minute jog, stretched, dashing into the 30 minute session, completing 5 km, with a slow warm down jog/walk home.
Sunday was my Ghetto Superstar moment! Another warm up session with stretches on the grass at the Southbank Parklands. I set off to complete the 60 minute run session. At the 58 minute mark I had completed 10 km!! 3 minutes off my last attempt! My goal of achieving 55 minutes at the Gold Coast is looking very achievable!
