More on Running

Yesterday I went for a run at Princes Park, a nice easy one and managed 6 km. Then we decided to do another km to finish off and I wanted to see how fast I ran do 500 metres. The other day I said I didn’t think I could ever run a km in under 5 mins but I did 500 metres in 2.19 mins so who knows? I kinda shocked myself with that.

Tomorrow we’re doing a long run, trying to cover 15 kms before the Run for the Kids. We’re starting at Simon’s place then following the R4TK route to the domain and home again. Hopefully we’ll make it (but luckily we have public transport as a back up plan).

Yesterday I also worked out my running plan for the rest of the year. This is what I want to do:

April – Run for the Kids
July – Run to the G (10 km). I was thinking of doing the half marathon but I want to do the 10 km and focus on doing it faster rather than doing a longer event. I think that will be more fun.
August – City to Surf – fun and a holiday. Woohoo!
October – Melbourne Marathon, half marathon.

I think that is plenty to keep me interested and focused.
