Last night was long run night, a nice easy 16 km. Well nice and easy for me. Simon bitched all the way… which is a complete change since normally I’m with one moaning about the aches and pains and niggles. We ran part of it along the Darebin creek. I’ve never been along there before, didn’t even know it existed, but it was really nice. Unfortunately, the rest of the run was on concrete which wasn’t nearly so nice. Up and around the back of Northlands then over to Plenty Rd and back home.
We managed to keep to a even running pace with no walk breaks except at the lights. The worst part of the run was heading back down High Street at the end – the smell of all that yummy food wafting out of shops. So after the run I decided I needed carbs and protein – ie. a burger from Dannys on St Georges Rd (the best burgers ever). It took my sister and I over an hour to get there though – after her week at chronic fatigue clinic and my run, we were like a couple of old, old arthritic nannas.
Still I’ve pulled up okay today but am planning a rest day. I might walk up to Kmart later to give the legs a stretch and buy some knitting needles.
