On Sunday I ran to Princes Park to meet Simon for a run, did a lap and came home. We’d planned 2 laps but my sciatic area felt sore so I cut it short. When I got home, I iced it straight away and it’s been fine since. I had to use a bag of frozen vegies for the icing though and didn’t want to waste them so made up a dish that I call Kathryn’s Arse Icin’ Chilli. It pretty much rocked.
Tonight I walked up to Fed Square from work, got changed then went over to the Tan to meet Simon (=2km). We did a warm up around the Yarra – half walking, half running (=2km). Simon said that the reason we walk so much when we run together is because I’m all slackness. I said I’m only slack when I’m with him so he’s the one letting the team down.
Anyway I showed him. I made us do hill running up Anderson Street. Ha! We ran up and down Anderson St 3 times (3 km) then up Anderson St and around the Tan (4 km). After running up Anderson St for the final time, I didn’t think I could ever run again… then realised if I stopped, I’d never start again so ended up running most of the lap of the Tan. Lordy, it’s so worth going to the Tan after work on a Wednesday. The eyes got as much of a workout as the legs!
All up, 11 kms with much hills and lots of heat – I showed Simon. But I think he got the last laugh. He dropped me off at North Richmond station to get the train home. I looked at that ramp leading up to the platform and nearly cried.
