Since we missed out on our run yesterday, I met up with Simon tonight instead. It’s the first run we’ve had together since Apollo Bay (well apart from a mainly walk in Hobart) so it was good to catch up and talk our usual running gibberish.
I’ve been loosely following a program that was in Runner’s World mag this month for building your base fitness between training for events. Today’s run was 3 x 3min fast, 3 min slow. Too easy, it’s only 3 minutes, right? Ummm, no. Three minutes can be an awfully long time!
The worst bit was catching the tram home – I hate catching PT in running gear, esp since it was cold and I had to wear my leather jacket over the top. I don’t want ppl to think I dress like that on purpose! I’m totally opposed to wearing ‘training’ clothes as casual gear at the best of times – I might leave the house in my pjs but NEVER in trackys or runners unless I’m actually doing a workout.
I tried Jaykay’s advice and had a banana before my run – no feeling weak tonight, just good fatigue 😀
Oh yeah, and I had a run in with my housemate tonight. He called me a moron. Yes, I was called a moron by a person who enters the house via their bedroom window cos they are too stupid to know how to use a key!
Other than that, the new job is kinda boring. The work is on demand so has frequent slow periods. I was told today to fill in my time by surfing the net. You’d think that’d make me happy but it really worries me. I don’t handle boredom well. Tomorrow I’m taking my Japanese stuff so I can study.
ETA: I’ve booked my pretty room in Tokyo!
Yah! It was a harrowing process – the site wouldn’t translate then it wouldn’t accept my details. Apparently you can’t put more than 14 chars in the name field!!!! I didn’t have to pay though and that kinda worries me but I have a confirmation email.
