1. Last night was hill repeat X 5. It was a good one though we had to work for every repeat last night. Usually I find the steeper part of the repeat easier but last night it was just tough. 12.4km of hills at a sub 7min/km pace…yes.please.
2. Apparently I went for the bright look last night:
Red/orange shoes and blue/green top. I gots the primary colours covered off apparently.
3. I stuck around again to help spot and encourage the rest of the group after my run. It wasn’t freezing but when you have already run and there is a breeze and you are right beside the cemetery, it was cold..and kind of creepy. I hung out looking all thugish with a big yellow sign I used to stretch:
4. For those of you that know the Around the Bay Route, you go past the Royal Botanical Gardens, past the cemeteries, high5 the little person and cross a wooden bridge before you make your way up Valley Inn Road 4 km from the finish. Since the road is now closed to traffic and to ensure no one drives on it, there is a big rock at the end of the wooden bridge blocking ~ 3/4 of the entrance. Part of our spotting duties is to yell: “Watch out for the rock!" which just sounds weird. Hope there isn’t too many people on race day trying to get across the bridge.
Is anyone else glad it is the weekend? I am ecstatic…especially since in between training, there will be a lot of chillin’ with the hubs.
