Sorry not sorry for another post. On a fitness note, I participated in the Sydney Running festival, specifically the Bridge Run today. All the way from Milsons Point to the Sydney Opera House!
The day started of sunny, cold and not so windy, as I woke ap at 6am to be out of the house by 6.50am. Breakfast was three rice cakes with a small amount of tuna and avocado with some veggies and a coffee, with a bit of fruit. After that, it was a lift to the station. I had to be at the venue before the 8am start for bridge run.Took the train there and hopped off Milson’s point with fellow runners. The loo lines were taking a long time but lucky I waited in my line and then it was straight to thte start area. The area was moving but since I picked the slow group C, I waited in that group before the group start, costing me my official time where it took me 61 minutes to run chip time….lesson learnt. Shame I missed out this time (again) to get into green group for city2surf next year but will pick the faster group in blackmores and aim to run better next year.
The course itself was flat, beautiful and good to run with and despite being in the slowest group, I ran the whole course with minimal rest. Seeing the Opera house in sight at the end was the best motivation after running 10KM!
After that I went to collect my medal and headed to the recovery village for a recovery burrito (kale, egg, ham or bacon) and a rather sweet black coffee. Since I was a little hungry, I got myself a shake from Thrive and bought a new jacket because I was shivering!
Training wise? After city2surf, I focused mainly on shorter speedier runs twice a week. This helped me speed wise in this race.
Happy that I ran it just over an hour but not glad with my official time :(. Running season is offically over for me..
Would I do it again? For a better time, yes! Next year perhaps…..maybe a half marathon in the future, will see…
I’ve set myself new running goals to work towards for next running season. For now, it’s focus on speed work.
Anyways, that’s my thoughts in a nutshell and see you when I next post.
