|Stromlo forest park|
It's nice to be back doing a bit of running as it means catching up with many running friends and acquaintances. The speedygeese are now doing a weekly training session at Stromlo. Although intervals are out the question at present, Stromlo is a nice place to jog around while the gaggle does their thing. There is also the wonderful parkrun and the essential post-parkrun coffee with like-minded coffee lovers. Last weekend's parkrun saw a bit more improvement running a 27:05, 20 seconds quicker than the previous effort. It still feels ridiculously hard and the high heart rate says it all. The long road back will need to include plenty of easy runs, especially the long ones. The first 10km run in a long time, was run on Tuesday. The running effort was too hard (damn that Strava segment!), but there is hope for building the mileage. Mental note to self - stay away from Strava segments when doing a long run!
