Juneathon – Day 25 – Cool of the night

25 06 2010

As it’s forecast hot again tomorrow, decided to bring my run forward to this evening. And very pleasant it was too. Did just about the shortest two hill run I can do from home, still over 9km so a good workout. Up Stonebarrow, along to Chardown Hill, down the steep slippery bit, and then cut straight down to the coast path and rejoined the Challenge route up past Westhay Farm and up Stonebarrow again.

Nice and quite, nobody about, and not too hot. At various times disturbed a whole bunch of rabbits  plus a green woodpecker who was probably munching on a nice supper of ants before being rudely interrupted.

In pretty good condition when I got back compared to the state I was in after my long run last weekend. Recovered much quicker. Feel ok now (45 mins later) except the inside of my left ankle feels a bit sore. Probably just paranoia with only a week to go until the race.

9.16km,  1hr 2m 25s,  6m 48s per km average.  430m of ascent.

64 sit-ups earlier.

Spanish Omelette for tea of course. Past Bolognaise yesterday when Italy went out. Gets difficult now as it’s difficult to plan ahead.
