|The courts and track at Bukit Timah are full of so many people doing something|
its almost like a festival of fitness every . single . day ... awesome place
|This was the temp two hours after I started|
I really needed that positive attitude today, I found my legs didn't want to move as fast as I wanted them to! By the time we got to the track it had been baked in sun for the day and I felt hot just walking out there let alone running. Lucky the vibe out at CCA is so awesome you just want to do it regardless of how your legs feel and I did do it and managed all the running segments which made me feel so proud. Ned and I weren't the best of mates today, I clock watched a bit during the running phases and, once again, didn't drink enough water earlier in the day. Came away with a headache thanks to a lack of water, but was really pleased with how quickly I recovered from the run afterwards ... Bonus!
Ok, I have made some progress with finding some races in New Zealand I can work towards completing. The first one is a 5k race I promised Caryn I would do on the first of December. I found one in Auckland, the ADRA Charity Run that goes around the Auckland waterfront and has no hills ... a good idea me thinks for the beginner 5k race runner! Registrations open shortly and I am excited there are some friends and family that have said they will run it too ... nothing like having others to support and inspire you.
The other event I have registered for is the Run Auckland 2014 series. The series takes in 6 races at different locations around Auckland and takes place between March and July. Competitors get the choice of participating in the 5k or 10k at each event and the sixth race also includes the Run Auckland Half Marathon ... perfect timing as its about a year away, SWEET!
Well that's about it for today, run and dusted ... Two day break before there is any further movement away from the couch towards 5k which is a little sad. However, it gives me a chance to explore the food side of things more and let you know what my family are doing to support me and also join in :0)
