I'm exhausted! Which I really found out today when I was supposedly meeting moondust at 6am for a 6km run..........but didn't get up until 6.15am, by which time moondust was already waiting. So I hurried as much as I could and said I'd meet her along the way - thinking I'd duck through the side streets and meet her 1/2 way down to our turnaround.......but I couldn't even get that organised and faffed around and didn't meet up until the return leg (nearly 4km in to the 6km run)! I then ran back to our start at Montage to finish off moondust's 6km and then ran home to finish off mine.
So, have promised myself (and moondust) to eat better and to sleep LOTS more (and not the falling asleep in the afternoon or at the computer type sleep...).
Other than tiredness, I have been keeping on track for the most part with my training plan. My heart rate seems to have settled a little and my GP isn't concerned as long as it lowers well after running, and I don't feel more than the occasional 'flutter'...and not when running! BP is fairly OK (except for white coat hypertension, but my home measurements are all good) and keep on with meds as now. So, no relief in sight for the thirst and hydration issues but I am getting used to it and taking water with me all the time - especially in this heat!
Enjoyed Summer Twilight at Centennial on Friday night and looking forward to the next one I can get to. Tossing up now whether to do my Sunday run on Monday with the running group from my PT.......Spit to Manly. The hills though! Might be better to stick to the bay and local until I have more km's and strength behind me. Speaking of which......I have posted on the 'my first half marathon thread' and am feeling very inadequate with the km's I'm doing and have planned out ahead to do, when I compare it to some of the others who have posted. But ...... I do know that I'm only aiming to get through, not a speedy time and if I am sensible, and build slowly then I am less likely to get injured.....
So, up for a walk tomorrow, 5.5km run Thurs morning and then strength in the evening, rest on Friday, cross train on Sat and 8km on Sunday. And of course.........sleep
