This week I made a big effort to keep my recovery runs slow. Thursday's was a little unplanned as I forgot to bring a singlet to work to run in. So I went home through peak hour traffic which took me about 30 minutes longer than my normal trip. I have been trying to encourage Kewell to get out and do some running so he will be fit for the upcoming football season, so my unexpected arrival home gave us the opportunity to go out together. He was less than pleased but I was rather looking forward to running with him. So what was going to be a slow run turned into a game of cat and mouse. Somehow he was always managed to be about 10 metres behind me. No matter how slow I went he never caught up. If I stopped he stopped. If I jogged on the spot he did the same.
My other runs showed good progress. My long run on Sunday over my 25k course was the first time I have ever negative split this course (65:20 , 64:05). That is quite a feat as it is generally downhill out and uphill back. I think that it helped there was a slight head wind back which seemed to make it just a little cooler on the way back. But with Relative Humidity in the 85 - 90% zone it is still too humid for my liking.
Came across this video from the early 60s the other day. I know Tesso & JD will love it. Hope you do too.
