4Km Last Run for the Kids session
A nice easy lap of The Tan today (yes, I know it is 3.8Km however I also ran back to my car from Brunch as well). I didn’t bother timing it, we all ran as a group and I moved around and had a good chat with some regulars. Afterwards one of the girls came up to thank me for my help and advice and also on behalf of her friend who didn’t make it to the session which was lovely.
Running down past Kings Domain preparations were well and truly underway for tomorrow.
Afterwards had a bit of fun with an Easter Egg hunt and a plank competition (if you have to ask you don’t want to know). Then some of us Run Leaders headed over to The Observatory for Brunch. I had a hankering for porridge but not on the menu, I settled for Bircher Muesli with stewed apples and rhubarb, heavenly :-)
Sitting there having a chat I was feeling a bit sad because I was really enjoying these sessions, everyone was great and it also gave me some company for a Saturday run. Problem solved though, seems I have been “dobbed” in for some of the Start to Finish sessions at Jells on a Saturday morning :lol:, I probably should have put my hand up for these anyway being it is so close to home and I’d be there for a Saturday run anyway.
Well, as I said the other day I have been having some great Sunday long runs so I am feeling fresh and confident. I am looking forward to having a great time tomorrow, enjoying the atmosphere and catching up with my mates. And of course if I manage to hit my target pace I’ll be pretty damn happy too.
Have a good night sleep folks and I’ll see some of you tomorrow.
PS – if you are wondering what is with the title that is what it says on my watch which has been counting down to today.
One more thing
I read a great interview with Lisa Corrigan in the latest Run for your Life magazine. I have been lucky enough to see her run a couple of times, once at a milers meet (she won) and most recently at the Telstra A Series in Melbourne where she won the mile in a fantastic last minute surge AND claimed the Australian Record. Her celebration when she did this was priceless and I admit I had a bit of a tear in my eye. If you get a chance read the interview, she is a total sweetheart. Her vulnerabilities and insecurities really struck a chord with me, particularly her honesty about struggles with body image. But you also got a sense of her understated confidence in her ability. She is only 22 so it will be pretty exciting to see where she progresses from here, especially with World Champs in August and the Olympics next year.
