Sunday 12 August - 10mins slow, 20mins fartlek, 10mins slow
For the fartlek session I chose to run hard up any inclines that got in my way! Because I've been running mainly on the flat to keep my heart rate down, it is actually exciting to do this for a change. I really want to move onto some varied terrain so I have more route options - there are so many great places to run where I live.
Speaking of great places to run - in the morning we went for a 1 hour bush walk to Cascade Falls in the Waitakere's, and there was a group of four runners who took off around the same time, which just made my legs twitchy and want to follow them. I love running trails, and can't wait until I'm a bit fitter so I can do so! Here's some photos of our walk so you can see what I mean:
|Doesn't it make you want to break into a run?|
|A real NZ silver fern, as worn by all our Olympic athletes!|
|A native NZ bush robin, so friendly he hopped to within a metre of us!|
