For you and your DD.

We had a good but very MUDDY walk today. 23 mins to get up a very steep hill, almost slipping back as we went up, good for cardio vascular system and 50 mins brisk walking altogether. Clear and bright, very cold wind.

Sluggish 5k run yesterday pushing a cranky toddler! Got an awesome workour picking up hat, shoes and toys off the ground while running... NOT! The heat didn't help either. Pace was abysmally slow. Oh well. At least I could tick it off the plan.

This morning I got up early for my workout. But because this is my firat day at work, I was a little hesitant about going for a run - what is I don't have enough time to get ready for work? What if I feel too tired for work? The demons in my head kept telling me to stay put and move my run to the afternoon. But eventually I managed to silence them and have not regretted my decision to lace up and head out.

I smashed a 10k hills workout in perfect running weather: cool but sunny. I ran around the base of Mt Ainslie, maintained a slow but even pace throughout and only stopped for a couple of drinks and to marvel the group (gang? herd?) of kangaroos crossing my path. They move so gracefully, I think spotting them gave my run a bit of a boost, too.

The only downside of this fantastic morning is that I may have pulled a muscle charging downhill. I wanted to give my quads a workout, instead felt pain in my right buttock. Oh well, time to get that foam roller (or book that massage). Tomorrow is rest day!

Well done thermilove, sounds like you are going great. I'm having a few days rest as feeling very sluggish, I think all the guests, cooking, cleaning and setting up for parties as well as work has all got to me. I have a PT session on Friday so think I will take it easy until then. The family are all going away for a week so I should be able to train each day they are away.

Best wishes DGinO.

Great job DJ.

Well had surgery at 6pm yesterday and up and walked a little today - attached to Iv and leg pumps (DVT preventers) but hopefully will loose them all tomorrow and start lapping the ward level - although I was pretty bugger today after my few steps! Aim to be home by Tuesday fingers crossed!
Thanks for the good wishes.  Dublin girl

I had to go back quite a few pages Dublin Girl to find out what you were in hospital for.  Glad to hear you are up and about - gee they don't waste any time these days having you up and walking.  Good luck with it all - a lot of people go into rehab and not straight home from hospital - is that not an option for you?
