Today's scheduled run was a quick 5km run. This took me about 20 minutes, and when I got back I felt distinctly unsatisfied, and kind of like I've just warmed up and was now ready for action. Now, don't get me wrong, the quickie has its time and place (nowt wrong with the occasional quickie), its just that this morning it left me wanting more...
So, I did a 30 minutes kick-boxing workout when I got back. No extra running = training schedule still on track = feeling awesome = only 1 more training run til the race!
I was worried last night that I may have made a silly mistake and agreed that it's an awesome idea to go and climb a mountain at the edge of our city on a Monday late arvo after work when it's only 6 days away from an event that I've been preparing for diligently for months, as after said mountain climb (hundreds of steps steep enough and precarious enough to rival that of the Great Wall - hence we have nicknamed it the Great Wall of Yiwu, our city) I had that shaky/wobbly leg thing
going on. But it seems that a self-administered calf massage followed by a HUGE plate of vegetable dumplings, a cucumber and rice noodle salad, coconut juice, and, later on, dark chocolate, has fixed any would-be achiness or injury. Turns out it was an awesome idea (thanks Husband!), and it provided us with an amazing view of the city and the mountains surrounding it on what was a clear, crisp evening.
Have a tops Tuesday now won't you.
