Makes sense

that if you sign up for a relay marathon, you should probably go running once in a while.

So I did.

45 minutes -walked to the first bridge, ran down to the second bridge, over and back to the first, then walked home.

approx 4km -not much but it felt pretty good for having been away so long.

Bike to sports day

Only 6km.
It's usually 5, but I forgot my camera and had to go back for it.

not a very exciting, or productive, day.

Where are my freakin' goggles? Soap inna eye, soap inna eye! Get out of my lane buddy or I'll run you over! -ack! leg cramp!

That's how my swim went today. I forgot to put my regular goggles back in my bag, so I pulled an old pair out from the depths of some inner pocket of forementioned bag - strap discolored, lenses scratched...and slimey with soap or some other beauty product that had oozed out into the pocket at some point. I thought I had rinsed them well enough. But apparently not. 25m in and my eye was stinging and watering and miserable. I kept swimming thinking it would get better eventually, but it didn't. That didn't stop me though. What stopped me (besides the guy who insisted on pushing off the wall EVERY FREAKIN TIME I was coming in for a turn) were the leg cramps during the last rep of my main set. Not just one leg -both. Calf seizing, toe curling agony is what it was. I managed to finish the set and then kick it out a bit for cool down.

A big swim nonetheless:

4oo Kick
5x 200 Free pull/100 IM on 1:00 Free was build, IM was long and strong.
300 cool down

6km straight up

One would think that living in the mountains would mean that coming out of the mountains, one would go DOWN. This, however is not the case if you head southwest from my apartment. It's all up hill baby. Well, at least for 6km. Then once you're at the top, it's straight down to my school -4km worth. It took 25min for the first 6km and 8min for the last 4. I will not be taking that route again. Or at least not until I'm more fit.

On the way home I skirted around the mountain, still managed a hill or two, but it was a much more even pace.

20km to Taie Elementary School and back.

Sea Swim

Went for a swim in the sea. Nothing strenuous -except for the jellyfish stings.

30minutes of paddling around.
I wasn't going to go in, but how can you resist this!

Evening walk

I walked to my Jr. High school and back tonight, just to see how long it would take.
Exactly 30 minutes at a good hard pace.
That meant 30 minutes back.

1hour ~5km

30min yoga
