Back into it

This week i've had a breakthrough. The last couple of days worth of running have felt easy and comfortable. Finally!

My fitness is obviously coming back and things are getting a little easier. The first couple of weeks back were super hard. It seemed the effort i was putting in wasnt being reflected in my times or HR. Now it seems they are and thats a great confidence boost.

121.8km all up this week
6 runs (took sunday off)
10hrs 43 mins

Probably the best run of the week would have to be the run up to Frenchs Forest. I took it nice and easy and felt great the whole way. Could have carried on for another 20km. Hit the half marathon mark in 1hr 38 which was a nice feeling:

Next week im going to definitely have to get my runs in before work as its looking like a scorcher. Im absolutely terrible at getting out of bed if I dont have to but this week I DO have to.

I plan to run the Fatass Megalong Mega next Sunday. 36km over some great trails in the Blue Mountains. Meant to be pretty gruelling but will be good fun! No taper for this run as its not really a race just a good hit out with like minded people. Perfect.
