Taper jog along beaches/headland/trails to Arrawarra Headland and back. Sometimes running easy is really hard...lots of energy and just wanted to run flat out...good signs for Sunday. Also finding meditating mid-run or towards end really helping as running makes monkey mind more calmer than usual. Will continue.

From Woopi Back over the headland, trails around the lake and back home. 15mins meditation at the lake made the 2nd half more enjoyable and flow-like. Really good way to break up an easy run, especially as i was extra mindful of keeping it 'easy'.
Strength & Conditioning1:00:00
Yoga-type class at Nexus Gym with family. Like running, need to focus on consistency each day rather than periodic hard sessions. I'm guilty of the latter, definitely go through phases of stretch/strength then forget.
Instructor said 'When doing any type of trainiing you want to wake up the next day not sore. If you woke up sore, you overtrained". That stuck with me. Wise instructor.

Woopi Physio Run Squad
4 x 1km beach reps at 90%. Legs heavy from start of first one but managed 3:15-3:20's then died a bit more on the last. Borrowing a Suunto of a mate so haven't figured how to adjust data screens to tell what speed I was running or recovery time. Felt like about 2mins rest on each. Quality session and will extend to more reps in future. Would help running with someone on the reps as was going out too hard and paying for it in last 200m each time. Time to taper for Elephant 25km.

W/D Despite a magic orange sunrise, was <5 degrees, fingers lost circulation and throbbed for a painful 30mins after. Needed gloves...left them in Sydney :(

All out 2.5km at Woopi XC. Ran as hard as i could. Parts were slow due to technical single track with some pinches too. Maybe equivalent to a <3:10 average on flat so stoked with that considering being solo and current training.
15 sec off the CR set by Jordan Gusman a few years back (recent NSW XC Champ who beat Ben St.)...though he would smoke that time now. Thought i might've gotten close but that's a bloody fast time on that course. Not sure where i could gain that time, will come back with fresher legs in future.
