Not making as much progress as I'd hoped though not really back to 2 classes a week with all that is going on. So some tracks are a challenge.

Wow - just wow. So good to be back and surprised myself by almost doing the Trots Track run without stopping - first time in a very long while. Time went quickly - such a great instructor and good class.
Street Series (Rathmines SSS#5) 47:05  5.04 km (9:21 / km)
Hit every heavy traffic section between home and event site according to LiveTraffic.com so it took me an hour to get there. But I did see all people I needed to see regarding initial selection of course Planners/Controllers for Newcastle Shorts Weekend 2019. Overcast and beaut temperature, but area is large and lots of hills, plus these course setters are renowned for difficulties! I didn't encounter any dodgy clues but several others did.
Decided to give running a go but was very disappointed with points return - compared with those who walked. Still i chose a more challenging route and enjoyed being out - what more could I want?

Heart wasn't really in this today - head has a few plans to enact today.
warm up/down 13:00 
Brisk walk around the old neighbourhood. Lots of changes unsurprisingly and some places looking really great from the outside. Interesting test to remember the names of the people who lived in the various houses.
Park Run (Newy - rebuild) 43:14  5.0 km (8:39 / km)
S-1 9:09 horrible start experience which continued for the first km - so many people which was fine but the kids running and jumping and starting and stopping was awful plus prams and DOGS everywhere. Just horrible. Even feel like starting 5 minutes late just to avoid it. I know I sound like a DINK person and I am all supportive of people getting out and encouraging children to be in the outdoors and doing family activities but.... if there weren't so many mosquitoes at all the other Newcastle events I'd be there.
1-2 8:46 got into a bit of a rhythm and was enjoying picking off slower moving walkers.
2-3 9:12 Really feel this is a long km - every time is noticeably longer than the other markers.
3-4 7:41 Decided I'd had enough of the walking caper and decided to run when and where i wanted. Felt alright but not brilliant. I'm much further back in recovery than I'd anticipated - both mentally and physically.
4-5 8:23 Time sealed it - not a lot of interest.
Had a nice but brief chat with someone I'd been playing tag with throughout. He said i depressed him because my walking speed is faster than his running speed - which was true. We shuffled together for a while then he said he was using me as an inspiration to get his PB down by 2 minutes. He went ahead about 100m when i had a walking break but then I mowed him down. I tried to encourage him to run with me in the home straight but he couldn't do it. Didn't want to totally dispirit him by saying I'm twice his age!
Bike 50:00 
finding it difficult to mount any speed and HR was not getting up either. But purpose served to do some and to build up bike stamina.
