So the week in summary. Tuesday was a progressive run starting at 4:40/km and working up to 4:10. I did way better than I thought. Thursday was a tempo run on an easy trail, felt strong.

Couple of pics from Saturday.

I was wasted after Saturday's run, but come Sunday the legs were not too bad and managed a respectable 1:34 run.
So I am in the strength phase now and as a result have just finished building my own Bubba - but mine is named Kegger.
