K-Run Done....just

Well I had to do today's run late do to a variety of commitments over the weekend. I think I either watched a show or read a book where a chef said that what they do isn't all that complicated. Basically, they said, to be a great chef you need to complete lots of small tasks with perfection. Well today I screwed up lots of small tasks which led to a really crappy run.
1. I have not being doing the stretches given to me by the physio - doh!
2. On the shorter runs, I have not really needed to take water - GOD I so wanted water today
3. I have been getting my runs done in the morning before the midday heat - today I ran in the midday heat
4. My earphones broke, and I NEED music to motivate me.
5. I did not hydrate properly before the run - schoolboy error.

However, despite all the above I got it done. I noticed that the pain in my leg kicks in at 6 to 7km. The last few kilometres were nothing more than a fast walk as I just could not run for a sustained period. I think that I need to get some inserts and get used to them before the 10k race in October.

I know now that I am not a runner. I just cant move with the efficiency that "runners" can. I do not get the "runners high". But I do enjoy running 5k. This is my comfort zone. I will never be one of these ultra dudes that can keep going for 100k, that is not me - I do have maximum respect for these people however.

K-Run is a great program, which really does get you running in a safe manner, it ramps up nicely, and I really enjoyed the lessons. Thanks to Malia for the support and putting up with me being a pain in the arse. Thanks to the team, you have been great to train with.

I am now going to drink a cold beer and then pick up the skipping rope and resistance bands - god how I miss them.

Great effort Scott. Sorry to hear your final run wasn't as great as it could have been. It was great to train with you again. I am totally with you about missing the rope and the bands. Good luck with the race.

    So many variables need to stack up in your favor to lock in a great run. They can be elusive. But great effort (and humor), that you can control. Congratulations on completing KRun. A restart can be a huge mental hurdle. Not for you, mate!

        I'm so proud of you for sticking it out, Scott, and making it across the finish line of the program. By hook or by crook as they say. "I'll just quit" just isn't in your vocabulary (which happens to be one of the most important qualities of ultradistance runners, but you can put that quality to good use for all of your other endeavors instead!). Huge props from me and your teammates all around! Congratulations on being COMPLETE!

          Well done Scott - great effort getting it done. You didn't mention how shocking the air pollution is too and that can really do you in over a long run! Enjoy the rope and bands :)

            Congrats on getting it done and complete! That's a lot of roadblocks to overcome for a run. Way to persevere. If 5k's are more your zone, keep those as your running targets going forward.

              You did it and that's enough, for sure! Way to go, man. Its quite impressive that you pressed on despite all the 'screwed up small tasks'. You are tougher than me, I would have quit if I didn't have music. HUGE kudos to you!
