Well this is my last training session before I head off to Canberra. I am racing in the AMA Nationals, doing the 5000m and 10km road walk. AMA Website
I dont feel overly confident for this race series. I am probably the most underdone I have ever been for a Nationals Race but such is life and at least I am able to walk pain free now. I will use this as my build up for the Cairns Games and then on to Geelong for the Australian Masters Games in October.
I had another session with my chiropractor last night and he really got snapping on me. My back definitely feels much smoother but my hip joint is still achy and a tad stiff. He assures me I will feel great by Friday. So I shall wait and see how we go. I was meant to do 4 x 400m today but as no one was going to the track I saw little point in the long drive and $$ for the use of the track ... so I just went and did an easy 2km. Felt a little stiff for the first km but turned and eased into it.
I am so looking forward to catching up with lots of friends from over Aussie and NZ. Plus I get some time with my coach.
2km was done in 12:35 min
