Last week I was lucky enough to be on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia for a conference. This did however mean that my normal training routine was going to be a little bit disrupted. I did however manage to get out for some exercise in the mornings. My knee was really sore when I arrived, I did head down to the beach at 5:30 on the Monday morning to go for a run only to discover that
- Running on soft sand was really difficult – I knew this from past experience but clearly my newly exercising mind over stated my abilities.
- It is still quite a bit warmer on the Gold Coast at 5:30 than it is in the Waikato.
- My knee was REALLY sore..
Therefore I just decided to go for a walk and enjoy the sights along the beach. Wednesday’s walk was two hours while I was hunting cycling shops to find a new pair of cycling shoes, it was 25C and hot, I was wearing a pair of all stars 🙂
Thursday I walked with my boss, the pace was a little slower than I had previously been doing, but it was a nice change to walk and talk with someone, and Saturday I was home and headed up my usual hill route and achieved my best distance to date.
- Monday – Walk 6.1 km
- Wednesday – Walk 10.0km
- Thursday – Walk 5.0km
- Saturday – Walk 6.7km
