Yesterday was my first BBQ Stakes run since the track season began last October. A tempo run, although I sprinted the third km when Katie caught me. Then I had to let her go. I felt a lot better than I did on Sunday for the 5k, but it must be said, conditions were a bit better for the 6k.

After the Stakes, I went off to Canberra Uni gym, joined up for six months, and resumed stepper training.
The machine I used there is in fact the same one I used regularly some years ago. My stepper training is on the Stairmaster “FreeClimber 4400 CL”, pictured here.
The atmosphere at CU is quite good too: four televisions to watch, magazines to read, loud music, plus with my own walkman pushing out my music, plenty to keep me entertained.
And it's inside, away from Canberra's dark and wintry weather.
I don't like treadmills.

I also did a circuit class in the evening, mostly aerobic.
This winter, Wednesday is going to be one of those busy days.
