Week 13: Will a blood trade-in a cure that rundown feeling?


Hi all,

With nine days to go until Run Melbourne I’m getting ready and pushing my friends to top up my donations. Feel free to make a contribution yourself.

I got my run kit in the mail this week, which was exciting.

This week was less intense as usual, mainly because I’m starting to feel a bit more run down.


Saturday I did 7km at a 6:55 min pace, then Tuesday I did a much more sluggish and under-performing 5km at a 7:26 pace. I elected to take the rest of the week off so I could recover properly. I did donate plasma on Friday morning though, for the first time in about 5 years. Hopefully my under-performing old blood will be replaced by newer, faster blood in short order.

Until next time, happy running!
