The Norfolk Rd 5.3km Run


This morning’s run was tough! Not only is it getting lighter a bit later, but there was this icy wind! ALMOST a good enough excuse to not go out for a run. Not sure if I have recovered completely from the flu, don’t really feel like it, but it has been almost 2 weeks now. It might just be all in the head. I used to feel so good after a run, still do but lately I feel tired and don’t seem to feel energised like I used to feel 😦

My body needs fuel…

I should probably start to look into eating the write type of food for the amount of running I am going to do over the next two month. I don’t think salad and fruit is enough for a runner’s body. Really wanted to stay away from the pasta, but is seems like I am gonna have to increase by carb intake if I want to get rid of this drained feeling at the moment. My body needs fuel :-)! Would be interesting to see what it does to the weight!!!!! so from now on I will be keeping track of weight loss as well :-(. Really did not want to focus on the weight right now, wanted to do the running and the weight must look after itself…guess it is not that simple :-O

Duration: 42mins

Distance:  5.3km

Calaries: 620cal

The route: Norfolk Rd. I will be doing this route more regularly from now on, as I need to conquer Norfolk Rd! So I am going to try and improve on my time, specifically in last 2 kms as that is ALL HILL. Going to be fun!


The mother of HILL!

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
