run rabbit run

"On the farm, every Friday
On the farm, its rabbit pie day.
So, every Friday that ever comes along,
I get up early and sing this little song:
Run rabbit - run rabbit - Run! Run! Run!"
Noel Gay & Ralph Butler

Well, today is Friday, and I saw a rabbit while I was running. Interesting. I thought they were more into XC courses, but this one was striding out along the local street, before switching to XC as I caught up with it. It made me wonder what prompted it to venture into curb and guttering terrain. Unlikely it would have been attracted by the stirring sounds of the bobcats or trucks. Perhaps it was sneakily cutting corners on a favourite training course. In any event, I would think it will be moving on again, round about the time that the next digger carves up the remaining land in that vicinity.

Training for 2006 has been to plan so far:
Mon 02/01 10k run, weights session
Tue 03/01 8k run
Wed 04/01 8k run
Thur 05/01 8k run
Fri 06/01 8k run

And now the better news...
Tomorrow we're off to Port Stephens for the full-on family holiday (all 3 kids). What a lovely spot : great beaches (surf/no surf), shopping and dining.... and great running !
The plan : 4 x 8k plus 2 x 12k.
Mixing up the courses a little this year.
The longer runs will be point-to-point, to Fingal Bay, and then another one to Soldiers Point. Both will require collection by Mrs BB in the car, so we'll probably combine a family swim at the end.
I'll also try to get in a weights session or two at Glen's Gym. Got to keep the triceps etc in shape ! No doubt I'll be able to do this anyway through acrobatics with YD in the water.

Family hols also provide the careful planner the opportunity to mix in a few other favourite pastimes. A short list : BBQs, wine tasting, DVD watching, reading, music listening, conversing, vegging.

My next post will be around 14/01, and should include updates on training as well as the reading log.

Bon Voyage!
