In only 3 weeks.
Being now back in Auckland after 3 weeks on a cruiseship between San Francisco and here, I discovered during a 8 klm road run over hilly ground this morning (my first roadrun since leaving SFO) that I have decidedly "lost it"!!!
I did a number of treadmill runs during the intervening time and thought that they were doing my cardio a lot of good. I was able to run for a full hour on two occasions at an easy pace and other 30 minute tempo paced runs at quite high HR's. But the lack of road running certainly showed in my feet and calf muscles this morning. I have a 10k "race" in 3 weeks time so I think I will have to rebuild my ability to go the distance between now and then and forget about any time goal.
