Vets Handicap at Campbell Park

Unfortunately due to an emergency family situation I could not get to the long run yesterday so was glad I could run in the handicap today at least. Better a little run than none at all. It was held at Campbell Park and the conditions were perfect - not too hot for once. Of course there were hills but it was just 3km out and back so much shorter than what we usually struggle to run. The only trouble is it takes me at least 3km to warm up. I should have arrived earlier and run a decent warm up first! After the presentations and notices I went to Hudsons to enjoy a lovely cappuccino with friends.

Distance: 6km
Time taken: 33:03
Average pace per km: 5:30
Handicap: 25
Place: 74th (out of 102) - not brilliant!!


  1. That's still a very zippy time you did Strewth, perhaps helped by the slightly cooler weather we had yesterday. But it's still a hilly course, and good on you for a good effort.

  2. What! No invitation......I'm hurt...:-(

  3. CJ was still asleep at coffee time.

  4. I'm not hurt. Just bring your thermos to the next Saturday long run.
