It was a great morning for a run, overcast and not too hot. The run started on a cycle path with a steady uphill climb for about 2km and after that it levelled off and there was quite a bit of downhill and some off road. It was a good run and if I had been slightly less tired I could probably have done a better time but I was reasonably happy with the result and felt quite comfortable after the little warm-up. The warm-up was definitely a good plan! CJ was flying - her knee heavily bandaged but on the mend. She is so well prepared for the 6' in a couple of weeks!

  1. Gee you did well after yesterday! When it started I was still in the process of thinking should I get up or stay in bed for another 10 minutes.

    Good news about CJ. She kneeds to kneep careful for the kneext 2 weeks!

  2. I'm sorry that I didn't get to Vets (actually did a very pleasant 11k's with a few from my Saturday group).

    Yesterday was a pleasant day for running and you had a nice zippy run there, Strewth. That sub-five k leg you did was also impressive. 34th out of 112 is a very nice result. Well done.

    (Thanks also for your very nice comment on my blog - means a lot to me)
