Running with Tired Legs!

Now these tired legs could be caused by a few hard runs this week or a hard workout at RPM or just plain late nights but they were certainly objecting this afternoon when Ewen and I ran our usual route to Molonglo Reach bridge and back. Naturally there was a head-wind on the way back but it was quite hot on the way out, far hotter than it had been earlier in the day when it was positively winter-like! I had to stop twice for water which makes me realise that it's time I took a drink bottle on these runs. We saw some new baby goslings and last week's babies had grown bigger! They were all eager to come to the water's edge and follow us in the hope of some crumbs. They are so cute.
Total distance: 14:08
Time taken: 1:27:48
Average pace per km: 6:14
Calories burned: 822
I was surprised that this was less than a minute slower than last week as it felt like hard work tonight but at least we ran all the way and Ewen did most of the talking!


  1. Glad you didn't mention how I ran ahead when I made that comment about the running skirts ;)

    I hope you ran well tonight. Work was bad for me, so I'm running from home.

  2. Meanest thou cygnets? Tis rare to see goslings, unless there be reproducing geese nigh?
