Strewth - I'm Tardy!

I was a little late arriving at Parliament House for our mid-week run today and we didn't start until 6pm instead of the scheduled 5.45pm. Ewen was cranky and ran ahead of Richard, Andy and me to make up time for half the distance! He starts work very early in the mornings and needs lots of beauty sleep! But running is a good cure for crankiness and soon we were all chatting happily and hopefully all is forgiven!
It was hot tonight but the advantage of running that little bit later is that for the last 20 mins the breeze picked up and cooled the temperature down a little. We ran through the wetlands where there are some lovely shady spots which helped.
Total distance: 13.4km
Time taken: 1:24:12
Average pace per km: 6:16
Calories burned: 783
Mr B and I have decided on the spur of the moment to drive to Sydney tomorrow to take our daughter out for dinner for her 30th birthday - just stay the one night then home again. We might even make it to Bondi Beach with her. It will be fun. I'll miss the first track session for this year but will be back for the long run on Sat!


  1. You could miss 50 workouts and still be in better shape than me! You rock. Happy New Year, Strewth.

  2. And I need more beauty sleep the older I get! Unlike some.

    Aren't I supposed to look like Clint Eastwood?

    Didn't Clint Eastwood star in Unforgiven?

  3. Hopefully you had a great trip to Sydney! I miss Bondi Beach already!
