A True Cross Country Run

6.45am - Yoga class before work.
6.15pm - Cross Country spring series at Weston Park
It had been raining on and off most of the day but when we ran at 6.15pm the rain had stopped and humidity had taken over. It was sticky weather and the course was "cross country" in the true sense of the word. It was undulating, grassy, potholes and uneven surface. I ran carefully as I do have a habit of tripping over. I found it much more difficult than last Tuesday and my disappointing time reflected this.
Total distance of run: 5km (plus 1km warm up and 4km cool down)
Time taken:29.1mins
Average pace per km: 5:45
Total distance for day: 10km
6.15am - Strength work at gym
7am - Abs class
6pm - Run from Parliament House with Jen, Ewen and Chris.
We just ran a gentle run this evening. Again, it had rained earlier and the weather was sticky but the company was good.
Total distance: 8km

  1. The jelly beans were good too.

    29.1 minutes? What's point one of a minute? 1/10th? 6 seconds? 29:06?
