Ran my mile in 5:38 very happy with the wind against us.(84sec laps)
Was pipped for a place in the last 100metres.
We have a 3k this thursday so i will shoot for sub 12mins,
actually i might try for first 6 laps at 90 secs each and see how i go?
i have done it for 5 laps (2km in 7:30) but has been a long standing goal to run a mile and a half(2.4km) in 9 mins or less.Just never had a 2.4km race b4!If i make that then i will just have to keep going and smash my 3km best over the next 1.5 laps and bring from 12:08 down to 11:15!!

Well heres to goals and breaking them wish me luck!

Haven't run for a week so i needed to get out.
Went down the road about 4km with my dog and was a little lethargic.

Now i am up for the 1 mile final with handicap
my time last year was 6:13.5
I expect to do it this year in 5:36

Got home from work at 11:30 and turned on the computer and there was an email from MC saying she was going to run to Brokers nose in the morning at 7am that sounded good to me!
I went to bed and set the alarm clock and when i woke i got ready after trying to help out with Jacob.
So at 7:10 i got to the meeting spot and changed from my light shoes into my Kayano's well it wasn't long before i wished i didn't as my feet hurt.Oh well it was too late to change them so we carried on.Awesome view from the top of the mountain stopped for a couple of minutes beforwe carrying on at a "relaxing" not too strenuous pace left my watch off today to just enjoy a chat and a steady pace.We went down Rixons pass next which was nice and muddy in patches.At some of the steep parts i just let go and sprinted down the rocky slopes which was a bit of an adrenaline rush!We ran under the escarpment then and took in some more great views and steep parts to go up.Got to the old mine and went down the bitumen path and on to another bush track which got us out near the bottom of Balgownie.
All in all a great run and i feel a little sore for the estimated 16km we covered but would do it again.We ran to Sheena's house and she drove us all back to our cars and we went home.
When i got home i bought rolls and Carrie Jacob and I went and had a lovely picnic lunch at the Rhododendron park before it was time for me to go back to work.Excellent day.
