Had awesome run today 20-22 km in 2:10 from Sandon point to Brokers Nose and back.Same as KJ's run other weekend that i couldn't get to.
Sophie and i decided to run it as an easy pace long run.Run starts at about sea level and rises to 445m ASL at the turnaround at Brokers Nose Trig.
Saw Ryan Gregson, Murray Smith, and ?(Barry Keem?)near the start of the bush part of the run looking strong as always (not surprising as Ryan came 24th Junior in World Mountain running Champs, Barry won the Fitroy Falls Mara and Murray's normal training partner is Kerryn McCann!)
It was an early start for us in the soon to be overcast and drizzly weather.
Sophie was charging up the hills and i tried to keep running but had a few walk breaks and caught up on my speciality the downhills.Run was really nice and was great to cover my third longest ever distance and still feel ok at the end so obviously the training is working.
No problems with low blood sugar this time Ewen as i sucked on a "Carb ShotZ" gel during the run,thanks for the advice!Was really thirsty towards the end of the run as we decided to seek water along the course (didn't find any though) instead of carrying water due to the cold and wet weather.
Some spills were had but recovered from after the mud went dry and i stopped laughing!
Had monday off as planned and Tuesday was to wet after work for my planned hill session so my next run was today.Ran for an hour (57mins) through the drizzle and cold but as Minersrun says..."no run is too long with good company!" Went from Towradgi Beach to Woonona Pool and return. Not sure the exact distance but at least 12.5km and into the wind and spray coming home.I once said this was my favourite part of running in jest but today i enjoyed the extra resistance.
Tommorow i will run twice a tough 4.2km circuit at the uni and a 5km track race in the evening times may be similar with an even effort.
Ps lots of lurkers have outed themselves in private conversation and it's nice to know you care :)
