Same Song as Yesterday
Rate: 5'09" per km
Weather: cool,temp 6 degrees,cloudy,light drizzle,NW wind at 40km,humidity 80%
Not much of a day again, same as yesterday, but never the less I needed to get out. The wind blew from the NW strongly again,(hence the title) but I seemed to handle the conditions better again than the previous few runs. Must be getting fitter after the lay off, reasonable km rate today with half the run against. The drizzle was annoying with several times I had to stop to put the spray jacket on, the drizzle stopped, then the jacket had to come off as I got too warm. Never satisfied.
Decided to keep the run flatter so headed down to the river track between Pine Is and Point Hut crossing. The water levels have dropped quickly in the past few days since Point Hut road was closed last weekend due to the high water. The river still has plenty of water in it and it is cold. No soaking the legs at this time of the year after a run to aid recovery.
I may have a day off tomorrow with a longer run planned for Saturday. Time to get serious.
I received a reply to an email from Elizabeth today, she is still alive. She ran SFT couple of years ago with a stress fracture to her pelvis undiagnosed before the event and still ran well under 5 and 3/4 hours. Absolute hero.
