Slow paced run this morning from home with Bull's Head Challenge tomorrow. Down past Calwell shops to the oval to the sound of kids having fun. Plenty of them with all ovals being used, must have been a Little Athletics inter club meet. Conditions were really good for them, the oval and grass now in good condition from a few sunny, warm days recently.
Stopped to watch from a distance, decided not to lodge a late entry as most were going too fast for me.
Kept going around the back of the Theodore houses to the gate that leads to near the Monaro Hwy. Decided to practice walking the hills ready for tomorrow, I know I will walk sometime, probably often. A circuit of the hill exiting at the sub station, then back on the fire trail to the oval, past the Calwell High School where I must vote this afternoon in the ACT elections, and up Johnson Dr to home.
The walking made the km rate look slow, but the rest of the trip was OK.
Just read Emma's story on Speedygeoff's blog, Vancouver sounds like a really nice place, pity about the cold and snow in winter.
Ewen, If CJ and Strewth decide to do Six Foot Track next year, maybe you could right out your training program for them, just use the back of a discarded postage stamp from work. Your program for this year's run worked a treat for you. When does Strewth get back from O/S ?
