I don't usually run many days in a row without a rest day. With many kms still to cover before the end of the year, a rest day is now an easy day with less distance, an early night and a warm Milo before bedtime. Even better if you can find a marshmallow to dunk in it as well.
Today I just ran home for lunch and back to work the most direct way without going on the road. Lucky to miss any rain, it has just started now, early evening, but hopefully that will stop by morning.
The Deep Space Marathon and other events are on Sunday on Mt Tennent and from Honeysuckle to Orroral Valley and back, one requirement is a dry track up Mt Tennent.
Reports from the Triple Tri are varied, Ewen has sore quads on the "no train, all pain" theory of mountain running. CJ has pulled up well, seems happy with herself, after running over Red Hill, the last run leg of the race. Kelley is still out of action with shin splints. Other than that, the rest of the squad are fine, that's me.
Group bike ride on Thursday looks doubtful because of the rain, that's good enough to be able to run a bit more.
