No where near KB pace today, felt slow, was slow, even with the wind assisting. A nice day for a longish run, work to Pine Is, along the river track towards Point Hut, turned up through dog exercise area, over Woodcock Dr to Gordon, under Drakeford Dr to review plan at the track around the base of Tuggeranong Hill.
Decided to do the loop clockwise, working on the basis that the wind would help on the hillier side, and hopefully would be less on the Conder side. Not much difference really.
First time this spring / summer that I have carried a water bottle during the week, and drank all the contents, 600 mls.
After getting back to the underpass, took the shorter flatter gravel track behind Bonython back to Pine Is to help a couple of tired legs recover by standing in the water for 15 minutes. Easy jog back to work, the water certainly helped although the temperature is slowly rising, maybe need to add an ice block or two to cool it down.
I will need to improve to keep up with CJ and softshoeshuffle on Saturday on Mt Tennent if today is anything to go by.
