I needed a flat run after yesterday's hilly run. I had thought about 25 laps in lane 5, but that would have been too fast a session. Instead, a casual run from home to Point Hut, along the river track to Pine Is, up to the top car park and back to the beach to stand and splash about in the water for 10 minutes.
Met softshoeshuffle just prior to that, short discussion about yesterday's run, then away he went to finish off his 20 km run. Made my 15 kms look average.
Ran back home on the tracks behind Bonython, felt surprisingly good, no effects from yesterday. All that up hill has a benefit on the down hill, no quad soreness any more.
Strewth, the more hills you can run up and down, the easier it becomes. Just try it, it's not that tough. Just ask superwomen CJ about what to do. Lots of walking involved, the strength gained will certainly help you run stronger for longer, not any faster, speedygeoff will look after that part for you on a Monday night.
Sunday reflection, when travel around my suburb, all I see are mountains, Mt Tennent to the south, Mt Rob Roy to the south east, behind me is Mt Taylor. You can't help but be motivated.
