Half a Run...I Feel Cheated

Distance: 15.4 km
Time: 79' 59"
Rate: 5' 11" per km
Altitude gain/loss: 280 metres
Weather: sunny, temp 11-15 degrees, humidity 70%, wind calm
Week & March: 69.5 km
Year: 899.9 km

I feel cheated not to be able to do a really long run on a near perfect morning. Tapering or easing down means missing a few days of running, or at least cutting back to freshen up. This time next Saturday I will hopefully just cresting the pluviometer on Black Range and heading towards Caves Road.
Just after sun rise this morning our final run together started behind the War Memorial. Plenty of cars parked as other groups went out on their morning runs or just walking up Mt Ainslie. A couple of regulars missing today with Weston Creek half marathon tomorrow or others just having a sleep in. Whatever the excuse, a great morning was missed.
A short version of the Bush Capital 16 km run, even going down to the CSIRO and Campbell High start line. Run at talking pace and comfortable all the way, as it should have been with all the training done now, a nice hit out. Bit of a chat at the finish discussing next weekend and a little concerned about Nick's hammie problem. Not good at this time, but he does have a week to get it right. Otherwise, it's a long 45 kms of walking.
