The gravel track behind Bonython is now my speed location. Not as good as the grass at Calwell, but at least it's close and suitable. Certainly not a bare feet surface.
Easy jog to location as a warm up then 5 x 1 kms with 90 second rest in between. Started first one as easy as I could, not sure on how the legs would be after trying to run fast last Sunday. Better than expected so I just increased the pace each time without turning it to a sprint session.
First 1 km in 4' 27", 2nd in 4' 25", 3rd in 4' 14", 4th in 4' 12" and 5th in 4' 11". At the finished could have gone a little faster and done a couple more but that was enough. Felt good, nice day, sun was shining, what more could I ask.
