Arboretum - Monthly Handicap

Distance: 7.0 kms in 33' 44" at ave 4' 49" per km
Start group: 35
Finished: 20th/ 102
Warm up & cool down:
Distance: 10.25 kms in 56' 30" at ave 5' 31" per km
Weather: sunny, temp about 17 degrees, humidity 45%, wind WNW 20 kmph
Week:  113.00 km, Oct:  458.65 km, Year:  2356.9 km

It's a tough undulating course on the western side of the Arboretum, a great location that will only get better as the trees grow.
Rain during the week settled the track surface nicely, just a couple of soft spots where machinery had loosened the track.
Felt really good after yesterday's outing in the Namadgi National Park. A good solid run from near the back at the start, caught plenty after the turnaround except Ewen & Janene in particular.
Stopped at Pine Is for 22 minutes in the cool water which has helped plenty.
Bit low on the weekly kms but a rest day on Tuesday and a short run before a massage on Friday were both needed. I should benefit from both next week.


  • Good course (if I could run up hills). Saw you coming but timed my finish to perfection, thus avoiding a long queue to get my number AND name recorded.

  • You slowed down nicely Ewen to avoid getting third place. Good work.

  • Ha ha, I just gave them my number (cloth one visible) and told them they didn't need my name ;o). It was quick, despite the standing around and waiting for those in front of me to give their name and number. Look at that - my name appeared in the results.

    I agree with Ewen, good course if one could run hills. I wonder how many people next year will choose this one as their 'volunteer' one?

  • I'm volunteering for at least four of them next year.
