Sunday was the easy recovery run, just to roll along and find out if there were any problems from the long run on Saturday. Nothing wrong, just tired, nothing unusual about that.
Today, being a public holiday, Calwell oval was vacant. I headed down there to run a few laps at a slow tempo pace. No fast stuff needed at the moment.
Lane 5 is Ok with the grass short & the under surface just soft enough to be nice to run on. Too cold to go bare feet, had to leave the running shoes on which would a first for a long time on grass.
Ran 35 laps in lane 5, stopped for a drink after each 10 laps & to change direction. The cold wind meant 3 layers to start, then the jacket came off after a while. Not the nicest day to be out, but that's another few kms done & banked in winter.
