I'm not running any long distances on days like today. I still needed to do something, but as my lunch break started at 10:30, it was getting hot.
I headed to Calwell oval where the grass is green, soft, lush & cut. Just perfect for bare foot running.
A big distance wasn't required, just going a little faster then slow weekend pace.
The wind was the biggest factor this morning. Both direction & strength didn't help. It was blowing across the track so only around 30 metres of help at the bottom of the track. Head down to keep hat on was the next problem.
Slow pace, but comfortable for 15 laps plus a cool down.
Nothing special at all, enjoyable, but what I did was enough.
