I need to find extra distance mid week to help with those long weekend training sessions.
I will now, where possible, run a couple of mid week longish runs, on a Tuesday & a Thursday. Wednesday will be a quicker session either at Calwell oval on on the gravel track behind Bonython. I prefer the grass of lane 5, but either will do.
Today, I ran thru Gordon from work, then on the high side of Tharwa Dr to Calwell High School, past the shops to home for lunch. Back via Bonython and Pine Is to make up a reasonable distance.
A good run, felt Ok all the way. A bit of altitude gain going up Tharwa Dr, slowish as I didn't push the pace.
I can always go on the Conder side of Tuggie Hill if I get myself organised better instead of socialising over a coffee before I head out. That would make the distance closer to 20 kms, a nice round figure.
