This week was not about me. It was checking & rechecking the two courses to be used today ( Sunday) for the Australian mountain running championships on Mt Wellington behind Hobart in Tasmania.
Good weather during the week allowed for a jog check on Tuesday followed by a very slow ( over 6 hrs) to marking both courses on Friday. Really had to make sure everyone knew where to go on race day.
Today, the nice weather disappeared at race time. But with clouds & a bit of wind, temps were great for running even if the views were somewhat lacking.
I was on officials duties today, so no running.
I have Convicts & Wenches 50 km race to do in 2 weeks time, so need to find some flat speed.
Otherwise, all good on the running front. Summer has gone so we now just wait until winter weather brings some snow. Hoping for as good as we had last year.

  • Well done Steve - you are always putting back into the sport. From the mountains to the beaches - good luck in the Convicts and Wenches.

  • Well done Steve. Interesting that the winner of the 10k last night was a former world mountain running champion.

  • The strength gained from all that up hill is what helps the good ones maintain or get faster over the final stages. It's not all about speed.
