24 km this morning on what I still call a very hilly course, though it's in perspective now after 6ft track, which brought out the worst & best in that order : giving in, throwing up & then keeping on going up!
A very pleasant start at 8:00a.m. : mist first, then cloud cover, some sun & a cool breeze out & back. I took the 2 litre Camelbak (very comfortable) to get used to using it again for "Beyond the Black Stump - a bloody good bush run" on New Year's Day. Since I drank all but a couple of mouthfuls, I'll need to refill and/or carry extra on the day; also used 1 gel.
I fast walked up most of the hills & took a 1 minute walk break after each km mark (excuse if I need one: it's only 2 weeks since 6ft track & still a bit tired in the legs!); this meant 'time on feet' was a solid 3 hours 35 minutes!
A little more than the usual tired at the end!
