I know it's impossible to work out what this photo is about!
When I took the 2 dogs for their walk in the paddocks behind Renwick soccer field (all this eventually to be for housing), I noticed that the new mother cows had separated themselves from the main herd & had set up their own nursery here for their newly born calves. They are the few tiny, barely visible, black specks three-quarters of the way back!
I didn't go closer for fear of disturbing them, but I watched fascinated as the new mothers nuzzled their babies, watched over them, lay down to sleep with them, fed them & moved them across the paddock teaching them how to graze. For me, there was something very heart-warming - & almost brought a tear -to witness the nurturing & love these new mums gave their little calves.
But....... on to today's training : Program : 40 minutes at a "comfortble" pace.
Renwick soccer field for stretches & a few strides.
Started there on Bong Bong Road, left into Old South Road & kept going for 20 minutes, turn around & back to the start. Details from Motion Based are:
Time = 40 minutes.
Distance = 5.75km
Avg HR = 83%
Avg. Pace = 7:00; Max. = 6:39; Best = 5:33
Stretches in the soccer field.
I felt I should have been faster as I put a little more effort into the 40 minutes than usual. I don't think I'm ready to run out of sight yet! We'll see what Ewen thinks!
