Sunday Late Edition!
Well, I did my long run after all! Jim went in for a nap and there was my chance for a getaway at 2:45pm. I don't think I've ever run so late in the day but ever so glad I did - it was a brilliant afternoon: very cool, overcast with mist drifting in over the ranges. Not a soul to be seen on Diamond Fields Road; just me, cows and horses in the paddocks and the wonderful perfume of the bush and trees. I was almost converted to afternoon running but I think I'd let too much other business get in the way if I were to change. For this afternoon, though, it was perfect!
15km @ 7:23 m/k
15km @ avg. 7:23 m/k! Right on the dot!
Best pace 5:18
AHR 122 (77%); MHR 145 (91%)
5km laps = 36:41; 37:34; 36:52
After all the fuss and bother about running or not running today, I felt really good for the whole 15k and for the first time ever I had the pace right on target! Diamond Fields Road is hilly, has some flat, long inclines and a few fast downhills - all the ingredients for a great run! I took some pics but it was a little too overcast for good photos.
