|Parts of DF Rd with top soil washed away...no wonder my legs are weary!|
Well, for me it was!
Program : 24km @ 7:41m/k
|Other sections as lovely as ever!|
I found it difficult to get started again after such a long break, but the coffee kicked in and I soon got back into some sort of rhythm and by 16km I was back where I started. Short stop for a gel and water and then off around Renwick for the last 8km. I thought the final 4km would never end, I was so tired; but it did end thankfully right back where I started over 3 hours earlier....and that's not counting the long coffee break!
The outcome of this long day : 24km in 3:13:04
Avg. Pace 8:03m/k
5km splits: 41:14; 40 :58; 40:22; 39:12; and 4k in 31:16.
I feel very tired tonight, but it was a glorious day to be out!
