11km @ LT pace (6:41 for me)
I did 2 km extra this morning because I felt good and the misty rain was so pleasant for running.
|Today's 13km run.|
I ran the first and last kilometre around the Highlands School; the rest through Renwick and surrounding streets. I stopped for a minute or two to 'talk' to two friendly dogs that have come to know me; one is the biggest Weimaraner I've ever seen and the other one, a tiny terrier...a very odd couple! I mention them because I made the mistake of stopping my Garmin and, of course, forgot to turn it on again, probably best part of a kilometre later! Stupid thing to do, especially as I have 'auto pause' set for any time I stop. It shows by a red line on the map. Anyhow, I'm only claiming 13km even if I did more...to teach me a lesson!
13km in 90 minutes exactly
7:22; 6:51, 56, 31, 45, 47, 51, 7:00, 7:18, 7:06 ....hilly bits...6:58, 56, 7:01
Avg. Pace 6:50
That completes 5 weeks of 12 with 5 weeks to go till Fishers Ghost 5km at Campbelltown and 7 weeks till 5km race in Canberra.
For 3 key workouts this week : 28.5km (excl. any cross-training).
