Typically bikes go faster than runners...

Which is why running along a bike path sucks. I should have just decided to ride to parents'!

Suspect the boring route was not too far removed from what I was doing in the later stages of this, although by then I was probably too tired to notice. (I haven't gone longer in training since).

So, even before I click the link I know that's going to be the run you did from a conference at Glenelg to Hawthorndene and back in about Feb 2008 (and startled Robin Uppill watering her front garden)?

Yes, that's the one. At that stage I barely knew the southern and western suburbs of Adelaide so was possibly a little more ambitious than might have been wise, but it worked out more or less OK.

Were you running <3hr marathons back then?
Apr 19, 2020 8:09 AM # 
Yes - ran 2.52s both before and after.

Maybe I should try one before I get too old and/or slow.
