Drove out to Braidwood as girls were doing horse riding in morning. Belinda planned a run for us at a State forest but on the drive there we realised it was too far away from Saddle Camp in the time we had available so we picked the nearest thing we could find - a forest trail that turned out to be on the edge of the Deua National park. Did a fun out and back on a fire trail with both of us going out for 30mins or so and back again. Track was along a ridge line so good 6 ft training. I was testing my race shoes for 6ft and started getting a bit excited running down the hills to the point that this run could nearly be called a tempo run. Was good particularly to practice running downhill faster. Ran for an hour and then sprint back to Saddle Camp (we were late...).

2nd half of my long run day this time back at home. Continued downhill practice theme with new shoes doing, more or less, an interval down Black Mtn push-bike hill track. Was fun to run downhill fast.

Parkrun Gindy. Started well with UTA50k t-shirt shooting off the front and James passing him after 500m. Good pace with a couple of guys on shoulder. 2nd k a bit slow due to losing focus I think, responded with over compensation and fast 3rd k (3.31). NorthFace100k t shirt roared past me up the "hill" (really a rise) in the 3rd k but I realled him back in. He did the same in the 4th up Didhams Close but again passed him on the bridge. Finished very strongly and pleased with time - 20s faster than other ParkRuns this year. Cooler weather and easing off a little in training seem to be the difference.
