ahr:158 max:180 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17
Novelty rogaine with Dave - Started very strong in northeast - then swung quickly back to middle up to top and cleared west Perth - Goal was to be back up to Jacobs at the 2 hours mark - I died a bit thought between 33-37 and was all downhill from there. Were 10 mins behind at Jacobs but we had done more than we expected so was ok - the goal was to be out of the park by 3hr mark.
Struggled big time up from mounts bay road and we decided to drop 109 and leave that for way back in. came out of park at 3:10 so still 10 down. put in a very optimistic route for the next part and given how much I was in the hurt locker at this point probably should have gone for less.
Finished 5 minutes late and I was beyond spent. but we kinda got what we had wanted too.
Had to leave before the results as Will was being a lil shit and I didn't have the energy to do anything about it - but apparently, the results where all over the shop scoring wise. Oh well its a novelty care factor wasnt too high was more getting out and having a crack. Underlined how unfit I am atm. Even though the pace from 2 years ago is 8:58 vs 9:23 so I think about 700m and 5 less minutes so really not too far off it!
The difference was yesterday I couldn't stomach food in the evening just felt sick and my body was destroyed all over - in bed by 9 up at 7 still feel sore/broken. Meanwhile, casual stroll for Dave :P swear his a fair bit fitter since the last time we went out even.
Also to put things in perspective:
that's the longest distance I have done on foot or bike since Feb USD. which was 34km over 8hrs - had a reasonably bad training year! < keep saying it need to do something about it!
