Running with Hanna for her 1500m virtual challenge. Only about 300m in we saw dog walkers ahead with a dog off the lead so that was enough to panic Hanna unfortunately. They weren’t really a threat, so bit of a shame. At least she kept going though likely lost about half a minute. So difficult to find somewhere quiet and fast locally.

Another SA 3k virtual challenge. Was hoping to beat previous time and tried a different course configuration starting at top of hill, going up & down Avalon Gardens, Justinhaugh loop, then finish towards home. Ended up 6 seconds slower despite feeling ok and working hard. Difficult to asses how good/bad or otherwise, really missing a proper race on a measured course. Finally had enough of the old racing flats and ordered a pair of NB1400s afterwards. Not quite ready for carbon shoes yet though a racer with any cushioning will be a start. Conditions ok - murky, cool with an east breeze.
