Running 34:51 [3] 5.79 km (6:01 / km)

Morning jog. Seeing if I can still run. I can, slowly. New shoes.

Friday Nov 8 #

Running (stairs) 14:21 [3]

Didn't "run" at all, but still not actually that slow. Not sure whether this is the best recovery from 4 Peaks...

What else would you rather do at 7.30pm at work on a Friday?

Tuesday Nov 5 #

Running 1:28:30 [3] 10.73 km (8:15 / km)

Bright 4 Peaks, day 4, Mystic

Passed lots of people on the climbs, then had quite a few come past on the undulating section.

Expected more people to come past me on the downhill - a few did, but I even passed a couple on the way to the finish.

I was only 20s off my time from 2 years ago on the last downhill 3.4km (and 40s slower on the steep part) - must have lost a lot of speed on the climbing :(

Note

Somehow the hills are getting steeper, or I'm getting more unfit.

Definitely felt unfit this year, and am holding work partly to blame (either being there too late to train, or being too tired). Got to fix that.

A bit worried for Eureka Climb in 1.5 weeks - may have to do some lowering of expectations.

Monday Nov 4 #

Running 2:42:28 [3] 14.95 km (10:52 / km)

Bright 4 Peaks, day 3, Hotham

Again, the legs were feeling heavy at the start. After yesterday, was into the race biscuits before even reaching the creek.

Surprisingly, I was only 2 mins down on my time from last year from the trailhead to the creek (maybe because I didn't have to wade the creek this year!).

Struggled up the walls (particularly the 2nd one).

Found my happy place in the last km and came past some walkers and a few runners.
