Back to the airport for attempt no 2 at getting to gold coast. Acejase is worried about getting 'shopping legs' so had to take an escalator down a short flight of stairs. Have done comparison of qantas and virgin lounges, qantas was more classy.

Running 22:58 [3] 5.0 km (4:36 / km)
shoes: Nike lunar racer

Finally at the gold coast so did a short run either acejase checking the start area. 23 degrees, so shorts and t-shirt weather. Legs felt crap to start with but loosened up by the end. Then collected numbers and went through the expo, but found no bargains.

Bilbys warm up warm up/down 23:07 [3] 2.14 km (10:48 / km) +1m 10:46 / km
shoes: lunar racer+

Running intervals 19:07 [4] 5.01 km (3:49 / km)
shoes: lunar racer+

Bilbys intervals - not exactly warm this evening so I had the beanie out for a lot of the time. A big crowd tonight - even gramps was there. I just did the short set of 3x 800(200), 3x 400(100). Seeing as it was a bit of a sharpener for the weekend I did them at a sharp pace. Had nuru and jack with me on the first, they went away on the second, then jack dropped back for the third as nuru was winding the speed up a lot. I reckon this would have been quicker in the other lunar racers....
Splits: 2.44, 2.43, 2.42, 80, 80, 79
Easy now for the rest of the week.

Running 24:32 [3] 5.4 km (4:33 / km)
shoes: lunar racer+

Home from work via the post office to collect a wiggle parcel which contained a new pair of lunar racers so took them for a half lap of o'connor. They felt pretty good, although when I got home I discovered the '+' is for weighing more, they are 200g whereas my old ones are 175 - so I know which pair I'll be taking to gold coast. Now to put the new MTB tyre that was in the wiggle box onto my bike.

Running race 17:22 [5] 5.0 km (3:28 / km) +42m 3:20 / km
shoes: X-talon 190

Canada day fun run. Seeing as I'm doing the half next weekend I decided to just do the 5km as a bit of a sharpener before next weekend. Good cockies turnout of acejase, miss jones, BigD, grantm, lucymcg and marymac. The start was a bit delayed due to a queue of people waiting to enter, then more waiting for the timing people to get ready, followed by more waiting while someone tried to get us to do some warmup exercises, then there was another wait as the 5km was started a few minutes after the 10km. When we eventually got underway I was out on my own at the front straightaway, but within about 500m I was into the back of the 10km field, the rest of the first lap was spent threading my way through, mainly off the edge of the track. It was a bit less crowded on the second lap, managed to catch miss jones (doing the 10km) about halfway round so knew I was going well although I hadn't been looking at my watch. Was quite surprised to get 17.22 which I think is a 5km pb (I know .... Stromlo is only 4.92km), so a good confidence boost for next weekend. Good run by jase to get 2nd in the 5km and miss jones and BigD doing the double for the cockies in the 10km. Traditional pancakes after then the pressos where I got a massage voucher.

Running warm up/down 5:28 [2] 0.84 km (6:30 / km) +8m 6:13 / km
