Running 36:23  7.1 km (5:07 / km)
shoes: Kayano 23
Storms had been ripping through all morning with heavy rain, thunder and lightning. However, it all settled down just when I wanted to head out for a run so managed to avoid getting a soaking or being struck by lightning. Still, the rain made for a very wet track and very humid atmosphere, so sweated buckets. Continued the comeback with a return to the weekly tempo runs. To kick things off, I did a 3km stint aiming for 4.25-4.30/km. didn't go too badly for the first couple of km, covering these in 4.28 and 4.26, but then died a little on the last km with 4.39, at least partly because it was up a gradual incline that just sucked any remaining energy form my legs. Still, a good solid session, continuing the build-up to the London race.
I also entered for the Australian Orienteering Championships on 30 Sep. Looking forward to running again in gold-mining terrain - I think the last time I ran in such terrain would be at least 20 years ago, if not longer!
