Sunday Jan 7 #

9 AM

Running (Terrain/Soft) 2:31:05 [1] 24.78 km (6:06 / km) +623m 5:25 / km
shoes: Asics Cumulus 16 #7 (White)

Long run with Brodie, Will and Pat.

The first hour or so was very nice on top of big grassy spurs and nice tracks. Then we did a bit of bush-bashing to get over to a scrubby ridge where the map said there was a path. The remaining hour was totally grim. The path hardly existed and was very overgrown with lots of hidden rocks, it was very hot and we were all dying of tiredness and dehydration.

Eventually made it down to a river at the end and collapsed in it for a good while. Not the long run I was aiming for but a good challenge nonetheless. Totally wrecked now.

shoes: Asics DSTrainer 20 (Mental)

Classic Falls thursday session with the main group.
8x 400m, 200m float.

The reps were out and back on one of the aquaduct trails and it was absolutely heaving with probably over 200 people running. The sort of aim was to run 5km pace for the 400s, but it was a difficult surface to really get moving on and there was often a lot of traffic in both directions to avoid. The float was so quick on the first rep that I actually didn't realise where the rep had finished!

Tough session but a good one too. Cool experience.

Running (Threshold) 12:00 [4] 3.13 km (3:50 / km) +19m 3:43 / km
shoes: Asics DSTrainer 20 (Mental)

Few minutes rest then 2x 5min T. Dying tbh.

Running 44:34 [1] 8.1 km (5:30 / km) +169m 4:59 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 32 (L Green)

Nice easy yog up the hill and along the frying pan handle spur thing with Tash, Will and Pat. Lovely views, easy pace.

Easy run with the big running group from Langford's Gap along the aquaduct. Nice and chill on a very pleasant flat trail.
5 PM

Core Training 40:00 [1]

Will's circuit session. Fairly tough. Included a few calf raises which I haven't done in a while, without issue.

Did a load of stretching and had a solid calf massage after.

11 AM

Running 1:41:33 [3] 24.22 km (4:12 / km) +108m 4:06 / km
shoes: Nike Pegasus 32 (L Green)

Taking it a bit easier in the first few days up here so didn't do the group intervals. Took a nice long run up to Langford's Gap, 6 miles Raz out and back on the aquaduct, then home. Felt good on the faster stuff, then died a bit on the way home. Haven't had much consistency on the long runs in recent weeks.

Lovely weather, views, etc.

Went for a run back around yesterday's area. Very nice. Found a kingfisher with an injured wing sitting on the track near the end.
7 PM

Running 57:34 [2] 12.02 km (4:47 / km) +210m 4:24 / km
shoes: Asics Cumulus 16 #7 (White)

Drove a long way down to Falls Creek today, picking up Mr Ed Nicholas on the way.

When we got there we went for an easy run along the aquaduct which was very lovely. Then I added on a bit up wishing well to the top.

Think I could feel the altitude a bit. At 1600m for the next 11 days.
