Park Run (Callaghan - pebblecrete) 39:25  5.0 km (7:53 / km)
shoes: bright pink
No warm up as it was raining and I wasn't intending to run, just walk. I love walking (and running) in the rain, but I was also conflicted as I had a meeting to chair commencing at 10 with a shower and 2 drives of 15 mins to fit in after finishing. Managed to see Alexa beforehand and gave her some bush maps to study. Chatted with Michael C also - finally met up with him from my previous professional life of Science Communication.
Quite (but understandable) small turnout and I was just going to walk. But when Magic said "GO" I was off (no warm up, no meds, no planning) in the drizzle. Got to the first section of pebblecrete and it was WHOA steady on here. And so it was for the whole time. Walked pebblecrete areas of which there are many it being a Uni campus and all. But when the opportunity arose I couldn't help myself... sad really. Happy with things going that way but the most treacherous was the pebblecrete around the Union which both cambered and sloped. That was fun.
Comparing times for usual and today's dedicated walking and running - pretty dismal really.
Start-steps Rainforest walk -11:41 Back to the originally planned route taking in Comm Bank.
Steps - cone 7:59 (19:40) Ran fairly well through rainforest area and managed to run up the last of the track hill.Not a whole lot different.
Cone - steps Rainforest Walk 6:52 (26:32) Huge improvement and also no pebblecrete that worried me (ie ran on roads... ooops naughty). Maybe not as fatigued.
Steps - Finish - 12:53 (39:25) Quite surprised to be under 40, just. Some sections fairly happy with.
So that makes it run #98. Hopefully #99 cooks river and #100 back at Callaghan.
