Robert Song's Running

I'm over 50 and been running off and on since 1968. I have run everything from 800m to 10k on the track, to half marathons (PB 1:21 Brisbane 1993) and marathons (PB 2:53 Gold Coast 1985).

Friday Long Run

24.7k 2:13:31. HR Avg 147 Max 158
Course: Work to Riverside Centre and Back , Sydney St and Back.
Start Time: 4:40 pm Temp 19C.
Session Type: Long Run

This is the course for my run tonight. The inital 15k is from work to the Riverside Centre and back. The second 10k (in green) is from work to Sydney Street Ferry and back. It is mostly on paths by the river and so avoids traffic and is very scenic.

The first loop I ran with John in 1:21:19 (avgHR 138, 5:30 m/K). The second loop I did alone in 52:12 (avgHR148 5:22 m/K). So speed up a little by myself but still running very much within myself.

Today was the end of my two week course of antibiotics, so it was good to celebrate my recovery with a long run. And one less tablet to take in the mornings now. Now only have to down the Headache pill (isoptin), the multi-vitamin tablet, the 1000mg Evening Primrose capsule, the 250 mg Vit B5 tablet, the 500 mg Vit C tablet and the 10g Glucosamine/MSM powder in apple juice drink!
