Net slow, Runs easy
It looks like I will be without my car for at least two weeks so I will be racking up some Ks in this time. My Wife has been dropping me at work in the mornings and I have been running home in the evening. It is about 14.6K.
Well on Monday night, what do you think happens? For the first time in what seems ages it is raining! Not just a drizzle but a big storm front rolled in late afternoon and it looked like it was going to be a very wet run home. But tracking it on the BOM radar showed if I waited 30 minutes, the worst of it would be over. The only down side to this was that I would have to run in the dark along the bike path or else run by the road which I hate. I elected to go for the dark and it turned out not too bad. As well I hardly got wet at all as the rain passed.
Running home from work entails crossing four major roads before getting to Bowen Bridge. This is a bit over 2ks and it took me 15 minutes! From there it is the return course where I have been running my long runs on Sunday. The only difference is that on a Sunday morning you don't have to stop to cross Kelvin Grove Rd but it can take up to 2 minutes for the signal to cross at peak hour. On Monday in the dark the run from Bowen Bridge took 70:28 and it measured just over 12.5K.
I have now done this again on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mon 85:34 BB to home 70:28 (HR 134 Pace 5:36).
Tue 82:17 BB to home 69:39 (HR 138 Pace 5:32).
Wed 79:20 BB to home 68:30 (HR 136 Pace 5:28).
Some anwers to questions.
Number of CDs not yet litened to?
I stopped counting when I got to 50. (Sigh). Luckily I put 9 on my new music player, and I have classified them as listened to even though some are only once so far. Too much music, too little time.
What sort of snake was it?
A Carpet Python but technically Morelia Spilota. Relatively harmless unless you are a mouse, rat or possum.
After the rain this week, I have you down for the first bout of wrestling. My girls will go tag team against you. If you beat them, then Kewell's groupies will be the second bout.
