Walk 57: Cruise control

Some showers in the morning meant it was once again quite humid, but for the walk it was sunny and the temperature around 19C, so perfectly pleasant.

As has become my custom, I am now running an even two km on the way back from the end of the river trail and the pace for these two km was 5:50/km and 5:51/km, so I found a good pace and stayed with it. I actually kept running most of the way back after that–through Lower Hume Park and then along Fader Street (my shins especially notice the difference between running on a gravel trail vs. a concrete sidewalk and the difference can be summed up mostly as, “Don’t run on this really hard stuff.”

As I neared the condo, I experienced the first real taste of “I could keep going” since resuming my runs. It was nice.

I also just squeaked under the 8:00/km mark for overall average pace–not that I need to keep going faster and faster, but it’s still a fun thing to see.

The rest of the week looks a bit soggy. We’ll see how the runs go.
