The title to this post could have been:-
The same again, or
Almost to the exact second, or
Jerrabomberra wetlands, or
A slow run.
But I used the title above because yesterday it was the last Vets Monthly Handicap for the year.
7kms, over an "out and Back" course at Innabaanya, off the Majura Road, and in the Majura pine plantation.
My rate overall was at 6 min 16 sec pace, and ran with Julie for a greater part of the run.
She started one group behind, and we had a nice chat for the remainder of the run, except for the last km, when she had the strength laft on the last hill before the final turn.
I now know her plans for the next few years.
While out on the run, a couple of cyclists waited for us to pass, it turned out that one of them was Julie's friend. It's a small world isn't it.
Today's run was the East Basin and Jerrabomberra Wetlands loop around LBG.
Saw Alice and Val walking near the lake, passed the race walker near Molonglo Gorge, and heard Frogs and Birds greeting the day in the Wetlands. Little Ducks were nowhere to be seen, perhaps they are big ducks now, and a swan was standing on one leg, practicing for swan Lake perhaps.
The time taken for this run was meant to be slow, but in fact, turned out nearly identical to the run a few weeks previously, at 1 hour 33 mins 13 secs, only 2 seconds slower than the previous time.
Until Next Time
