Short answer, NO, long answer, maybe... So how did this last week go?
Monday, easy forest run, recovery after the cycle tour on Sunday.
Tuesday, 15x400m good session 75sec ave...
Wednesday, 15km midweek long... Run nicely.
Thursday, hills and more hills... 6 hard and 1 easy, ave 2:10..
Friday, easy morning run.
Saturday, wanted a long run, but has 'stuff' to do in town, so I hatched a plan... How about a run when I was finished! So at about 10:00 I put my stuff in my pack and set off for a run from KLOOF NEK.. and headed for:
|Table Mountain behind me|
From there I still needed a bit of distance to I had to Signal Hill
|Lion's Head to the right, it looks a long way up...|
before heading back. I was out for 1hour 20 and had only run 13km. Not really enough km but long enough of the clock...
Sunday, what a busy day: I was on the road just after 07h00 (1km later I was in the Green Belt) heading for the mountain. I headed up the green belts to Cecilia Forest and then up Cecilia Ravine (forest stairs!!!)
|Not my picture and not me in the picture...|
I kept a slow jog up and down and up and up, then up again to the Bridle Path and up over the bridge and the tap, turning when Mr Garmin said 10km (64:20, 690m climb) ran back on the 'road' to the Nek and the back home through Die Hell. 22km (again not long enough), but 1h59:59 was plenty
Church at 10h00 and then off the the African Cross Country Champs... it was all it bit of a rush, but we got the see the :
