A bit of cross country

It's been ages since I took part in any sort of running event. Injury and travelling have kept me away. The YCRC Spring Series started on Tuesday out at Stromlo Forest Park a perfect opportunity to catch up with some running acquaintances. There were lots of familiar faces and a good turn out for the first event of the Spring Series. I had intended to jog the 5 km, but it's tough trying to ignore the numbers, so the compromise was more of a tempo run to go sub 25 mins for the 5km. I'll be honest and say it wasn't an easy run. However, the conditions were good and the grass was inviting. A nice way to spend a Tuesday evening. Here's hoping the weather is kind for the other Spring series events.

  1. Good to see you out there. That's a pretty good time! Only 1:12 slower than the one in March yet if I recall correctly you were doing much more running training prior to that one.

    At last - Google have updated the Stromlo map!
