|Thank goodness for the downhill finish :-) - Mount Ainslie|
Today we had the monthly ACTVAC handicap at Mount Ainslie. Conditions were pretty well perfect. Clear sunny skies, cool conditions and no wind. This was meant to be a 'long run' albeit at a quicker pace than I might normally try to do a long run at. This meant, no warm up pre-run, just using the first 1-2 km, then a bit of a push in the middle before trying to ease up at the end. Now with that big hill towards then end, it's not that easy to ease up, even at a walk (and that I did!). With that approach this was my slowest time on that course by several minutes. That should mean an improved handicap! A lovely brunch to finish off the morning with Ruth, Mr B, Margaret, et al! Now to get in an afternoon MTB ride to rack up some GCC steps.
