6.00pm 11km Roo+ Lake 38m56s WORLD RECORD!
Last night I went to a party and had a skin full and didn't feel good till beyond midday! Consequently I skipped the idea of a track session or K's intervals on the road and decided to run my stock standard training session,. I went out with the purpose of making it a hard fast run.
The first K was under 3m50 and I managed to crank up the pace. Stepped over a snake AGAIN!
Must be something about the time of day that when ever I run at sunset the snakes must be waking up and starting to hunt. I got to some markers about 7K into the run which confirmed I was on a quickie so worked really hard. I'm convinced that I'm running pretty much race pace.
38m56 equals my best ever time over the course. Good punishment for drinking too many beers last night.
Do you see any resemblance between me and this guy?
I worked with someone who was convinced I was a dead ringer for this fellow!! Cant see it myself other than thin scull like face!!
This is Peter Weller now; (Typical Hollywood!!)
