Wednesday 5.00am 11Km Roo+Lake 45m40
Slightly quicker than last couple of days - felt OK!.
Still very cold, I went to work with a Tee Shirt under my shirt for the first time this year.
I've been wondering what sort of time I could run a Half Mara in.
When I made a comeback to running aged 29/30 I ran two half's with no appropriate training and only the goal of completing and competing! I won both these events in around 71min.
Today what could I do? I think 35min ten K's plus 3m30 is the slowest time I'd consider OK = 73m30,
34min ten K's for a 71m30 would be a very good return.
70m17 would be Australian M45 Record!
The beauty of taking on a 'new' event is, I've really got know idea!, I can talk about aiming for the moon but as far as reality is concerned I may as well be talking to the Man In the Moon!!
I'm convinced that my speed endurance is pretty good and perhaps given the right conditions, race wise, I might surprise some people.
