With September well and truly behind us it’s time to catch up for our monthly running date.
After Surf Coast Century I went on holidays for 2 weeks, it was a much needed holiday, that we all needed as a family.
Which is one of the reasons why this catch up is so late.
August was a key training month, but it also saw me catch a virus that first week of September.
My plan prior to getting unwell was to run this at (road) race pace. Anywhere from 4:55 to 5:10.
Instead, I decided to keep my pace easy and reassess my running after each 4km lap.
I finished the 16km in a respectable time of 1h28m / 5:33 pace.
Now for the biggest event for 2017 Surf Coast Century.
Well, it was epic and I loved it. Check out my race review here if you haven’t already done so.
While on holidays I also participated in the Camel to Club run. It involves beach running, but the sand was super soft and just plain awful. If I ever do this again, I’ll choose the 5km option (which removes the beach section).
