Ultimate Running Date #40

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.

This meant my last long training run before Surf Coast would be the 16km club run. 

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).
