Corporate Cup 2008 – Run 1 – 4.5km Bike Path

Disgusting.  That is what the weather was like today.  On the plus side it kept the punters away so it wasn’t so crowded, but the walkers all had HUGE umbrellas, which can be dangerous for a guy like me.Race Corporate Cup (Torrens) 6-08-2008

This city course is completely different to the Mawson Lakes course.  It is much tougher because of the undulating terrain, and especially today trying not to slip up in the mud.

Today was all about setting a reasonable base time to work off.  I set off with one of my team mates and slipped into a Race Corporate Cup (Torrens) 6-08-2008, Pacerhythm with pretty even pacing while dodging walkers with umbrellas and puddles covering the whole path…well I didn’t dodge them, I ran straight through.  No one really went racing passed us, maybe 2 or 3 and everyone looked rather sodden.  The pace was just below what I would call my thresh-hold…or the point were I have to push to keep the pace up.  Once I started pushing the pace I think the sharp up-hills are going to hurt a lot…especially up to Frome Rd.

Next time I think I might aim for 5min/k.
