Corporate Cup 2008 – Run 6 – 4.5km bike path

Race Corporate Cup (Torrens) 6-08-2008
Today I didn’t set the garmin to a specific pace, I just wanted to get out there and run.  I therefore started out at an easy pace working the legs into some sort of rhythm, but after being overtaken by a team mate and then another runner I stepped on the gas and tacked onto the back of the second runner.  My team mate was about 50m in front and I held onto the back of the runner for dear life slowly making ground up.
Race Corporate Cup (Torrens) 15-10-2008, Pace Although there was a refreshing breeze, the sun was out and by the 4th kilometer I had reached my current capacity and was stuck 10m behind my target.  It stayed like that until the last 500m when I ran up to his shoulder and then tried to up the pace over the last couple of 100m.  This felt like it occurred but who knows what it looked like to those watching on.  Overall I came in at my now usual time of 22min51sec.  Two more weeks till my last opportunity to show some improvement.
After work I pulled on the runners again and took the dogs for a 4k run, which is always fun because they pull me along at a faster than normal pace but I get to stop occasionally for doggy doo’s and tangled leads.
