Easy runs with four runners is never going to happen….

You know the email ‘call to arms’. 10K easy, recovering from <insert race> or <big week last week> etc.. With my lunchtime running buddies I receive these emails all the time, promising nice relaxing runs all about recovery and the ambience of like minded individual doing what they enjoy. Don’t be fooled, somewhere in the group there will be someone who has not read the email and then it’s on.. Today our 10k easy ended up with a 4:16min/k average, just under 43 minutes. Easy for Mo Farrah maybe,  not me.! It was a glorious day and we had a tail wind before the hills but seriously…

 

I run with a group called the “St. Georges Terrace Running Club” as we are all based on, you guessed it, St. Georges Terrace in Perth. We’ve even had some tops made, pretty serious.

 

Attached is a shot of the usual suspects on one of our many pre-marathon ‘pb runs’ as we call them…
