25km Long Run

Distance:25.01 km
Avg Pace:5:21 min/km
Elevation Gain:620 m

My wannabe Lydiard Waiatarua long run. Such a killer ascent. Misjudged the distance so ended up with an extra km. A bit of a monster. Had to power walking a tiny bit of the hill right towards the end, not for too long though. Chafed badly. Bought Bodyglide from ebay and its shit quality, not working.

Interesting run as you move up into a different type of bushland and then up into the little european-esque enclave of Mt Lagoon where its and avenue of foreign, deciduous trees (can't remember the species - looks kinda like maple). At one tiny point where you can look out you can see mountains stretching far, far north.

Wildlife count: Two black wallabies, one brush turkey, one peacock (up in Mt Lagoon - random), one goanna.
