Run 1min/Walk 1min + 3.6km Hike

Distance:2.18 km
Avg Pace:8:16 min/km
Elevation Gain:23 m

Test. Felt good. Sore from yesterdays popliteus massage, but otherwise no worries. Really would have liked to run more.

Saw Dr James Harrison, former 4 x 10000m national champion. Basically thought that I've probably pushed it a bit seeing that I've only got two and a bit years of actual running done. Emphasised strength,  particularly dynamic strength like hill bounding etc - drills, technique, shoes, softer or more varied surfaces. Didn't feel a need for any further testing - can't wait to see what the physio says, but I'm in agreement - just waiting to see the pod next week.

Distance:3.60 km
Avg Pace:14:15 min/km
Elevation Gain:114 m
Easy bush walk.

More trees.
