You can take a picture of something you see

Let's talk, let's ta-a-alk
There was lots of talking in the summer series run around Lake Ginninderra last night. Firstly the path was blocked before the footbridge and the organising team had to make a last minute change to the course. Much discussion. Then I decided to be prudent and run around fives in the seven km run as I was doing 21km altogether (Tuesday is my long day) and I had had three hard days in a row (thus breaking one of my rules already). Much encouraging of other competitors.

Do something that's never been done

I hadn't run with Aki at the end of a race before. She has pretty good pace judgement these days. And a devastating sprint finish! My talking only annoyed her a little. (But how can you encourage people without talking?)

Oh brother

.. I got tired by the end of the 21km. But at least the temperature had dropped by the finish.

In the future where will I be?

Think I will ease off now and see if I can achieve this year's 1500m target (5:20) on Saturday.

You tell anyone who'll listen but you feel ignored
