Craig Davis ran another 5k PB, this time on the grassy hills at Stromlo in cool, humid, windy conditions. For the rest of us, it was a tempo run whose tempo was a bit fast - Ewen & I were a full minute ahead of "schedule" 1500m in!

My splits for the two lap, undulating course: kms 4:25, 4:31, 4:49, 4:29, 4:39; laps 11:22, 11:31.

Yay, still no return of the heel soreness. A rest day is planned for today (i.e. one hour in the gym and an easy run when the rain stops).

If you have a choice of two races in a week like this, when rain is around, always run the first (yesterday's 5000m), because the second (tomorrow's 1500m) may be washed out. We shall see.
