We’re nearly one year on. Where were you when you heard? It was one of those events. I was in Auckland, it popped up on someone’s phone, and we all thought it was a joke. Not a very fun… Source: Da…

Ran Montgomery Ave to Skyline Walkway, then northbound until after the Chartwell turnoff, then back and down Park Vale Rd to supermarket. Good run, listening to Mitski and Sturgill Simpson. Feeling strong – found climbing the uphill section before Johnston’s Hill easier than usual. Had to slow for the odd cow.

40 minute slow run, with 15 minute tempo run in the middle. Ran the 15 minutes around Karori Park, goal was to keep pace at 4:15m/km; mostly managed this but faded at the end, suggesting I am pushing slightly above my ability. Second and third fastest Strava times for Karori Park laps, and fastest 2 mile time.
