Back to running via Wadestown and to running 5 times/week. Again trying for very slow, easy run, aiming for a pace of 7 minutes/km on average, which I’ve arbitrarily decided is a good proxy for a target road ultra pace. Running faster than this though – it’s difficult to drop that slow, even on hills, over this sort of distance.
Ego trying to get in the way when I was overtaken by a woman on Wilton Rd, who wasn’t herself going fast. Had to remind myself to hold my pace, no reason to speed up. Several very fast runners coming down Wadestown Hill; who are they? Where are they going?
