Another run...

We have a run booked in for Sunday so before we do that one I want to tell you about one we did 2 weeks ago.

Running Buddy and I travelled down to Queenscliff to run on the Bellarine Rail Trail. We took the steam train to the start line at Drysdale and ran 17kms back to Queenscliff. The trail was really nice, a little undulating but with a big hill to finish. It nearly did finish me off but has really reignited our running mojo as we aim for another half marathon.

 About 350 runners took part in the day which was run by a small group of volunteers and supported by The Running Company of Geelong.

the train ride was the fun part
looking stronger than we feel
We are getting good at getting ourselves 'sorted' in the mornings with our breakfast/fluids/toilet situation and have that part down pat. We had to supply our own drinks which were left for us at the 12 km mark. Things had been going really well up to that point but the stopping for a drink mucked up our rhythm a bit. We have to practice that part of a long run a bit more. By the end I felt quite spent and gulped down water and a coffee afterwards. Which in turn meant I had to have a pit stop on the way home to chuck up on the grass at Lara.

 I have some lessons to learn yet.
