Whoops. Big fumble taking the dog on an exploratory run over the Gladesville Bridge. I’ve toyed with the idea of the giant loop around Iron Cove – Gladesville – Ryde – Rhodes – Leichardt. 2km into the run I decided to venture across Gladesville Bridge and down Victoria Road. Distances were way off and the 4:40s pace was too much for Molly.
Come Concord (post 22km), she was battling to hold 4:50s. I considered picking her up like a football but luckily she hung in there. Easily her longest run to date.
30km in 2:23 at 4:45 min/km.
Long run done. The legs felt so slow 0-10km, but quickly warmed up thereafter.
Left Molly a bucket of water and gave her a treat. She’s fine. Wife is still not happy.
