street O @ Watson...

I'll be happy when daylight savings ends so it's not pitch black when I walk the boys...

I again parked at EPIC with street O @ Watson...the Flemington Rd EPIC bus stop has been moved into the pull in area while the light rail construction is underway...pity the bus drivers don't actually go past the stop as they are supposed to...three buses drove past before one pulled in when a traffic controller for the construction waved them in...the same thing happened last week so I fired off a message to Transport Canberra's FB page and got a response about the bus stop being closed and moving to the pull in area - I pointed out that that was where I was waiting and that the buses weren't pulling in...they responded to say they had informed their Operations area and it shouldn't happen again...pity I'm not going to be using that stop for a while to check!

Jodie picked me up after work as usual...this week we beat the lightning show and rain which happened on the drive home...it was quite warm and I worked up a fair sweat by the time we finished...

the stats:
start temp/humidity: 28.1/40% (apparent temp 28.0)
start time: 6:14pm
total distance: 9.31
total time: 57:50 (official 58:20)
avg pace: 6:13
total calories: 764
avg HR: 144
TE: 3.7
recovery HR: to be added (written on map)
BPK: 895

my order: 6 - 19 - 11 - 10 - 14 - 13 - 8 - 5 - 4 - 2 - 7 - 1 - 3 - 17 - 9 - 20 - 12 - 15 - 16 - 18 - F...this time I stuck to our planned route although I nearly ran past 5 as I was looking at the map think it was at the end of the path, lucky Jodie noticed I missed it...there were a couple of off-road legs - 1 to 3 to 17 and then 12 to 15...our favourite point, the Starlight sign, was included...I think we've done it twice on street O and once on the Urban Polaris...took the wrong approach to 16 and then nearly headed to 6 instead of 18...still it was a good run to finish the last of the daylight savings events...next week the head lamps will be out!

Long run replacement...

had dinner at mum and dad's last night...

this morning I opted to do a long BRun rather than the long run with speedygeese as originally planned...

headed out around Lake Tuggeranong and then up & around Fadden Pines...I went over the Golden Bridge on the way back...

the stats:
start temp/humidity: 19.7/72% (apparent temp same)
finish temp/humidity: 24.3/50% (apparent temp same)
start time: 10:43am
total distance: 26.18
total time: 82:20 (including 0:12 stopped time)
avg speed: 19.1kph
total calories: 619
avg HR: 122

my longest BRun yet and a good workout as I aimed to stay in 8th gear as long as possible...certainly felt it in the quads after I finished...
