Another warm one today but not hot. Ran as normal through the bush tracks with Bella to the creek and her swimming hole. In these days it is usually a swim after 16 & 21 minutes (on return), then all the way home in 37 or about 8km...not today, Scotty came past as Bella was furry dipping. The three of us set off along tracks we are not allowed to describe to places we shouldn't have gone...mostly up and very quick, the maximum I can sustain while speaking and listening. No time for a dip on the way back, too fast. 12km in 48 minutes, that includes warm up and down on hilly and uneven terrain...Scotty knows no other speed and Bella has been lying flat on the floor ever since...Of me: 127km in the last 7 days, nearly completed week three of 120km per week+. Racing a MILE tmoz, maybe a 3000m after...life in the legs??? It doesn't really matter.
