I wasn't expecting such a short run to become such a difficult one!
8km @ MT Pace (6:44/k)
Start from the Highlands School, Bong Bong & Old South Roads. I did 5km out and 3k back and walked 1km; this to avoid having to do the last kilometre uphill as part of 8km!

8km in 56 minutes
Avg. Pace 7:00m/k
1km splits : Avg. 6:51 (1.2km); 7:14; 6:40; 6:35; 6:51; 7:18; 7:26
Weather good, bit windy, sunny. More cars than usual on O.S Road ....Anzac Day; felt breathing bad from start to finish. Many breaks to get my breath....don't know why but there it is. Felt like, and no doubt looked like, an old duck waddling along before trying for take-off! In this case, no take-off, just waddle, waddle, waddle!
