We headed out from Park Road this morning, over the Gray Street bridge, up over Highgate Hill, out through Yeronga, Fairfield, Chelmer, over the river at Indooroopilly, through UQ and back to Park Road - 2:40:03 and 29k. I was pretty stuffed by the time we got back - well before we got back actually. The horror stretch for us at this time of year is the path along the river form the Toowong Ferry to Park Road. There is no shade and the sun beats down on the path and reflects off the river.
It was great to see RITH, Chunderchick and a couple of guys from Pat's group, Davis and Mark (Slash we call him) out there. They started from the Regatta and were heading the other way.
Almost forgot to add, for the record, I was running in new shoes today.
