After work today I went for an easy run on Brodie Park. I’ve recently bought a pair of Sketcher Go Run 2 and was keen to try them out on grass. They are very light and though, don’t give as much cushion as my Hokas, still feel very comfortable.
One of the reasons I like to do recce runs on a new course is to work out my mini-splits. So on Sunday when I ran almost 30 miles of the 44 mile loop I worked out where I wanted to have my mini-splits.
The first 7.5 miles is repeated at the end so I’ll be able to add in another mini-split on the way out and use that as a check on the way back! Sorted.
Both Katrina and I are really looking forward to the race now. It will be the first race we have run together as a team. I ran with Katrina for her first ultra, the Highland Fling, in 2012 but this is as an official team. I couldn’t think of anything more original than Team Kynaston for our name!!
I’m going to use these splits to give us an idea of our aim for the race.
