2015 TDS Training – Run no. 28 – Thursday morning Parker #7

Another Thursday morning, another Mt. Parker run. Last night after the track session I felt a bit my left ITB but the issue seem to have gone away. What did not go away completely was the tiredness of my legs.

I packed the usual short summer run supplies – 1 bottle of Nuun and 1 bottle of plain water.

I ran up the first bit to Tai Fung Au at similar steady pace like a week ago although this time I had to make one quick cool down break by a pipe at the side of the road about 600m from Tai Fung Au. I was feeling a bit too hot.

After Tai Fung Au I planned a fartlek type of run to the radar. I started that way. But later during one of the walking bits my brain started to think about something and forgot to switch back to running for a bit too long.

Eventually I ran again and the last 300 meters were pretty decent. I took a short break at the top – the usual photo, refill of my Nuun bottle from my plain water bottle etc. Then I did a quick “ramp” to the other radar and continued back down to Tai Fung Au.

From Tai Fung Au I went up to Mt.Butler, a bit slower than last week, then back down and again a bit further up the Mt. Parker Road towards Mt. Parker. This week the momentum did not carry me as far up as last week…

After I turned around all I did was a quick run back to Quarry Bay interrupted only for few seconds devoted to observing a beautiful lizard (that would not pose for photo).

Overall a bit tired legs and a bit more difficult heat management compared to week ago but otherwise good morning run.
