2015 TDS Training – Run no. 38 – Hot jog and Siu Ma Shan BBQ

Sunday is usually flattish jog day. But as Saturday was less hilly than planned I decided to re-route my Sunday jog over Siu Ma Shan and perhaps also Jardine’s Lookout. Ha ha …

I woke up too late. I only got going at around 9am. By that time it was oven out there. I was still fine jogging up the road towards the trail. But once on the trail I felt spent. I jogged mostly without any walking and made it all the way to the pipe near Mt. Parker Road. Quick planned shower under the pipe there and back towards the Siu Ma Shan steps.

The climb was just brutal. I had no energy left. Clearly that Saturday day out in the heat and on the sun left some marks on me…

I struggled my way up and over the top. Then quickly without lingering too long on the open ridge and made my way down towards the quarry. I decided that Jardine’s is out question today and turned onto the catchwater instead. On Mt. Butler road I took another quick cool down shower under a small pipe. After that it was painful and hot walk jog run walk jog run 5km or so on Sir Cecil’s back home …

This was short 12km run, but by the time I finished I was done. Two days in a row in this weather was pretty hard to handle…
