2015 TDS Training – Run no. 56 – Thursday morning Parker #14

It was around 30C as is usual on a Hong Kong summer day. But somehow today even with the sun shining it did not feel that hot.

My legs felt a bit week after the cold or whatever I have been struggling with since the Saturday Tai Mo Shan adventure but otherwise I felt good to go.

As usual I jogged my way up to Tai Fung Au. After a short bathroom break there I continued up towards Mt. Parker. I had no intentions to push too hard today so it was mostly power hike till the top. I stopped for a while at the top enjoying the views that were quite interesting thanks to all the scattered clouds.

I then jogged down to the junction and pushed up to the second radar. After that easy run down to Tai Fung Au.

Without any pause I went on climbing Mt. Butler. Again no extra pushing, took me about 7 minutes to get to the top. I slowly jogged down the steps back to Tai Fung Au. From there just the run down to Quarry Bay and back home.

This was a nice low effort run with decent elevation. Good post sick workout before the tougher weekend runs.
