Tonight was my sister and my regular trail running session. We intended to run 5km but ended up doing 8.24km. It was heaps of fun despite the heat (it must still have been about 30′C despite the sun having set). We cruised along together at a comfortable 7-8 min/km pace other than the kilometre we walked, which we covered in 9 minutes. We are still walking up the hills in our training sessions because I don’t want to overdo things with my shin splints and SIJ (which flared up a bit today but is still manageable).
We ran some fire trails and then set off down the You’re Kidding single track. We cruised through the pretty grass tree forest, where our lights shone off the grass tree fronds. Then through the scary forest, where the trees seem to be further from the track when on foot compared with on our mountain bikes. We hopped over fallen logs and twisted our way through the corners.
Total: 8.24km night trail run.
