I did a 5k in just over 26 minutes yesterday. I'm getting closer to my target of 24 minutes... :D
I’m skipping today and will do a 9k again tomorrow.
Friday rest and a 10k on Saturday… :think:

So it was an 8km run with 2 loops of 4km each.

Ascent per lap was 100m, so 200m in total.

Well done Thug. :clap: :clap:

I don't know how familiar you are with the Pretoria surroundings? The 9k rout I run home most afternoons is in the northern direction down Voortekker road which include a 2km ascent over the Magaliesberg after the 4th km mark and then descent for 1km into the Northern suburbs. The ascent is a killer but the view on top is spectacular…. :D
