Skead Road; 8:53 pace. 20C/69F with 100% humidity, but the real challenge comes later today and tomorrow when it goes to 30C/86F. By Sunday, it should cool down a bit.
I'm not running much tomorrow, however; instead, going to run a marathon just down the highway from here in Massey, just over an hour's drive away. A friend is running his first one Sunday, and I managed to get the day off so I can pace it for him.
He says he's aiming for a 4 hour marathon, which is pretty much my training pace. Since I was due for a 26-30 mile training run this weekend anyway, I decided to run it with him.
It's the "Massey Friendly Marathon" and was my first race ever, in July 1998. A double loop, which I detest. I ran it in 30 seconds over the 4 hour mark, so this will be like doing it for old times sake, except I should find it a lot easier this time.
It's the same route (one loop) that I ran with my sister when she did her first Half Marathon four years ago.
