After yesterday evenings 5km run I headed out this morning to test myself for an hour and see how I felt. A far cry from the training run I had planned on BVRT course today but I was happy to bag 10km along the river to Kangaroo Point and back with no loss of energy … Continue reading Challenge Day Eight – Week One Done
