Plod Of The Phoenix

Yesterday Total: 4km
Week Total: 4km
Month Total: 4km
Year Total: 261k

Well it has been 2 months since I dusted off my old Nimbus size 9's. I won't go into detail but suffice it to say I have had other priorities. Nothing bad - just an intense time that required 100% focus to make some stuff happen.

Anyway - I'm out of excuses, so there was nothing for it but to take a toddle around the roads that surround Concord Golf Course. It is a bit of an undulating route and with the first 700m being uphill I headed off at a nice gentle pace - it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. Thankfully.

I chose to alternately walk and shuffle up the hill on the western side - and then broke into a mild trot for the last 1k to end up with 4k in a smidge over 30 minutes - so no land-speed records being set in Concord - but it's a start :)
