The Claret was flowing tonight

Unfortunately not a good red it was the blood after a 100 year old Moreton Bay fig tree root leapt out at me in the dark of Centennial Park and I went over on me knee and arm.

Anyway I was doing a Walk 3 mins Run 7 mins program tonight. And yes I did fall over while running not while walking.
I ran around the outside fence of the park but on the grass inside the fence with a bit up on Oxford St as well as it does get a bit too dark to see in places.

Ended up doing 7.51ks in the 50 minutes.

My numbers as a NSW Registered Athlete also arrived. So the Striders will at least get a point for me for the Winter Premiership when I do an event.

The older they are the grumpier they get! Hope you didn't lose too much of the fine wine.

LOL, I had a stack a while back running the outside fence on Oxford Street near the Centennial Hotel. I tripped over a tree root and yes the claret was flowing too.

I twisted an ankle on a tree root late last year at Centennial Park and missed a striders 10km. Dig 'em all up I say.

There are hills on every run I do but I really hammer them in both directions, up and down, at sweat training.

And it wasn't even a race!

Is the 10k CC on April 29 still happening SF? Good to see you running for the points.
