Hidden 20 km

Found out today from the Gmap Pedometer that my run from home to uni is really 10.5 km rather than the 10 km that I thought. I've run this route approximately 40 times since we moved, so that equals 20 extra kilometers that I have run in the last year. I ran a 5km tempo run this morning from home to half way in (21:36) and then a slow run the rest of the way (25:38). Discovered that my "halfway" point is really 5.3 km so my tempo run was nearly at 4 min/km.

Hopefully tomorrow morning I can do some 400m repeats.

I'm working on a 4 things about me list that I hope to publish in the next few days.

What a scoop, running all those extra kms and not even knowing about it. Nice pace for the 5(.3)k tempo run!

Looking forward to that list :-)

Great tempo - enjoy the 400s (is that possible?)

Its always pleasant to find that you have done more than you originally thought. I was excited the other night cause the pedometer said 7 miles but then I found out it was only 5. Oh well, 5 is still good for me.
To answer your question, yes, Adelaide is why I like Haigh's. I have a friend that moved there from here and I went to visit her in October. Beautiful place even if it is a sleepy. I would have to live in one of the bigger cities though especially since the only time Adelaide gets bands is for Big Day Out.

How exciting to realise your running further than you thought! Wish that could happen to me

Looking forward to the list
