    I don't suppose it's an issue this time of year, but through summer do you have to plan your runs due to temperature? It's permanently chilly and damp here which for me is ideal, i'd love to see how i got on during a hot and humid NSW january.
    I generally plan mine ofr the arvo or the early morning. Middle of the day would be ridiculous.

    Now until about October I reckon would be ideal fro running. As well as getting into it from about March onwards

    Try to get my long runs done in summer by about 9am. Which means getting up at about 5:30am on a sunday when training for a marathon.

    That said, it's not so bad in canberra as there isn't much humidity. Winter not so much fun though.

    I don't know if it counts as "running", I've been training my arse off for the past few months, getting ready to walk The Overland Track in Tasmania later this year.

    About 8km each day, with 14-15km walks most weekends (both days) all while carrying a backpack with 10-15kgs in it.

    And I use the Strava iphone app to keep track of it. Works a treat (and its free)

    21:54 at parkrun this morning. Happy with it as I felt like crap. And it was 25 seconds faster than my previous best.

    I didn't do that run as such but have run it. Going from redhead to Dudley is tough. It's a constant uphill gradient

    Thanks for that. The website for the event has a graph showing elevation along the course. Looks tough. First 6 Kay's pretty much all uphill and a climb of about 70+ m. From then on downhill and flat/slight uphill gradients.

    Beat my PB again on the weekend. 22:58. It was a real struggle though but I'm very happy with the time

    Great work, which marathon are you training for ?

    Longest distance I've done is about 20km. But walking it probably takes twice as long...

    I'm up to 120km this year so far
