Did you get those running shoes ready?
Because the time has come around again for our monthly catch-up on all things running-related, with the ultimate running date!
Things are heating up here, so you better be ready for some early morning runs.
While getting up at Sparrow’s fart (aka 5:30 am) is not fun, it means getting my run done in cooler conditions.
I’ve been hitting the trails in readiness for Gold Rush (which by the time this is published I will have run) and incorporating loads of speed sessions.
I even got to run a Parkrun which I haven’t done in FOREVER.
Point Cook & Wyndham Vale are the two parkruns closest to my parent’s house. Point Cook was celebrating their 200th Parkrun, so I decided to incorporate parkrun into my long run, by running there, participating in parkrun (as a tempo run), and then running back to my parent’s house.
Let me tell you, it was humid and with very little shade it made for a hot long run.

I’ll be honest here, training for Gold Rush has been hard. My motivation levels have been a lot lower than say with Surf Coast Century, and it all comes down to the days getting warmer.
The only plus is I’ve gotten to witness some beautiful sunrises, and I get to ditch the headlamp.
After GoldRush, I plan on just free running for about 6 weeks, before the next training cycle begins.
Until then, Happy Running!
