One saving grace is the weather in Rocky is noticeably less humid already and it was this period last year that I made steady gains. By June I was doing 10km runs in about 57/58.
Just following on from this, I knocked out my first 10km in about six months last Tuesday, took it easy at the start to make sure I got there and got it in about 1:04:45

Fast forward a week and I’ve knocked 3min off to be about 1:01:45, pretty pleased to be rapidly getting back to where I was now the Bull Rocky humidity has **** off for another summer

Rocky River Run is about six weeks away now, I’ve never done the 10km course in this event, but honestly anywhere under an hour I’ll consider a raging success
Good on you. You off the beers?

Don’t worry, I told him your real name.

I expect he’s waiting in your bushes as I type this.

Haha, well im not going to be killed..

I think Im aiming around 15-16 hours, but who really knows with something this long. First time on most of the course, so target times are tricky.

Sub 16 would be a great time.

My 2015 attempt when my knee went about the 50km mark (and walked/limp-ran from there) ended up 19.5 hours. I'd like to think I was on track for sub 17, but who knows how that would be gone to be honest. That's why I've always felt like I'll do it again one day (have tried to lol).

Goodluck y'all

Freaking out yet Doc? At least so far none of our premiers are freaking out too much and shutting borders...

Gladys hinting this morning that there is 'good news' to come today, and we are unlikely to head into lockdown. Given there is no restriction of footy this weekend, Id say there is very little chance of the event being covid cancelled. My bigger concern is that if there are a couple more cases, other states with require quarantine on return. Gladys is very hesitant to change anything to regress the situation, as we saw over the Northern Beaches outbreak - we still got to go the the cricket for example, but we had to wear a mask.

True, but tightening of restrictions might not necessitate cancellation, but put the organisers in a situation where deferring it is the financially obvious decision.

I think that if I'm from WA I'd be trying to salvage what I can in flights, accommodation etc. Coming from Queensland I'm not too worried about travel restrictions unless it becomes rampant in the next week

Knowing myself how events run, 80% of the money is already spent. All the hire gear, contractors etc will be locked in. All the supplies, food, expo sites etc all paid for, so it would be devastating if they had to cancel now, and would be the last resort.

I guess it's back to obsessively checking the weather then.
