Tomorrow I am going to do a 15 klm training run - I want to do this twice before I run in the Sydney C2S on 10 Aug. I will be using a walk run ratio of 2mins run/1 min walk and have carefully mapped out a course that resembles the actual race course. The most significant features of this run is (for me) is 1. the first hill (which commences almost immediately at the start and goes up 20 metres (65 feet) over 1 klm --It's not that steep or long but I hate hills at the very start of a run) and 2. the "killer" hill which starts at the 6klm point and goes up 80 metres (260 feet) over 2 klms.
I am not taking any equipment that tells me pace or distance done -- I just want to complete the circuit, even if I finish up walking it - and then I will see how long it has taken me. I have already done 13klm of this on an even hillier course so I think I should be able to do this slightly less hilly one.
