Morning all! Aussie here reporting in from Helsinki today where I am here for work again. Have running gear, will travel is my motto so this morning at 6:30am (that's 4:30am for you UK folks) I set off on a GLORIOUS 6K run around the bay opposite my hotel in Central Helsinki... the sun was up (a bit warm already actually - nice and sweaty when I got back!)....
A lovely recovery run at 7:02min/km (42 minutes for the 6K) and keeping it nice and relaxed... lovely... Total mileage on this old boy this week? 18km and counting... interval work on Friday... yuck!
It is a BEAUTIFUL place to run... wide paths, mix of asphalt and trail and 2.1km around the bay so I did two anti-clockwise laps and one clockwise one... nice little hill in the middle too... perfect start to my day... now I'm showered and fed and the work day can begin!
Happy running folks! Have a great day and THANKS for all your kind comments on my "what a difference a year makes" post... it's been a life changing year alright!
