So, first run in Hsinchu (Taiwan). Made it through the 2km of polluted traffic to find a national park called 18 peaks mountain. I went around and around and up and down and finished with 14km. It's a bit wet here.
The park has wifi throughout and signs showing the temperature which unsurprisingly decreased the higher I got (134m tops).
Sounds rotten Simon and Iron; hope you both 100% soon.
Thanks SG; you're right maxing a HM needs more miles but to find time I'd have to give up some cycling which is enjoyable and used to/from work. More injury risk too.
BTW looked at my last 9 HM's over 5 years on PO10 and if I did a parkrun the day before. The 4 HM's when I did were 1st, 2nd, 5th and 8th fastest! No bias as mostly Wokey or Fleet. A small sample and agree a hard 5k the day before seems stupid.
I'm racing a large, long distance duathlon in Copenhagen in May, my A-race so to speak.
The day before I have a choice of 3 parkruns within 10km. WWPD?
5km as 1 loop would be nice, but half of that in to wind... I've done some races there where the run leg is 1.25km long so 2x out and back. Apart from the dead turns it's a nice way to get a good 5km time and break it down.
