The week has seen me run 93 km. Saturday was an 4hr hill run to the saddle above Woolshed Creek and back. This goes past disused mine workings and the day turned from grey in the lower creek to sublime as I ran up above the clouds.

Finally at the saddle.
Today ( Sunday ) was a 3 h 30 min run on tired legs but fortunately encountered another runner on the Ashburton River Track so that helped me lift my pace. The temperature hit 39 degree Celsius so my 2 litres of fluids were all consumed. Only worry is an Achilles niggle today which oddly goes when I run faster so will have to see what happens there over next few days.
