Championship against Fighting Harada in Tokyo in 1968.
I often used the course as a time trial to test my fitness, because it was both invigorating and fast. I quite often ran it in around 67 minutes and can remember one time running it with friends in that time and then running a second lap in exactly the same time on my own. Those were the days!
Looking at the satellite photos, I see that Jacksons Track is now paved and there are now some houses right on the Aqueduct, so the course is probably extinct.
After yesterday's long road run, I just walked 5km today. I felt good, though my right Achilles tendon was quite stiff and sore.
