The week has consisted of running each day, the good news. However, with the house still full of unpacked boxes, there is plenty of work yet to do to make living less hectic.
No excuses, but we have continued to have almost winter weather with at least some rain every day. Late afternoon storms, sometimes only a few minutes are happening.
Two days ago, I went out running late afternoon wearing two shirts and a waterproof jacket as rain looked likely. It did rain half way through my run, but without gloves, my fingers froze. Air temp was 7 degrees, apparent temp 2 degrees. Wind chill, it was freezing.
I'm really running by opportunity at the moment. Far too many variables & interruptions, including the weather, to make contact with Hobart locals.
After Point to Pinnacle in 4 week's time, I'll take a one week break. I will probably run the GoneNuts101 km in late February next year. I can get serious about getting distance & time on feet. The long course of 101 kms includes about 2,500 metres of up hill but by the look of the course profile, there is nothing too serious in steepness.
Meantime, please can we have a day of sunshine in Tasmania. The daytime temp doesn't have to be too high, but so far in the past 2 and a half months, we haven't had a cloud free day.
