With many of the ultra runs at this time of the year being cancelled for various reasons, a change of plan for the next few months. Decided to see if the feet would handle something harder than gravel, dirt, rocks, hills, mountains, sand, grass etc.
Still included some undulating tracks leaving out the big ones after last Sat on Mt Tennent and this Sat on Mt Ainslie.
A friend of mine, Peter A, at present in FNQ would be saying, "I eat mountains for breakfast", out there before dawn to see the sunrise over the ocean.
So today was try out as you never know what may be planned for later this year. As it was, the road is still a very hard surface and I don't like it, but a little at a time building up could lead to something.
Beaut day out there, stopped for the usual swim in the river, nothing else but enjoyed the run.
