Change of scenery today as it was a lunch time run from Woden bus interchange. After two rest days, it was time to get moving again, and with not much time in a lunch break ( 1hr 30 mins), just enough time to go to the top of Mt Taylor and back. You can eat lunch any time.
Surprisingly, today's run was very good with the climb to the summit of 4.75km taking 29 mins 24 secs and the run back down the same way taking 21 mins 24 secs, about 1:30 mins faster than just before Christmas. Very happy with the effort.
It would appear that I am back in business so onwards and upwards, just over 4 weeks to go before SFT.
Mt Taylor is about 860 metres above sea level with Woden Town Centre about 590 metres ASL. The first almost 2 km are just a steady climb with not much gain in height so it is really a solid 3 km of uphill. The view is well worth the trip. Usually see plenty of people on the tracks but not today, very quiet.
