I had to work all day today with a lunch break at Woden Interchange. Fortunately, lunch hour was longer than an hour so I had time to get out for an easy run after yesterday's effort at the vet's handicap.
From the centre of Woden I headed towards the city following the storm water drain around the top side of north Curtin oval. Nice and easy and flat along here until I passed the start of the North Curtin vet's handicap course and the up hill grind with half a dozen horses looking over the fence wondering what I was doing.
I had enough time to go over to the sub station and on to the track we use for the Oakey Hill vet's handicap that bought me out at Hindmarsh Dr. From there at least it was down hill to the Southern Cross club and back to the interchange. I should have gone into the club for a couple of schooners, but you shouldn't drink and run at the same time, some might get spilt. That would be a waste.
Fairly easy, very enjoyable especially as the sun came out late in the run and for the afternoon with finally a little bit of warmth being felt. Spring might be just around the corner. Looking forward to a big week.
