Earlier this week I wrote about the need for a few easy days after a rest day. Well, the weather improved and today was nice and sunny, a bit of a breeze but OK and I had plenty of time in the middle of the day to go for a run. Admittedly, the distance both yesterday and today was not short but the pace was on the slow side. Very comfortable I would say with a bit of speed on some flat parts and down hill but barely moving on some of the up hill parts.
On days like today, I prefer to stay near the river so I headed down that way and finished going past Red Rocks Gorge arrived at Kambah Pool. Up the road to the golf course, over to Gleneagles and across the paddocks ( the fastest part) to Tuggie Creek crossing over on the bridge before getting back to Pine Is. Stopped for the usual standing in the water for 10 minutes before a slow jog back to work. The reconstruction work after the floods has partly stuffed the beach at Pine Is, too many small rocks and a steep bank into the water. Another few kms in the bank although the speed needs to be reintroduced shortly.
