Out enjoying a jog on a nice sunny day down by the river, when a brown fox scurries across the path in front of me. Middle of the day is a bit rare but I have seen a few before this close to civilization. I didn't see the lazy brown dog jumping, so I also didn't see the alphabet before my eyes. So much for the nature lesson.
Little wind today made it a pleasure to be out and so it is reflected in the km rate. I am now a bit more optimistic about getting Sunday done before it gets too hot.
Time to venture into the water again after the run and scratch about in the sand. Nice day, good to be out. Rest day tomorrow, short easy run in Woden on Friday and nothing on Saturday.


  • All the animals must have been out today - maybe it's in the wind! Ewen and I saw so much wild life on our run this afternoon. You'll be in countdown mode now - not long to go! Enjoy the rest of your taper and do hope Sunday is a fantastic experience for you.

  • I saw a wombat down there once - near the Point Hut end of the track.

    You're very disciplined to be resting on such a perfect running day. No excuses for Sunday. At least the Indy cars are on tele for Saturday's rest day :)
