It was disappointing to miss yesterday'" Boot Camp" ride with the guys and girls from work, sound like they had a really good day out, a few hills and plenty of fun. If the " a graders" go out tomorrow I may join in, but I probably need to do some 1 km intervals on the dirt track behind Bonython instead.
Today was another perfect day in paradise in the nation's capital. Nice sunny day, little wind, warm enough and plenty of time to get a solid run done. Started out down to Pine Is, over to the bridge over Tuggie Creek, up the steep track past Black Sally's on the back of Urambi Hill and reached Gleneagles lightly buggered. I took a 600 ml bottle of water and half had gone in 8 kms. None the less, a chance to run is not let go, so I headed past the golfers at Murrumbidge enjoying their frustrating day playing hit and " try to find" golf ball, lost in the dam, over to Kambah Pool Road. Finally found some rhythm on the downhill to the river. Not enough time to check out the nudist beach although there were a few cars about and no doubt the sausage sizzle was doing a brisk trade.
Back along the track above the river, past Red Rocks Gorge and the kookaburra gate to Tuggie Creek, then on to Pine Is beach. This is an open public beach, mid week, few people about, not much happening. Stopped to have a swim and rest and finally made it back to work.
Not very quick, but that climb up the back of Urambi is very steep and getting rough. The warm day didn't help but you must get used to that as any day time event can throw up conditions like today and hotter. Certainly had no water left when I reached a tap at Pine Is. Still a very enjoyable run.
