I should have been at the ACT off road half marathon today, however family factors with two kids for respite care would have been too much for one person to handle. One has a few behavoural problems, so needs to be watched all the time. The other has been coming to our place for the weekend once a month for the last 6 years and is now 11 years old so is almost one of the family. The other has just started so, the ground rules are slowly being learnt.
We took new one home after lunch, one night is enough at the moment,he other stays two nights. So after dropping him off in Conder, I decided to run home via Tuggie Hill and the flooded Murrumbidgee River at Point Hut. The low level concrete bridge was closed on Friday morning with the water level about half a metre over the road. A very long detour for Tharwa and beyond residents to get into town with their main bridge closed since last year due to it falling apart and new one at least a year away.
I am glad I don't live in Gippsland in Victoria because I don't think there is any dry land down there to run on.
So today was a gentle easy run at a reasonable pace with being exiting. The gradual build up in distance continues with this being a little bit further than last week.
Today also ended the 1st six months of the year with June rest month being the only one under 300km for a month.
