Beautiful day down in Namadgi National Park and on Mt Tennent for the Australian Mountain Running Championships. I didn't run in the event, just careful not to do any damage before next weekend. I did go for a run from the start area, part way up the main fire trail, turn off onto Bushfold Flats, then followed the Aust Alpine Walking track to the top of the mountain.
Waited for the junior boys and open women races to finish at the top before heading down, stopping a few times while the open men made their way to the top.
Ewen and Strewth- no need to worry about carpet on the floor of Ewen's garage. In the shift spill at work prior to the introduction of the next bus network, I have taken a split shift, 7:30 am start, 7:15 pm finish with almost 4 hours off in the middle of the day. Just perfect for me, plenty of best time of day running, still have time for shower, lunch and chat. They also pay us an allowance of 12.5% to do nothing, and it counts towards superannuation.
So, I will be away from home for 12 hours a day, still get home to watch BB, write Blog and go to bed. Probably after "salad" goes back to Tassie at end of July, I will run home during the split break for lunch, at least keep in the good books a couple of days a week. Cross training on the bike, easy.
From the depot, I can still run 20 km to Mt Taylor, over to Kambah Pool, Tuggeranong Hill or a flat run anywhere near the river. I could ride to Calwell oval for tempo runs or the gravel track behind Bonython is over 1 km long. There should be no excuses from early June, almost a professional athlete, just not as good.
