Running water means river as distinct from lake. Returning to the south side today, I had time during the day to get out on to the undulating, sandy and rough tracks near the river. Heading north, I crossed over the Tuggie Creek and out towards Red Rocks gorge.
Turned at the kookaburra gate, returned to Pine Is for a cold 5 minutes in the water and back to work. I have really missed the standing in the river recently, maybe a little addicted to the winter pain from the coldness of the water. It sure made the legs feel better.
A quick calculation, I have about 12 Saturday's to get many long runs completed by end of August, ready for GH160 on 13th Sept. This weekend, I will start with an easy 25 km from home, after that probably go to Molonglo Reach for the next few increasing by 5 km each week. Those runs will gradually include both Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura. The July long runs will mostly start from home as I will be doing them on a loop basis, returning home to restock and out again.
August will be nearly all day affairs, just walking and running to get a pattern and plan developed for the big day. Any one interested in joining in, please let me know. All runs will be done very slowly including walking most of the hills, and there will be hills.
