The image of Mt Tennent & Bushfold Flats reminds me that this is another area that will be used during December, Jan & Feb getting ready for Six Foot Track. Although not using Mt Tennent very much last summer, I remember writing that I stood on top of the mountain 9 times the year before. It is a tough day out every time you go there, but it is really a top area to run. The track from the back of the mountain, highlighted on the image is the track used for the ACT and Aust mountain running championships, 6.5 km from bottom to top, and not much rest on the way.
Today, a run from work to home during a break in the day. This time up Athllon Dr to Farrer ridge behind the ACT Environment HQ, cross over the ridge, under Yamba Dr to Wanniassa Hills nature park, then down through Gowrie, along Ashley Dr to home. Lunch, write this story then back to work for a few hours.
Great day at noon, perfect winter's day, bit of warmth in the sun, very light breeze.
Strewth, Mt Tennent is where you may go a few times if you decide on SFT next year. Meanwhile, how is the ankle, and where are the photos? No damage done I hope so close to GC.
I think having the image on the right side of this page is better.
