I ran from work at midday on a great winter's day. Doesn't get much better at this time of year. From work it was over to the base track of Urambi Hills near Learmonth Dr. On towards the big houses of Gleneagles, past the Murrumbidgee golf club and finally to Kambah Pool Road.
Down to the river, too cold for nudists at the beach, then left toward Tuggie Creek and Pine Is. The recent rain has nicely softened the tracks, really good to run.
It has been a while since I ran this area, a circuit I did with CJ about this time last year. I don't use many of the river tracks in summer because the grass gets too long, just perfect for a hiding brown snake.
But in winter, when all the reptiles are hibernating, the grass has fallen over and few other people are about, it is good training ground. The undulating nature of Urambi, the fast down towards Kambah Pool and the technical river track certainly provide entertainment.
Another good solid run, a bit faster in places, and taking it easy at times.
Rest day tomorrow due to a compulsory annual medical for my bus licence and renewal of my driver's licence to be paid. Fail the medical!! Retire early, could be a chance, but hopefully not.
