I am not really one for the numbers to be aligned but after observing a minutes silence at work, I walked out the front door of the depot and waited for the GPS to find the satellites. I noted the time, and waited a few seconds to start at exactly 11.11.11 am.
That was the good part of the day. The run was very average, felt sluggish all the way, need a rest day tomorrow before bike ride day on Thursday.
I went over to the back part of Urambi Hill, intending to do 2 circuits going up the back track where we once ran a monthly handicap, on to the fire trail behind the houses, then a long down hill through the open paddock back to Tuggie Creek. Workmen on the fire trail making the houses safer for the bush fire season had blocked off part of the track so I scrambled around them, only one lap was really possible.
From Tuggie Creek, it was out and back to the kookaburra gate, then back to Pine Is for 20 minutes in the water before jogging back to work.
Nice day, pity about the run, but there is always a message in it somewhere. I have heeded the warning. Early to bed tonight, I need some rest.
