Beautiful morning to run, none of the heat of the past few days. Easy as well as tomorrow is a long, tough run.
Kept to the usual tracks down to the river, stopped at the south end car park beach area at Pine Is for a quick swim, wash off some sweat and dust, then a gentle jog back home.
I should have titled today's story " animals in the wrong places". Last Tuesday I was high on Tuggeranong Hill when the most beautiful, solid and happy looking echidna crossed the path in front. Today, the bunnies were out in force, but then there were people with dogs in area where they are not allowed.
The river track area between Point Hut and all of Pine Is nature park is dog free. However, some of the signs that were burnt out in the bush fires have not been replaced. May be they don't know, may be they don't care.
There are two dog off lead areas near Point Hut, they should be used. I know softshoeshuffle has this love/hate relationship with dogs when he is out running. Just keep them under control and in the right places.
Plenty of carbos tonight, big run tomorrow, looking forward to the challenge.
