Time to get back into the serious side of having fun. A couple of short easy jogs last week while in recovery mode have served their purpose. But watching the mountain runners climb Mt Rob Roy yesterday and hearing of Phibes's results in France has kicked the system back in to gear.
It only takes a little bit to get you going again after a short break. Today was on the soft sandy tracks between the base of Lake Tuggie dam wall, along the edge of the mighty Murrumbidgee River to near Point Hut, then back to civilization. Really can't run on hard surfaces any more, there goes the marathon running career.
Liz, Dave Hosking won the Mt Rob Roy run from Dave O and Trev , Angela won the women's race, 31 starters on a perfect day for running up and down mountains. Full results out shortly on http://www.mountainrunning.coolrunning.com.au/
Just watched the final 10 minutes of the 48 hour from France. Unbelievable, note the concentration on Martin's face in those final few laps. Totally focused. A true champion.
