Left home just before 11:00 am, beaut day, near perfect weather conditions. Ran towards Gordon, then back under Drakeford Dr to the Conder side of Tuggeranong Hill. A couple of small inclines were walked, no need to try to run them although last Saturday I would have pushed hard. Very quiet on the fire trail as I ran to the sub station behind Theodore where the two Thompson's reside.
Behind the houses on my way to Calwell oval to check out Ewen's description of the oval. He was spot on, the grass has been cut, nice and soft and in much better condition than the Stromlo cross country course. So good, took off the shoes and socks and ran 3 laps in lane 5. Ran easy on the way home, the easy day yesterday, a sleep in, and now I feel the effects of SFT have gone.
Hopefully this late summer/autumn weather will continue, at least on Saturdays.
