Didn't quite make the forecast 20 km back up from yesterday. But only because what we ran was far enough due to Mother's Day commitments at home.
Perfect autumn morning to run from Cotter Road, one of the last chances I will get to run in this area. More and more is being fenced off to make way for two new suburbs. It will certainly be the end of an era in Canberra running.
Very pleasant on good dirt trails over Clo's crossing to the central 6 track, then along side the Tuggie Parkway to the construction work on the lower side of the Arboretum. Up the infamous gun barrel to the main part of the tree planting, then we stopped at the eagle's nest to admire the views over the lake, the city and west to the Brindabellas. No snow over there yet, it won't be far away.
Off the top and we managed to get some speed going on the down towards the power lines and back to Clo's. We needed some extra distance so off to the old Jogalong course, up to Deek's Forest Park entrance, and down the trail next to the Cotter Road.
Very few out this morning, may be doing the Mother's Day classic, or just slept in for an easy day at home. Unfortunately, today doesn't get any attention from me, but I do hope all the mothers out there have a great day.
Speedygeoff, the virus didn't do any file damage, but it did stop a few functions, mostly the tool manager. It hid inside, and was difficult to find. I think the virus entered through a Facebook page, the only foreign website I have looked at recently. However, all is Ok now thanks to Mick.
