The fall last week seemed to have knocked the stuffing out of me. I ran Ok on Sunday, then finished up with blocked sinuses & a cold for this week. No running and it showed today as I tried to get some running done in the sunshine. A nice day, the wind was cool.
We need a couple of courses in reserve for our monthly handicaps in case there is a problem with one without much notice. The biggest problem is finding something that's relatively flat.
Today, I revisited Urambi Hills, left off the calendar a few years ago. Nothing has changed in the area, we could shorten the distance for a warm month run, start earlier, etc. It has possibilities in an emergency. Otherwise I ask the northsiders to find something suitable.
I did spot a fox near the Tuggie creek, then a very large echidna near the entrance to Pine Is. I stopped to watch him ( or her) for a while as he slowly crossed the road and ventured off into the bush. Very nice creature indeed.


  • You'll be feeling better for the weekend - just as the rain comes back!

    I'd describe Urambi as "relatively undulating" - it's pretty hard to find a flat course (with toilets). You could do something based at Fadden Pines - run up to the tennis centre, then down the bike path to a turn, then back.
