It all fell apart today on a really nice sunny day. Conditions could not have been better, but I felt lousy all day. No excuses I can think of, may be just tired and need a good night's sleep and a rest day.
The distance is a educated guess, the time is right due to the stop watch part of the Garmin working. I ran out to the Kookaburra gate and back. On the track well away from water was a small turtle, long neck that was pulled in as I got closer.
I hope it found somewhere safe to go, it was gone as I returned.
Softshoe has very kindly lent me his old Garmin 201 to use until I buy a new GPS. I have looked around and it seems the only GPS worth buying is the Garmin 310. I don't need the heart rate monitor, I have had one for 10 years and don't use it.
Most of the GPS models have too short a battery life, at least the 310 will last close to 20 hours. Always these techno gadgets fail just prior to a major event, Spiny Cray in a week's time. It hasn't stopped raining in FNQ for 2 weeks, so looks like a wet track with plenty of creek crossings and wet feet, again. So much for the dry season.
Calwell oval looked a picture last week when I ran half a lap in lane 5. Lane 6 just needs a friend. Image of Calwell oval courtesy of Ewen from a couple of years ago. I like this picture.
