A nothing special run from home to work & back via the river.
A nice red belly black snake on the gravel track between Woodcock Dr and Bonython. Well, the back half was a nice round size, obviously well fed at the moment, the part I saw was about half a metre in length. Care needed near the long grass.
A few rest days while travelling over the next 6 days, just when I don't won't them, but that's life.
I have just read the article in the current Ultramag on Jo Blake ( his real name ) on his adventure at the Spartathlon and how many kms he did leading up to the race, 2053 kms in 79 days with 1259 kms in the last 40 days. However, what happens on race day is sometimes out of your control, as happened to him.
Also found the article on Sandy Barwick interesting.
A good story from Liz in the magazine on her experiences at the Tan run in August, well done.
