It's been many years since I had the chance to run from Woden during a lunch break. Mostly it had been the Oakey Hill - Curtin loop. At other times I would run straight to the top of Mt Taylor and back, that was about 9 kms.
Today, I checked out the distance around the base track of Mt Taylor, a circuit we will use on Monday and may be a few times later on. The distance is 5.57 km plus the extra km and a bit to where the car will be parked, around 7 kms as planned. Altitude gain & loss on the loop around 100 metres. Track is generally Ok, a couple of wash outs but nothing to worry about.
Clockwise I think will be the easier way to go, the up hill is shorter but steeper, the down hill flatter & more runable. Should be a good test after a couple of circuits.
Nice afternoon out there today, I ran from just after 2 pm, warm temp but with low humidity, the heat didn't seem a problem. Unlike Sydney in February near the coast, humidity will be high.
