Wednesday I ran up and down the beach, bare feet and finished with a swim in the ocean afterwards. Very nice and a feel good outing.
Yesterday we drove to Ballina to shop and check out the changes in this sea side town. Biggest change will be the road by pass, the next biggest change is the Big Prawn has closed down. Such an icon in the town.
Today, first run, I ran over the river to the breakwater, then up to the lookout, almost got lost trying to find the Lighthouse, but did find an echidna digging in the sandy headland. Back to the van, ditched the shoes and most of the clothing, then continued up and down the beach for a 14 km outing.
Had lunch, watched a couple of vans arrive and set up, always exciting seeing how they park and unload. While Mrs TF had a nana nap, I easy jogged back to the beach, another swim and back to make almost 20 kms for the day. Beaut day here today so make the most of the opportunity to run.
This is exercise for fun and enjoyment.
