This is not one of my usual training courses as I only get to cover the fire trails & hills behind Theodore when I work at night. This is usually every 3rd week, but next time is school holidays so it's back to a day time split shift, midday running from work place.
This course has a bit of everything in it, mainly undulating except a couple of steep climbs near the Monaro Hwy and a climb on to the Tuggeranong Hill ridge near the reservoirs.
Nice morning to be out, as it was for a one metre or a bit more of a brown snake on the fire trail behind Ewen's place. Covering most of the trail, it was a case of waiting for it to move along, I wasn't going to even ask nicely. The browns around here are the nasty ones, keep clear, they can become aggressive & are deadly.
Otherwise, good to be out enjoying the sunshine even if the wind again was blowing strongly.
