It's a tough undulating course on the western side of the Arboretum, a great location that will only get better as the trees grow.
Rain during the week settled the track surface nicely, just a couple of soft spots where machinery had loosened the track.
Felt really good after yesterday's outing in the Namadgi National Park. A good solid run from near the back at the start, caught plenty after the turnaround except Ewen & Janene in particular.
Stopped at Pine Is for 22 minutes in the cool water which has helped plenty.
Bit low on the weekly kms but a rest day on Tuesday and a short run before a massage on Friday were both needed. I should benefit from both next week.
