Three of us left just after 7 am heading towards Tuggeranong Hill to get some of the up hill work out of the way early. The climb over the ridge to Conder is a bit rough but the views are well worth the effort. The distant mountains were covered in low cloud, thus it made it a very humid run.
The sub station behind Theodore starts the usual Two fruits loop on the fire trails behind Chisholm, Gilmore, MacArthur, the Long Gully road underpass into Isaacs.
We only did a short part of Isaacs before heading to Farrer, up on to the Wanniassa Hills, down thru Gowrie back to the start. Distance at this stage exactly 30 kms.
I did another 9 kms to make the run worthwhile, mostly flat on the bike path around Isabella Plains.Nothing exciting about the run, a nice morning except for the humidity, pleasant otherwise.
