I watched the runners competing in the Canberra half marathon this morning while jogging, stopping & talking my way to 9.6 kms around the edge of Lake BG. A really nice morning to run the half with some good performances.
Afterwards, I stopped at the top of Mt Stromlo to check out the venue for next Sunday's monthly handicap. We have been lucky with the dry weather, the trail is rocky in places but mostly good. So a suitable place but the first 1 km and last 1 km will need to be treated with care. No falls this time.
I ran out and back to finish with 7.65 kms making day's total as above. Weekly total on plan, increase that by a few extra kms each week, weather permitting. Certainly there will be no early morning starts.
