Joined by Bryony & Softshoe this morning for a double over Mt Tennent starting at the Namadgi Visitors Centre.
Up the Alpine Walking Track to the top, down the fire trail to Apollo Road. Back up to the top, and down the walking track to the start.
Just one other on the trail near the start but heaps once we returned to the top the second time. Looked like a group of around 10-12 walking with a couple of runners out front enjoying the day. Then on the way down met by more in small groups. Much care needs to be taken on this down hill section. Can be painful & dangerous if you fall.
A perfect morning for the outing. Felt good on the up hill for once. Just couldn't keep pace with Bryony on the down, but she has younger legs then me.
A good start to the spring running season.
