Back home and return to work on Monday. No more holidays until mid March next year for a week.
Running without shoes on the sand for a week gives a real different feel than with normal running shoes. May it's the weight of the shoes, or just having shoes on, but I run seem to run more easily & may be slightly faster in bare feet, even on the sand.
The same apples to running on the grass at the oval, faster for perceived less effort.
Back to home town running this afternoon after a big morning unpacking the caravan & tidying up the house especially outside. Looks like the rain while we were away has created growth that just gets away. I think my next favourite word will be weed killer and Roundup. If it's not important, it may just get knocked down.
We stopped at Marulan on our way home on Friday afternoon to spot an Echidna crossing the main street. It had been a while since I had last seen one, and never expected to see one in the main street. A good healthy example.
Then out today on the gravel fire trail behind Bonython, I spot another, 2 in 2 days. Buried it's head in the grass while I stopped for a look, then off we both went. Another good solid echidna in suburbia.
Slow today, very difficult to get moving freely. Possibly a combination of traveling for a couple of days without running, and a bit too much in the yard this morning. Last part of the run was better than the first, no problems really.
