Saturday was a tour of the western side of Tuggeranong over 4 hills with trig points on them. As well as the hills to climb, there were  so many gates or step through fences to negotiate.
At times going up McQuoids hill or Mt Arawang, the GPS could not give me a gradient reading as I was moving so slowly, too steep.
However, the effort was well worth while. Apart from the training benefit, the views were terrific.
A good long outing, the start of 9 months of many, too many kms to be covered.
Today, a bush walk with the group from work over the eastern side of Woden starting from Mawson shops. We covered Farrer ridge, Wanniassa hills, Isaacs ridge & the back of O'Malley visiting places many in the group had never seen before.
Probably the main purpose of the walk was to get them out and about, and realize there are some wonderful parts of Canberra yet to be explored.
Another great day, perfect weather with some very good work colleagues.


  • Good weekend - 55 ks in two days is almost my weekly mileage.

    Your km rate today is what Jim White is aiming for when he walks the Spring Series Tuesday on crutches ;-)
