Yesterday I ventured out to the Cotter with Softshoe to run the 15 mile course to get a map of the course and to inspect the construction of the new dam. Progress in being made and we heard it may now be finished by April next year.
A slow run/jog around the course, not really flowing freely but we did the job. We decided to run over the bridge and along the Kambah Pool track just to run on a single file trail, something a little different. Although it was the first part of a bush walk with the group from work a couple of months ago. A good day, a little tiring, but Ok.
Today, I again had the company of Softshoe as we demarked the Tour de Ridges course after another good Aust Mountain Running Assoc event starting at Mawson Playing Fields.
This time, no time pressure as we stayed behind the last competitor in the 15 km event.
Another good morning, a slower pace and actually felt much better today than on Saturday morning.
