Fairly standard beaut morning at Calwell oval on the newly cut grass. New, as in I had to wait a couple of times for the mower to go past. The blades cut across 4 lanes of the running track at a time.
The oval had been watered early morning or overnight, slightly wet & lovely soft on the top side.
The lanes had also been oiled so the track is in tip top shape.
Running bare feet, usual 5 laps at a time, short break for a drink, then off again. Change of direction, finished off with a cool down before driving home for lunch.
Then drove to Pine Is for a swim. Before that, another 2.45 kms to add to the daily total. Plenty of mums & small kids about on a very nice afternoon.
Another good summer's day, it's not hard to take this lovely weather.
