I'm not running on Monday over Mt Rob Roy due to a clash of events on at the same time. I decided to run over the full circuit this morning to see what I was missing.
I'm only missing the racing part, which doesn't matter much these days. Even if I was available, I would probably be assisting in some capacity.
Starting from home, I get an extra 3 kms each way plus the measured course distance of around 23 kms. This first part is the easiest & only real flat part, after that it gets a bit undulating, my words, not Ewen's who would think it's all hilly.
A very warm & muggy morning as most others have commented on this morning. The easterly wind bringing in the moisture, with thunderstorms due this afternoon/night. Nothing yet, we may still miss out.
A good run today, walked up a couple of the hills that are rough & steep, slowed the km rate, but picked it up nicely on the flatter & down hill parts.
Happy with the day, now can slowly ease back before next Saturday's long run into the Brindabellas.
