Year:  381.1 kms in 3 weeks at ave 127.0 km

This time there is nothing to write about to do with the running. Easy Monday recovery type run.
But the recovery at the river is well worth a line or two.
Normally, good water temperature for recovery has some hint of cold, in fact the colder the better if you can handle winter water temps.
It's now much too warm to be of muscle recovery benefit, but the relaxation benefit is wonderful.
Just a few mums & little kids about all enjoying the lovely day, the warm sand & the beautiful water of the Murrumbidgee River. A nice flow of water means no stagnant parts, a short swim & the rapids upstream are very nice indeed.
Being able to enjoy this so close to work is great, a short 1 km jog afterwards just long enough to dry off.
