Winter solstice, shortest daylight hours in the southern hemisphere happened during the week.
In Hobart, a group of mountain running " nutters" headed out at 6 pm, well and truly dark, sundown is around 4:45 pm, to climb Mt Wellington with headlamps on the front & a red light on the backpack.
It's such a beautiful sight to see this long line ( about 45 of us) on a single track up the mountain. Photos don't do justice & mostly don't turn out very good with small cameras or on phones.
But, what it does do, is give a good mid week boost to both distance & vertical with 18 kms & nearly 1300 metres of up. It was a perfect winter's night for us. Not that cold for once even on the summit, may be just below zero and no wind.
Some before us during the day must have made this little snowman. It was so nice to see some snow as we have not had much settle so far this winter. Not cold enough & very little rain so far.
The rest of the week has been fairly standard except my local Parkrun was cancelled due to track damage. It's on gravel so not unexpected at times. I don't run on hard surfaces so the other couple of close by Parkruns were not going to get my attendance. I opted for an exploration run over other damaged close by trails thus adding to the vert total of the week.
Overall, a good week, using all 7 days with one day a walk/recovery/easy day.
