12.03pm: slow run along cycle path through Turner and Lyneham
Weather: 19.1*c, wind – NNW, 9kph; sunny day, blue skies
I definitely did not have legs of steel today, it was more like legs of lead. After last night’s 800m efforts at Dickson oval my legs were complaining about moving any faster than walking pace today. Well, initially anyway. However, I gradually settled into a reasonably comfortable pace and just enjoyed being out in the fresh air. It was a gorgeous sunny autumn day in the nation’s capital. It’s a shame that I spend most of it indoors.
Today’s run took in a loop that started on Barry Drive, headed along the cycle path through Turner, crossing Macarthur Avenue, going past the ponds that were constructed from an existing stormwater drain, then along Wattle St, then turning off just before Lyneham shops (stopping for a coffee a Tilley’s was a tempting thought!), heading along Brigalow St, then back along the cycle path past Brindabella Christian College and Lyneham High ovals, past the ponds again, across Macarthur Ave, past Turner Primary, through Haigh Park, and back to work.
And since the run I have been hungry…despite having lunch…and afternoon tea…
And yes, I succumbed and had a packet of chips.
