There are times in my life when I want to know what the future holds and being inquisitive by nature there are times that I wished that I didn’t know what beckons.
Today was one of the latter days, no not the “latter day saints” although we did get a visit from a couple of Jehovah Witnesses who now have a new weekly to rival “Runners World”. They now call it “Awake”, I’m sure it used to be the “WatchTower” – I always associated that with “all along the…”, the classic by Hendrix. Running whilst “awake” is not a topic that “Runners World” has covered yet; maybe the JW’s are onto something.
So today I had a spare couple of hours so I decided check out the start area to the De Castella 10k run on 28th August and try and map it out with my Garmin.
Far out! This is one run I wish I’d never known about- It starts off great – 1.2k downhill (50m descent) and rolls up and down for 4 k before you turn around and do exactly the opposite – the last 1.2k uphill (50m ascent).
The loop at the 3k marker is inaccessible to cars so I had to walk it; the views from here are stunning and the bushland is a bit of a welcome shock being that I was only 5 minutes from the city.
No exercise at all this week and I’m kicking back tonight with a Jacobs Creek Reserve Shiraz – a great wine for only $14.
