It was back to Mt Taylor this morning because I had an appointment in Deakin at 9am so it made sense to run in a location that wasn't too far away. It was warm and muggy and I was dripping with sweat before I had even got halfway up Mt Taylor and yes, I admit, I was walking! I was puffing more than the little steam engine and it was a case of "I think I can...I think I can...I think...oh bugger who cares, I'm walking...!" There were not many people out and about this morning; I only saw a handful of people.

I also had 2 'almost falls' - with the first one I was almost horizontal, arms outstretched, ready for the 'splat' when I somehow managed to pull myself back upright. Whew! The second one almost happened as I was negotiating my way through the narrow gap between the gate and fence, at speed, and almost lost my balance. No other incidents to report.

possible rain - possible storms - possible falls - all figments. (of the imagination, as figments always are)

That's 2 'almost Tuggeranong Dons'.

In spite of the walks, you ran the same pace as Steve on his long run :)

just remember that when and if you fall, it's all about how you get up and do the gymnast's dismount. the old "you can't laugh at me, because i know i did this!"

Yeah don't worry about the km pacing on the garmin when you are running hills, just get the average! Which for a hill run is pretty darn good! Great running.
