Top run with Imo this morning on Ridge with Dusty dog. It was misty with no sun - perfect for running. I braved the bare legs which felt good, have been too hot in tights lately, but should have worn gloves.

We saw the professional dog walkers again with maybe 25 dogs on 25 leads so we headed away from them before looping back to cross bike path onto southern part of ridge which is the nicest part. Ran along FTs near Caswell drive then ran curly single tracks all the way back. There was an especially nice one that gradually climbed next to caswell from near bike underpass. From there we turned back towards car running single tracks all the way back. We stopped a few times just to decide which track to take next, pretty steady run apart from that. I felt we were going fast when Imo was in front, yet she felt the same when I was in front. Must be psychological. DustyDog left us in her dust as usual.

We are getting excited about the Sri chinmoy Cotter Canter this sunday! Right foot niggle didn't bother me today, hammy insertion on left bit of an issue. More back exercises to do...

Walk with C on ridge. Yellow tailed black cockies in pines. Did some run intervals - C is getting better at running, looking quite comfortable today.

Running 7:00 [3]

The run parts. 2 mins for longest. Was wearing old blue trailrocs. Hammy insertions a bit tender so I'm still waiting for my back to be good again.

Walk with carmen from my place to ridge up over and around. Nice. Then home again. My legs felt completely recovered from yesterday. Nicer.

Mt Tennent for dawn on top with flan. 1:28:40 from trip recorder to top might be a PW but we did stop a bit without pausing watch...). I didn't run all the way up, am guessing the run - walk ratio. I made one major mistake - I went without BREAKFAST! Never do this again! I should know better. No, a banana is not enough. It has to be PORRIDGE preferably made with extra stuff like apple and linseed added.

It was a very black clear night with high crescent moon and bright stars at the start (5:30am). There was frost on the grass and a quiet crackling sound (does frost make a sound?). My headtorch was all charged up so great visibility running up. We stopped occasionally to admire the sky and the smear of dim light gradually appearing on the horizon; first blue, then a bit yellow then orange, yet a long time until the sun actually sparkles above horizon. This happened when I was just below the top. A few trees here and there had leaves that reflected an intense orange light while the rest remained dull green; an amazing sight that I stared at in frank wonder. Then the moment of dawn is so sudden, a very bright orange light suddenly turned on, shining in my eyes.

We ran together chatting then V went ahead a little before the T junction. Saw both the black and the stripy little wallabies on my own and heard 3 lyrebirds in full show-off concert mode right near the track (the last 2 next to fire trail near top). We had the mountain to ourselves until cypress pines on way down - a few groups on the way up.

Legs and feet survived, if anything they feel slightly better. Had a bath when I got home which was pretty nice. Mt Tennent for dawn is pretty much the most rewarding thing I can do in Canberra, so lucky!

Note

I have a friend who has a dream to hike up Bimberi Peak. He has been wanting to for years but never quite found people to go with on the right weekend. So... we had a plan for tomorrow - weather is good! I am excited!

He just cancelled. I don't really mind but now have to find another adventure to replace it. Namadgi is tempting... or just some red hill stair reps as usual?

With Carmen on ridge. Overcast in a very pretty autumnal way. Big rain is coming. Outside of both feet (head of 5th metatarsal) is slightly sore still.
