Windy Weather Wakes a Water Rat!

I met up with Ewen at Questacon carpark and we ran the West Basin end of the lake, a similar run to the one we did a few weeks back but without the extra loop round the Museum. It was a pleasant climate but the wind was a bit strong in parts. We had a great opportunity to catch up on all the news - so many different topics of conversation - great fun. We did spot a very large water rat running across our path - eeek - glad I wasn't swimming in the lake! It was warm enough to run in a singlet top but we cooled down pretty quickly after we stopped. On went all the layers before we enjoyed really good coffee and cake at the little place by the lake.
Total distance: 17.5km
Time taken: 1:50
Average pace per km: 6:19


  1. I'e read your last post about running around the lake, swimming and coffee break at the little place by the lake. You make me envious of your environs.

  2. Yes Giorgio, we've got fantastic environs down here!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY Strewth! Hope you managed to blow out ALL the candles ;)

  3. Hi Ewen,

    I've never been in Australia, but I think most Australian people as adventurous and loving the outdoor life.
