Stuff the farmers and the water restrictions etc - stop with the wind and the rain!!
No, that didn't help ...
Anyway, out at 6am this morning for my medium long run on a different course as I was fairly sure that the path alongside the Burswood golf course and near Trinity College would be flooded. I ran out to the Narrows on the South Perth side, over the new Narrows bridge, out to Matilda Bay and then back on the city side, over the Causeway and home. 21.37km in 1 hour 42 mins total.
Total time included a stop for a brief chat with Sugar, Kim and Kate at Mends Street. They had just finished their run so they must have made a very early start. Too early to even find a cafe open for a post run coffee at that time surely??
Also stopped for a brief pit stop at Matilda Bay so given the conditions and the fact that I ran very easily, I'm pretty happy to have got this run done in the time that I did. Didn't get too wet but running into the wind gets a bit tedious and I always feel like I'm not getting enough "bang for my buck" when there is a big tailwind (ie not getting the full benefit of being out there for a run). Hence my rant about the weather.
Getting a bit excited about Sunday. Forecast is for showers developing but that should be well after we have run and with no rain forecast in the days before, hopefully the course should be nice and dry.
