    Kicking the week off with an easy 6km run on the beach this morning. It was instagram worthy - brilliant red-orange-yellow sunrise in one direction and a rainbow at the other end of the beach, but unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me.

    (I never take a camera either..;))
    7.5km this morning-lovely day for a run. Nice and dry and good temperatures now too.
    Good steady pace round both lakes today…:)

    I use my phone to play my music while running so I always have my camera too.

    I rarely listen to music while running- I prefer the sound of the surf and birds. I do take my phone in the dead of Winter though in case I need it- where I run in the Winter is pretty sparse on people.
    I did 5 miles on Monday evening- it was a beautifully sunny evening but still 20 plus degrees below normal in the upper 40's. My knee feels better, and my feet are gradually getting into mid-Summer shape. Every year the macadam I run on gets a year older and a year sharper so I would hope that my technique has to continue to improve each year to be able to hold my own on that surface. I guess there will come a point where I need to find a new location.

    Just back from my old ancestral home of Ballarat. I planned on running a lap of the lake there, which is a gravel track of 6km that all of the local runners tend to use. Last time I ran there I ran my best 5k time in years AND picked up a metatarsal stress fracture, so I wanted to erase some of the bad memories.

    The weather overnight was typical Ballarat, howling wind and pretty cold, and the morning was pretty uninviting, but I strolled over from our AirBnB and tried to put in a brisk effort without being tempted to go too fast and break something. The path is a bit rough in places and I was dodging around trying to find occasional relief on the leaf-strewn grass beside the path. Not many runners out due to the poor conditions, but a few people said hi and a couple gave me funny looks and comments.

    I ran a reasonable time by my standards, then did a few more km to kill some more time so I didn't stumble back into the holiday house and wake everybody up early.

    8.25km this morning. A wet run today- but the temperatures not too bad now, so it was quite nice running through the puddles.
    Came across a group of proud looking geese leading a large group of newly hatched goslings to the water. And then past the swans nest again -she’s still sitting there incubating her eggs. Seems like ages since I first noticed her. -wonder how long they take to hatch…?:)

    Tedlet, 35-41 days for the swans to hatch.
    I did 4.1miles yesterday evening on my usual route at Presque Isle. It was sunny and about 60 degrees with a refreshing breeze. Everything looked vibrant green and new and fresh, and I think I felt pretty much the same throughout the run. Another couple of weeks before the official start of the summer season at Presque Isle, so I am enjoying the serenity before the crush of tourists begins.

    Cheers Duckfeet -reckon they can’t be far off saying hello to the world now. Think I’ll try and take that particular path on my next few runs just to see if/when they hatch..

    Staurday did 6.07 km in the morning. Got my music playing, makes a difference on my cadence, at least it seemed easier running than last time! :)

    Boulder and I did a 3 runs this week.
    We did a 4 mile run Monday.
    We did a 3 mile run Thursday.
    Today we did a great 8 mile run at 6:00 am, it was already getting light out. We spotted lots of rabbits and lots of birds. There were many spots with spring flowers.
    All 3 very nice runs!!

    7 days & 7 runs. Weekly total was 31.47 miles. Four 3 milers, one 4 miler, one 5 miler, and one 10 miler. Run Streak is at 147 days. After my 10 mile run on Sunday, I also got a leisurely 17 mile bike ride in with my wife and a friend.
