Monday and today's outings were similar, mid afternoon easy running near the river, still has plenty of flood water raging through the rocks causing great rapids.
Last Sunday, the canoeists were out having fun. Today, even through it was cloudy, only a couple of almost naked young girls were at the beach hoping for a few rays of sunshine.
This weather is what I am expecting in Sydney in late February at CP100 km, so I am making the most of the chance to acclimatize.
Given that a few years ago I hated the humidity, a few trips to north Qld have made me realise that it's not that bad, and I can handle it better than I previously did.
I did feel like running today, but left a little late due to the work Christmas lunch. Never give up on a free feed, the guys in the canteen did great job on the lunch, and of course the Christmas pudding for dessert.
Both Monday and today, I had 10-12 minutes standing in the flood waters, carefull to be very close to the bank. I could have finished down at Gundagai or Wagga Wagga in a couple of days if I had slipped.
It's bucketing down with rain again as I write this, please God, we have had enough just for the moment. Let us all dry out and feel the warmth of the sun for a couple of weeks.
