|Setting out from Congewai. |
Firstly, there were the ominous weather forecasts for cold wet and windy conditions for the 33km run from Congewai to Cedar Brush. None of the thirty-five booked runners cancelled because of the adverse forecast and there was keen anticipation of battling the elements on the bus as we drove the ninety minutes to the Congewai trackhead. However, the bad weather was clearing by the time we started running and we ended up enjoyed the best running conditions imaginable - cool, breezy on the higher ridges, low humidity, and sun-dappled tranquil rainforest glens. It was a pleasure to be alive as we made our way southwards.

|Post-run relaxation. |
For today, I walked an easy 5km around Copa, and didn't feel too tired or stiff, apart from the tendon still being a little painful. I'm already looking forward to our next Club trail run in three weeks time.
