Glad you both enjoyed it. KC must have done brilliantly with blisters because they start to hurt and they don't stop! Great distance! 2 daleks - one at Brickworks Park Lookout and one at Blackbutt Lookout.
Yes she was in pain so I encouraged her to accept bailing out as I didn’t want her to have lots of painful memories and therefore decide never to do one again. I have told her the terrain in the bush ones like at the Wattagans gets ridiculously bad and I typically get cut to pieces so I would never expect her to be subjected to that.
There are maybe 3 "urban" rogaines each year in NSW so if she likes the concept she can be narrow in her choices.
Hi Mess Engineer. I got terrible blisters the last time l went rogaining too. Not pleasant. I'm not sure whether it was the too thin socks, the waterproof boots that didn't breathe, or the existing callouses (from running) under which the blisters developed. Ouch!
Hi PrueD. I wasn't sure if I lost all "my readers" when I attempted moving overseas to Netherlands and then my log basically died due to extreme stress, months of wintery snow, and my plummeting lack of exercise. I am back in Oz now ... with no 6 1/2 acres to maintain anymore .... and based in Sydney with repeated trips back to Newcastle on alternate weekends.
Another runner was telling me different techniques to avoid long distance blisters yesterday (some product called 'glide'). My general feelings with Rogaines are 3 hours is more ideal as I start to get bored when it runs into 6 hours (there is a case for too much of a good thing).
