The only time I got out for a run during my work conference in Darwin.
Still over 30 degrees, I am unfit and I had no idea where I was going. Started with vague plans of an out and back 10km. Decided that an out and back run wasn't going to do justice to my tourist status, so just made it up as I went along. From the front of the hotel, through Bicentennial park, down some steps that appear to be the locals version of hill training, judging by how busy they were, took a dead end turn into the port, then eventually found my way through into part of Darwin's waterfront and along the sea wall. Continued along in roughly the same direction along the coast until I hit a boat ramp and incorrectly decided I had gone as far as the marina. Took a turn inland and was trying t ofigure out how to get to anywhere interesting when I saw a sign for the Botanical Gardens, so ended up winding my way through them for a bit, then eventually got across to the other side of town and through what would have been the Minil Beach markets if it had been Thursday or Sunday evening. Ran along the beach for a bit, past Sky City Darwin, through some more random (fairly expensive looking) suburban streets before getting myself stuck in another daed end as I was well and truly running out of puff, and well past the time I was meant to be back at the hotel to head out for a group dinner.
Hopefully the complete lack of oomph had something to do with the weather a well as complete lack of fitness. My left achilles was pretty bad too, but when I wenttot check how the bandaid held up on my toe, I realised that I forgot to put one on, so I guess it has recovered fairly well from my last effort at running.
