Distance:16.09 km
Avg Pace:6:21 min/km
Elevation Gain:556 m

A mostly unsatisfying run up around Mt Banks. Had real trouble deciding where to run this morning and made a stupid, spur of the moment decision to check out Mt Banks. I had thought that there was a trail that led at least 10km out from Bells line of Road, turns out it only went about 6.5k before becoming crazy rocky and overgrown. Great views at the end over the Grose Valley though.

The fire trail is pretty runnable. Headed back to the start where there is another single rocky trail which climbs up to the summit of Mt Banks. Was only able to hike it up and down. Nothing much to see at the top, some more views into the valley from a small way up. Nearly faceplanted a few times and kicked my toes on rocks. I'm not a fan of this type of trail 'running'. A wasted session so will try and do a 20+ km run tomorrow.

Weekly Total:

Running: 76.24km (6:47:30)
