James and I are just returning from a week running round the pretty amazing Tasmania! I saw this as a week to get away to explore with James and see a great part of Australia and refresh the mind. Also the difficult and different terrain offered a different training stimulus- to learn to climb to do stairs to get wet and mainly learn to hike..definately my weakness!
Here is some of our stats:
Day 1- Mt Wellington
Day 2- Hartz Peak and Mt Field Camp (Steph Run)
Day 3- Mt Field uphill and waterfall loop and Coles bay (Steph Run)
Day 4- Mt Amos and loop of hazard beach and wineglass bay
Day 5 – Craggy peaks to broken Bluff on Ben Lamond
Day 6- Cradle mountain
Day 7- Cradle Mountain
Day 8- Montezuma Falls
Total: Tasmania Running
Time running- 15hrs 16
Can’t wait to come back!! Will post daily run updates highlighting James photography ☺️
And out of interest accommodation costs were 160$ for the whole time (rooftop camper for the win!) $220 for fuel and 2400ks of driving including the trip from Merimbula. We went on the spirit of Tasmania to get the car there.
