I am exhausted today. Hayden is training hard for the Ironman race in March, and – I thought I was helping – I ran along with him for two hours on Saturday. Oh, I didn’t run as far as he did. I ran about half as far as he did, or even less. We were on adjoining treadmills at the gym.
On Sunday I woke up aching exactly everywhere. Hayden was fine. He was happy to have a fairly quiet day at home, but I was sore and bored, and I wanted to drive somewhere.
He suggested Crystal Creek.
Yes, extremely beautiful. But a bit of a pity it was overcrowded. And typically, there was quite a macho vibe with all the blokes jumping off the high rocks and their chicks screaming when their cigarettes got splashed.
So we continued up the road to Jarouma Falls, which in the late afternoon were nearly deserted.
