Running in Australia has been a completely different experience and a great place to spend two weeks training in over 30 degrees Celsius in the middle of winter, with some amazing views. I didn’t set out with any kind of structure, I just wanted to enjoy my running and get the maximum training benefits while still having the time to relax and enjoy our holiday. We started are trip to Australia by heading to Perth for Christmas and then on to Sydney for the New Year. I had done some research into places people recommended to run and found Kings Park, Jacobs Ladder 242 step Challenge, Bridges 10k route and Heirisson Island to see the wild Kangaroos were all a must while in Perth. In Sydney there wasn’t many different place to run apart from along the harbour but running down to the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bride every day was something special.
