As a companion to the "How was your run" thread, I would like to see the places you all get your daily fix. Trails, track or the T2 lane on your local freeway. Show me where you run (in the most non-stalkerish way possible - you don't have to say where it is if you don't want!).

I run on a boring little 1.1k bitumen circuit that goes around the construction camp for the QCLNG project on Curtis Island just near Gladstone. I spend 4 weeks out of every 5 living in this camp, and I usually do 3-4 runs a week on the same track, alternating directions every few Ks. To keep my sanity I try to go over to Gladstone and do a long run around town on Sundays - the weather and terrain makes it a very challenging place to run.

My record here is 27x laps of the 1.1K track or just shy of 30KM. Most people I work with think I am completely crazy. I see a lot of other people doing short sprints but i'm not aware of anyone else who has run more than 10Ks around the camp.

I also do most of these runs in the evening and I wear sunglasses so I don't get dust / dirt in my eyes. I'm pretty sure people think i'm nuts, which is fine by me :)

So please, feel free to join in and take a selfie or a quick snap of your regular haunt - or just a photo of something spectacular on your non-regular-haunt daily run!

This is a photo from my bedroom, and shows the valley where I run.
3km to the dead end, or about 10k the other way for a flat 20k return. Or run across the valley and over the mountains for a hilly run for as long as you like (40k+ if you were inclined).
No traffic lights, lots of wildlife. Not hard to get out of bed!!!!!

On my way out now for a 50 minute hill session. :)

PS: Damn! You are going to have to teach us how to us attachments!!!!
PPS: All sorted. Forgot to click the "attach this file" button :)

Thanks for that, some impressive photos/places there! I think the two threads can co-exist. The purpose of this one was more of a "photo diary of training" - we don't all have the luxury of running on beautiful trails and I think it is interesting to see where people train even if it seems mundane to them. Even if it is just the local school oval track or their daily run to/from work.

I use an old soft spectacles case like these http://images.monste...-600x578.jpgI find them in OP shops for about 50 cents and they last forever (especially if they have non-plastic clips) . I modify the folding top ( basically cut half of it away ) to allow me to easily put my phone in and put an earphone earpiece into the phone. I clip it onto the waistband of my shorts at the side -- works for me!! :)

I got something like this to hold my gels during gold coast marathon. Since then i've found it incredibly useful for carrying keys/phone/cash/etc. if I am going out for a long run.

The one nice thing about the circuit I run on is getting to watch the sun set behind Mt Larcom (i've climbed it a few times, much harder than it looks!). And thanks to doing lots of laps, it's almost like watching the sunset in timelapse!

So after hearing people sound like they were suffering on the so called 'hill' in the twilight run I figured I should show where I did my hill repeats this afternoon. Its a perfectly even 17% incline and goes for longer than I can manage (probably a good 500+m)

So heres a pic courtesy of google street view:

Looks really unimpressive and the photo clearly flattens the terrain considerably.. it just looks like a flat road right? So here's one looking at a house by the roadside just to give a different perspective:

Nice hill.  It looks fun.  Unless you are planning on doing mountain running, I think the best hills for hill repeats are much flatter.

I run on a boring little 1.1k bitumen circuit that goes around the construction camp for the QCLNG project on Curtis Island just near Gladstone. I spend 4 weeks out of every 5 living in this camp, and I usually do 3-4 runs a week on the same track, alternating directions every few Ks. To keep my sanity I try to go over to Gladstone and do a long run around town on Sundays - the weather and terrain makes it a very challenging place to run.



Missing out on a job there was the reason I got into this running malarky in the first place :Frustrated:

Pretty inconvenient when they do roadworks on the only track you can run on!!! Ever since Gold Coast Marathon there has been a section of the road that was completely removed leaving an uneven mess of clumpy dirt. I would call it trail running but this doesn't qualify as there's nothing nice to see.

Thank god they have finally started the works to fix it up. Hopefully i'll have a (relatively) smooth bitument road to run on again soon :)

Missing out on a job there was the reason I got into this running malarky in the first place :Frustrated:

Well look at all the fun you're missing.... what job were you trying to get here? Camp living is not really that great - I am hoping to get out and find work back in Brisbane early next year...

Hill repeats this morning.

Usually I do these at the town boat ramp (as we don't have any hills around) but the local boot camp crew had taken over that location today.

I went to a quieter riverbank location instead to do my incline work........I think I got the better deal.

Was going for an adult apprentice electrician job, with Bechtel, Im Ex Navy, 1 week off 4 weeks on would not have been as big a deal,

This is a great thread and I just love the photos of the varied places run. The water does seem to feature quite a lot. I must take a pic of my Bay run scenery and post.

Where I run 99% of the time. My street, and streets just like this. It's quite nice but it does get kind of boring, so lately i've been making a bit of an effort to go other places.

One of my favourite places to run is along the Torrens in Adelaide, especially with our fancy new bridge now :)

Did yet another hike of Mt Larcom today. Over 500m elevation gain over 3.3K. Feeling pretty good. Finally did it in under 1 hour (59:15) so feeling pretty chuffed. Calves were hurting at the time but feeling fine after a good recovery of sunday beers and burgers!

Recovery run around home - love the R&R week off. Decided to incorporate this nasty little beast in my run - it is deceptive because it does not look that steep but the incline just gets harder and harder as you go up. Taking a photo was a good excuse for a quick rest!

Ironically there is a cemetery at the top of this hill. Feel like I might end up in there if I keep doing hills on hot days.
