The female form

I did this over two days, mainly on foot, but there are some bicycle connections.

As usual, the run isn't displaying correctly on the Strava website, so here's a screenshot from my phone:

The right shoulder looks a little strange because when I planned the run I didn't realise that part is near the Governor General's house, and I couldn't get to the right spot because of security. But I'm pretty happy with it otherwise.

Horrific little chode

I've been a bit lazy with the runs lately. This is my first this year and it was pretty tough after such a long break. But a good result I think. I hope to do plenty more. Stay tuned. Click on the pic below to see it in better detail.

A run through the suburbs

See what I did there?

I like some of the more organic shapes of the trees in the actual path below - especially that one on the left. The large tree also looks kinda bonsai.

Stormtrooper helmet

I did another picture run this evening. This time, it's a Stormtrooper helmet. It was an approximately 13km run, based on this guy's artwork.

It was simple in comparison with the face I ran last week. The face had roughly 250 points to connect, and this helmet has just over 100.  There were longer distances between the points this time so I could get some sort of pace up, but it was still stop-and-start.  The result is good, but clearly not as good as the face.

Here's the actual path I ran:

Face with glasses

I drew this face over a week on three separate days. I did it by pausing Strava between points - this draws a straight line, and means you aren't restricted to the shape of the streets. Each of the three runs was approximately 7kms. It was very slow in sections, mostly because the detail around the eyes and ears meant I had to greatly reduce my pace to get it right. It was also very stop-start. I'd run to the next point, stop to pause and restart Strava, and then often head back in the direction I came from.

Here's the same run, but showing the actual path I took:

I've uploaded screenshots from my iPhone because as you can see below, the face does not display properly on the Strava website.

If you click on image below it you can run your mouse over the elevation profile and watch a cursor trace the path I took. There was a lot of back-tracking! But I'm pretty happy with the result.
