running (Belair night) 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Made hard work of trainline-steps loop with Zara/Callum & Nick. Hopefully it's just that knees & hips are still tight post-rogaine. The next time we do this run will be in daylight!

swimming 37:00 [3] 1.0 km (37:00 / km)

New goggles hated me. Also it's a long time since the end of May. But the water was pleasant.

running hills 34:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

5 x Montefiore Hill (a bit less worse than 2 weeks ago although legs still lactic from last night's massage) + warmup/down. I am starting further up the hill than in previous years and have the horrible feeling that I'm going into Aust Champs week less fit than ever before; am sure that's not completely true, but I have neither terrain strength nor sprint speed. Surely I can work on both of these in the next 3 days...

running 47:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

After AOTKM I drove to Seacliff and went for a run up to Marino lighthouse (winter is back and the waves were crashing on the rocks) and meandered back down via some small bushland reserves. Feeling just about ready to start training for nationals and a little bit horrified to realise that they are only 5 days away - oops.

riding (Brownhill Creek) 1:10:00 [3] 19.5 km (3:35 / km)

Was rather tired today - not having slept well, partly because it was so cold in the big tent (about -1 overnight rather than the forecast +5) and also because of the freight trains which seemed to come roaring through the tent at intervals throughout the night - so after being at the start for a couple of hours, I was grateful for the other Wallaringans who helped me collect controls, and in fact the event was all packed up by 2pm, by which time it was getting rather warm. And since it was still a pleasant spring afternoon after we came home, I eventually went for a bike ride even though what I really felt like was a nap.

Today's courses used the same controls as yesterday and offered either last night's courses approximately in reverse (before anybody asks, no, there weren't any hidden messages) or a score event, which although people like John managed to complete in under an hour, allowed walkers and juniors to spend up to 2 hours getting all 30 controls - one of the limitations of planning courses in this area being the train line, but I'd managed to identify 3 culverts of varying sizes for people to stroll or stoop through. In general, although there were some controls which people found difficult, particularly at night, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and I received good feedback. Everyone loved our pet echidna, too, which Geoff snaffled when we were in Cheap As Chips yesterday buying the glowsticks and which a surprising number of people thought was real when they saw him in the grass near the start :)

Note

Spent a glorious afternoon out at Narrinyeri putting out controls for night champs - Geoff kindly came with me to help by driving around and putting out water, and we even put glowsticks at the culverts (compulsory crossing points) under the railway line, then he set up the Taj Ma-Tent while I taped some legs on the kiddies' course - and then all I needed to do was offer glowstick bracelets to competitors as they arrived, and dine on cheese toasties from the Junior Arrows' catering while waiting for finishers, and finally spend about an hour searching for a straggler who, although we initially located him, didn't get the hint about course closure...

Anyway, while doing this I noticed some glowing 'eyes' on a tree, and then on another tree, and another, so I showed them to Tyson and we managed to track down the geocache to which they led and which was located basically next to his campsite!
