walk 1:40:00 
Walking with Yvette and our prams & bubs, to the exercise station near the Lake Alex toilets and back. Eleanor was being a fuss pot again so we broke the walk on the way there at the Cool Spot for coffee and then continued on...which stopped the fussing for long enough to get from the Cool Spot to Lake Alex and spend twenty minutes at the exercise station. Then she fussed the whole way home again....and went to sleep as soon as we got in the door of the apartment. I guess she could be getting sick, as I have a sore throat (probably Lachlan's man flu), or maybe it was just not what she wanted to be doing this morning.
Strength&Conditioning 10:00 
Step ups and step overs at the exercise station, including some little breaks. And a few tricep dips.
stretching 45:00 
Mothers & bubs stretch class at Nightcliff. Eleanor having a fussy day, so held her for a fair bit of the class and modified various exercises where possible.
Then sat around after for the newborn nurture group in the same room. A very different atmosphere to the Thursday group in Parap....but then I think Nightcliff/Rapid Creek might be the home of Darwin's alternative lifestyle population.
walk 25:00 
Bits and pieces of walking with Eleanor. To Botanic Gardens to meet Anna for coffee (a chia pot is not a pot of chai spelled wrong, it actually is chia), then up to Salvos and Vinnies after. Very wet, got rescued by Lach. Can't really feel Saturday's walk so that's good.
Course planning workshop. Feeling a bit tired!
walk (metrogaine) 5:52:00  25.0 km (14:05 / km)
Mostly walking 6 hr around town with Plaxy and Cathy, HH at Stuart Park primary. Map reached to bottom of northern suburbs but greatest checkpoint density was in the city/Cullen Bay with a cluster also in Bayview, a scattering through Fannie Bay/Ludmilla and a cluster at East Point. Went for Bayview first as not so familiar with area there and thought it best to get done in daytime, then headed to city, and finished from Cullen Bay/Mindil area. Rather hot, humid and sunny to start off with but it cooled down around 5.30pm due to big storms in the harbour that just missed us in town:). Felt a bit slow to keep up in beginning but it kind of swapped towards the end as others' feet got more sore than mine. Also was feeling guilty in case we couldn't complete the full checkpoint loop to get back, as I had said we should try to complete that particular section, so was walking fast to make sure! It turned out fine, although we did also have some nice flat & downhill bits in the last hour that we could shuffle. Plaxy is a good leader I think, she was always checking up that Cathy/I were ok (we were).
Glad it wasn't any longer, but it was good to prove to myself that I could last 6 hours on my feet. Really felt the heat when we began, but I think it might have been an exceptionally dew pointy afternoon - had had a massive storm earlier in the morning before dawn that smashed our side of town and flooded lots of places, including our basement, taking out the lifts. Wasn't looking forward to climbing stairs up to 7th floor after rogaine but luckily one was working again by then.
