Surgery on leg. Results within a week. No quick movements for at least a week and dressings on for 3. That sorta puts a dent in plans! Lots of volunteering coming up at parkrun!

Jamie Lee still filling in for the newly married Cory. Getting to really like her classes. No running today as it was raining lots - but that didn't lighten the work load.
walking (field checking) 45:00 
Did a fairly quick lap of permanent course I'm planning on using this Saturday - managed to miss all the rain which was really heavy beforehand and just drizzly afterwards.

Much better today. This was a fantastic area - sadly very runnable due to the drought. Courses very well received by competitors. Discovered that the 2018 course rules were in effect - love them! Excellent course for participants, though upon picking up control descriptions I was less than enthused - all were watercourses! At least I didn't have to bother with ANY other feature. Was going well and was really happy with the danger control #4 (as decreed by course setter ID) and so chuffed was I that I thought I'd do something stupid and do a 180 out of it. Was going along trotting and stumbled and fell - picked myself up and found that I'd been running along the track in the wrong direction. Thank you small lump of rock! Retraced and kept going. That was the only stupidity for the day - the other mistake was the same as yesterday - my bearing seems VERY flat when it is a 1:7 500 map and so it was at #1 yesterday and #3 today. Fortunately I picked that one up much more quickly than yesterday. Again didn't recognise my error. 1st by almost 2 mins.
Anyway that ends the bush season for this household for 2018. Really seeing the effects of not going to SLs on both fitness in terrain and decision making. But today made me think that the knowledge is still there - just need to dig it out.
This is a direct cut and paste from blair's entry from yesterday - him in WA me on East Coast. I decided... why reinvent the wheel?
an area relatively close to the city which had less than rave reviews from the locals. It's steep; a lot of it is open or semi-open, but there's a lot of small rocks and even on the downhill bits there wasn't much opportunity to stretch out. Definitely felt like I was managing rather than racing - although I did manage to run most of the (big climb) to *what was not my #1*

Ho Hum started badly being very high and very accurately counted w/cs but far too high and so missed the actual control. I had no other idea than to retrace steps. Saw PO and he was fuzzy too - found his control which wasn't mine. But then worked out where I was. A bit tentative to #2 then got really into it and did quite a few fast and good legs but then after a spike got confused by the map saying a track when it was clearly a tarred path - should have realised from landform and know that council have been active. A couple of minutes down - but should have been maybe 15 mins better. Can't complain as I've got no bush fitness and no bush nous currently.Splits are unsettling - fastest on 7/10 legs and pretty much stone motherless last on the others. Just shows how rusty I am.
Tomorrow is another day then the end of the bush season for me!
Splits say I lost 17 mins - i'd estimated 15 which I think is about right.
