Visited my Mum and Dad today. Mum has just transferred into a secure dementia unit - sadly she didn't recognize me and can't talk at all coherently. Anyhow we went for a walk and a cuppa. Chatted to Nursing staff and then walked Dad home. Incredibly difficult for him, as he has all his marbles but struggles emotionally with the rapid decline in his partner of over 60 years. Just sad is all I can say about the situation and impact of AD.

Last strength session before Perth. Looking back the last 4 weeks has progressed according to plan and given other considerations I am as well prepared as I feel I could be; helpful to have a string of quality days to simulate back to back racing. Come what may and the vicissitudes of jet lag, going out there to enjoy the experience.
