Bike Ride - General 1:45:00 [2] 27.0 km (3:53 / km)

Bike ride. Parked in parklands surrounding Adelaide and then walked to Zoo to collect free hire bikes. Then rode up the Torrens river until ran out cycle path then headed back down again past Adelaide and the Brewery.

Normally I would drive to West Beach Surf Club and get a bike there to ride up the Torrens river but they were closed on Mondays in winter. Invited along a guy from meetup as he hadnt ridden a bike in 10 years as he was complaining about getting sore knees from running and he had no idea about the free bike scheme in South Australia.

Walk Meetup SA - Health Rebuild 2:05:34 [2] 7.37 km (17:02 / km)

Meetup with 18 other people at Stuart Gorge recreation park. I thought I had been here before but it was in summer. Pleasant scenery with river flowing through it which we crossed several times. I would return here again (in winter) with company.

158 m elevation change with the final hill to get back out of the gorge and up to the car being a killer!
11 AM

Walk - Bush 19:02 [1] 1.24 km (15:21 / km)

Solo walk around Wittunga Botanic Gardens Soley because
(a) never been there before
(b) it was within 1 km of earlier walk
(c) I must have passed it three times in the last week of exploration
3 PM

Walk Meetup SA - Health Rebuild 2:00:00 [1] 9.69 km (12:23 / km)

Meetup group of about 10 people Glenelg Beach to West Beach.
I had been along here before walking and on a bike but these guys took a different route.

Run 5 km SA - Official Strathalbyn 29:44 [3] 5.0 km (5:57 / km)

59th parkrun at 29th location.
Came 7th of 20 competitors and had a long discussion with the run director including watching the process of uploading results and photos to Facebook in the cafe afterwards.
Next week is launch of Aldinga parkrun so I may go down there for my last SA parkrun for a while as it doesn't look that much further than Christies Beach which I still need to complete.

Glorious sunny day ..... a bit of a walk around Strathalbyn (where my mother was born but I cannot remember visiting) before heading back via small towns Macclesfield, Echunga, Algate and Stirling to avoid the freeway.

First Wooter to attend this event and run director even put my photo up on his event log!
3 PM

Walk - Bush 1:50:00 [3] 5.0 km (22:00 / km)

Time and distance approximate.
Hogans Track and Pretty Corner lookout as new explorations at Morialta. Neither were as spectacular as the main trails. Very very steep up to Norton Summit Road. From there up to the top of the first falls and then down to the carpark again.

Very little work on further filling of the skip today.

Run 5 km SA - Health Rebuild 25:00 [3] 4.0 km (6:15 / km)

Bailed after the 3 km mark (18:05) as too exhausted and didn't want to be wrecked for a new parkrun in the morning. Walked 1 km back.

Ordered another skip this morning and spent the morning smashing apart old furniture and filling skip.
Only 1/2 full by end of day. Getting harder as now need my mother to agree on every individual item. Also got skip guy to take away an old king size mattress which was surprisingly awkward to drag around.

Current plan is to start new job in Sydney 21st August.
This means I can knock off two new parkruns but that I won't catch up all the runs in South Australia.
