Cycle commute. Cold on way home after at stop at Blackwood. I don't really enjoy night cycling in traffic on the way home, bit tiring, but the ride in was a good chance to experience some sunshine.

Would've done longer but T was bleating for tea, house was freezing without fire on, poultry needed to be shut I etc etc

orienteering 1:58:00 [3] 8.5 km (13:53 / km)

Course 4 Parra Wirra OY.
After helping with the Junior exercise I was behind most starters. Managed to mess up route to number 3 doing exactly what I'd said to myself I 'must not do' on this leg drifting on my bearing thinking the correct way didn't look spur-like enough and going a spur to the west. Corrected and headed back to control. Saw Rob T here and then cont to see him on and off to 9. Choose road route for control 4 and was honked by some friends driving past to the o which made me jump. Messed up last simple section into the control overshooting to the rock to the NNE. 9 took 2 tries to find the rock on the little spur with thick young tea tree making going slow. The leg to 13 - rock on the side of a big long spur - was a bit scary and proved difficult. Plan was ok run down spur until it narrowed estimating 500 m from yellow knoll. Turned off spur about 100 m too far as I found out when no control was there so headed back along side of spur. Thinking about abandoning here but luckily found control. Noticed I was walking a lot by now. No trouble with next few controls just slow slow slow through thick and steep scrub. Made a 90 degree error coming out of 17 ( put my glasses away too soon thinking rest was straight forward). Leith took 2 minutes on this leg I took more than 5! Relieved to finish. Felt like I'd been in a Parra Wirra time warp!
15 minutes behind leader in my group who assured me she'd had a shocker of a run.
Softened greatly by L having a good run ( is vicarious success a thing ?!)

Friday Jun 16 #

run 40:53 [3] 5.11 km (8:00 / km)

Slow hilly jog with Callum. Legs a bit sore from last night. Light rain.

cycle 1:41:00 [3] 28.0 km (3:36 / km)

Cycle with Kay that we'd talked of doing for some time. Used her time and distance ( as surprise surprise I paused my garmin for a bit.) very scenic ride up Old Norton Summit road to Norton Summit, around to Marble Hill road and back down Montacute road. K pointed out lots of interesting things so felt like a nice tour. Wet my appetite for some cycle touring!

run 48:31 [3] 8.09 km (6:00 / km)

Run 2. Run with Bridget , Fern and crazy Bear. Last we will see of B for a while!! Loop around Western part of Belair then back along cMinnow creek and Sturt Ave. Felt better than I expected although the Bear engine helped. Treated myself after to a hot bath with salts which my tired legs appreciated. I haven't had a hot bath for years!
