Nice to be in the sunshine on the shortest day. Up the valley to Redwoods up and over and down via Melville house track. Both dogs came too.

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

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 ?!)
run 40:53  5.11 km (8:00 / km)
Slow hilly jog with Callum. Legs a bit sore from last night. Light rain.
cycle 1:41:00  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  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!
