running 37:28 [3] 6.42 km (5:50 / km) +2m 5:50 / km

4x400m on Birchgrove Oval.

As I was heading to the oval I saw a woman reverse into a parked car. It made a loud crunching noise. Not a lot of damage, but definitely visible. I commented to the driver: “you are going to leave a note aren’t you?” She said yes, of course. I carried on running, but noting her rego number: VZN937.

When I passed again after doing my intervals, her car was gone, and there was no note on the damaged car. I felt duty bound to get a pen and paper from someone up the street, to leave a message about the car that did the damage.

running 28:51 [3] 5.09 km (5:40 / km) +78m 5:16 / km
ahr:152 max:163

Still feeling sluggish. Not time for a long run - I have meetings all day, but at least there was a lunch break.

The entries to the Domain were blocked by crowds protesting for action on climate change. There was a fantastic turnout. One poster I saw had a picture of Morrison clutching a piece of coal and a banner asking “want lies with that?” A usual rule of thumb is for every person who takes action to protest, there are ten silent people who agree. 80,000 turnout must be noticed.

In the lift this morning I heard some investment bankers saying “we’ve spoken to them all, and they all say they won’t fund coal”. Just maybe there’s hope of action in the next five years.

running 30:06 [3] 5.06 km (5:57 / km) +83m 5:30 / km
ahr:148 max:159

After two days off I thought I would feel fresher. But I didn’t. I guess that’s the effects of the cold still being felt.

Nothing. It was raining hard all day and I have a cold.

running 25:53 [3] 5.01 km (5:10 / km) +84m 4:46 / km
ahr:158 max:178

Maybe getting a cold.

Tried to do 4k in 20 minutes. Went 3 seconds over.

I read a blog talking about how good the Swiss were at running downhill. I noticed the same thing in Sweden. And I have a tendency to ease off in the downhills. Maybe I should do some practice on running faster downhill.

running 1:00:24 [3] 10.01 km (6:02 / km) +44m 5:54 / km

Spent the day on family duties - afternoon tea with Granny and the cousins. Got out late.

Mystery knee collapse 3/4 of the way through. Nothing serious.
