Gym (Upper Body & Core) 51:52 [3]
ahr:93 max:141 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Gosh people messing around on machines and making ppl wait is annoying.

Otherwise good session - sadly with Emma going away not sure how/when I will be going next - might try work from home and distribute the day to give the opportunity to the gym during the day.

No gym tonight as preparing for night 3 at the children's hospital - poor Maddy at least she's on the mend

No gym as we’ve racking up another pch visit 3 or 4th in 2 or so weeks... #hatewinter. Now to switch with Emma to go do the night shift on the parents bed.

Gym (Upper Body & Core) 46:16 [3]
ahr:99 max:137 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Again wasn't really feeling it but got to get back into it - body let me know I had 2-3 weeks since the last time I did this session and I found it pretty bloody hard to be fair.

Clearly, gastro followed by 24 rogaine follow by week + of head cold wasn't the best rest.

Gym (Hardcore) 38:26 [3]
ahr:94 max:128 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

The session was uninspiring and more of a struggle to just get in there and do it - ended up cutting the session short as I CBF with the last set of 3.

Really glad I did as in under the 1hr I was gone Will went from being alright to struggling for breath and unable to cry and Emma had the ambulance crew there when I got home! He gets croup so fast it's scary - thankfully the steroids were starting to work and Emma could follow the ambulance to the hospital and not have to wake Maddy. Here's to hoping she's fine as she was chestie tonight before bed...

On my front - cold almost all gone (i think) weight regained to 70 (bad eating always wins) ankle still fucked (nothing new).

Week off post rogaine mainly because head cold been putting me in my place hard. Physically recovered by Tuesday but for ankle which is still problematic but nothing new there.

I think there's a few more days off to recover fully from cold.

Also, a bit of a struggle to regain weight after dropping post gastro and rogaine to around 67.5 ish which in my mind is getting a bit too low for my liking.

Rogaining race (Mr Rogaine Winter 24 P1.2) 1:10:00 [5] 5.0 km (14:00 / km) +120m 12:30 / km
shoes: Sidi Tiger Carbon MTB SPD Shoe

Rough guess on time/distance/climb

Will be pretty close. So from gps death, we turned to go back to the hash - picked up two controls and had a lot of track work so the pace was reasonable. Had some bad stomach pains so was glad to get back.

Had a really good feed at HH and then took Daves tent as I had pre-discussed with Dave prior to the event in case I did indeed implode (yes it was always on the cards).

Got a reasonably good 5 hour sleep but right quad tightened significantly and I got a lot of pain starting through the kneecap which really put the next morning in doubt.

160 separates 3rd to 7th - gah we totally could’ve got that! #regrets
8 AM

Rogaining race (Mr Rogaine Winter 24hr P2) 3:53:46 [5] 14.61 km (16:00 / km) +323m 14:24 / km
shoes: Salomon XA Pro 3d M+

TLDR: we came 7th overall

So I have a death wish clearly as I got up feeling pretty depleted and very sore but really didn't want to let Grand down.

The first leg I very nearly vetoed it but leg 2 warmed me up and by leg 3 I was a bit more chipper. The pace was reasonable and we made some good tactical choices on the fly.

Right knee really became an issue on the last two legs and not sure if we had stayed out if it would have been ok or not to be fair. Thing is I didn't do electrolytes or salts on this morning session as I only thought it would be an hr or 2.

Saw some very cute lambs but also a heartbreaking moment of a lamb and mother who died/dying during birth (mother was still alive just).

Was good to get back to hash house and get some more food in and sit down - shame the fires still not going then as it was cold and I feel like it would keep more people for results - the problem is getting rid of it before everyone leaves!

Anyway results then home. felt sub par.

Post Race
- Probably shouldn't have started
- Grand was a great teammate, physically well matched and carried my fat ass in nav when I was struggling, however, I need someone who communicates or at least aware of my situation and able to talk to me then and I feel like maybe had he been communicative I might have weathered the night (maybe don't know)
- Felt good (Monday) morning and wondered... we still doing 4-5km/hr until 1:30am realistically we had 4 more hours or so of the night maybe had I pushed a few more gels and got in the right zone maybe we could have done that.
- Monday evening... realised just how much I put myself in the hurt locker and am now retrospectively really glad we can in because i'm not in good shape right now... I should know better < someone is going to quote for prosperity im sure. More of a cold/sick feeling and depleted than physically sore - body held up very well for the 70km knee is the only thing physically a bit tender.
