Walking 1:00:00 [2]
weight:63.6kg shoes: helios - black

What a perfect still sunny clear late winter's day. Gave Crumin the Classic Tour of Blackie - parked at substation, up left of quarry to Circum, one lap,
down the other side of quarry to see pixie house or troll house. The descent was bit uncomfortable for C's shoes but otherwise delightful. Did a bit of running on circum and admired snow on Gingera.

Walking 37:00 [2]
shoes: helios - black

On ridge with Crumin. Very windy damp and cold today. We were pressed for time due to C's lunch date with Mary's birthday so it was a bit short. Frog pond was milky yellow from clay due to recent rains. Just heard apparent temp is minus 1 although it's 1:30pm. Ran up one short hill.

Running (You've Got Options) 31:00 [3]
shoes: helios - black

I really enjoyed tonight's run. Cold with clear sky and bright stars with the Tower glowing many bright colours. Saw the others already in the reserve as I drove to substation so got out of car quickly and strode up hill. They passed me soon after the stone steps. I kept Rick in sight for a long time so I knew I was stronger than recent weeks. Nearly got the final dirt shortcut when I turned around to join the descent.

For lap of circum they gradually drew away, but again I kept up for much longer than usual. A more empty stomach (ate at 2pm instead of 4), no backpack and well rested helps. I told them not to wait because it was very cold and windy with drifts of rain. I had 3 layers on top for most of it! On the way down I took it easier jog walking and enjoying the beauty and solitude. Was rewarded by the calls then the sight of a Southern Boobook Owl (mopoke) which was pretty exciting. Don't know if I've seen one before but my head torch picked up the bright orange large forward facing eyes as it perched on a high branch. I may have talked to it a bit... then realised that the others had stopped to wait at bottom and maybe could hear me.

Dinner - I chose hot and sour soup and dipped vego rice paper rolls into it. Nice and light but still had bit of food hangover and restless evening. But I said NO to icecreams :)

I would have walked more than 10mins. The 31mins above took me up to nearly top and a complete circum so wanted to record that.

return of the flu this week although I am pretending it didn't. That doesn't seem to have worked. Sensible rest may commence now.

A lap of the bottom of blackie with Crumin on one small banana. A bit spacey by the end.

Strength Stability Suppleness (yoga class) 1:30:00 [1]

Candle meditation puts me in touch with how tired I really am. Wonder if it works that way for everyone. At the end of the class no-one spoke, all silent, so it must have had a strong effect on everyone. We were all zombies for 5 minutes or so.

Walking 1:00:00 [2]
shoes: old blue trailrocs

With crumn on ridge. Very bright sunlight today to made a return to sun screen. Did 4 short fast surges up steep hills, rest was walking.

Couldn't go in the morning because the ABC came to my house to film and record. Apparently I am a rubbish champion.
