Strength Stability Suppleness 10:00 [1]

core, back stretch, single leg squats - flat foot and on toes with hand on table for balance

Cycling 10:00 [2]

Running 42:30 [3]
shoes: helios - black

A very good run with Po on ridge. 5 mins walk warm up then mostly continuous running. Spine gluts hams settled down pretty well so that eventually running felt natural and more flowing. Still felt ready to stop at end but hadn't had breakfast so that's ok. Po is my speed and we have good chats about permaculture principles and pilates.
It rained gently the whole time, perfect cool morning!

With the tiniest trickle of a cold still hanging around this week - the odd sneeze and runny nose, I decided that for parkrun this morning I would... Sleep in!

Blackie std loop with the Fred. Felt tired and stiff which is the expected come down after so many shows. Good to get out and take it easy. Felt better afterwards. Tried a mere handful of seconds of running a few times. Will get back running on weekend

Cycling 21:00 [3]

to Canb Comedy fest final show, I think I reached another level for improv music - have worked pretty hard on it lately and changed the approach. The actors were so good tonight, absolute cracker of a show.
Cycling there I passed a guy who was definitely going a touch slower than I wanted to. So I passed him, then i just got this feeling... and sure enough he accelerated and was just behind me all the way to civic. I'm sure he really wanted to pass. I could hear the breathing but summoned my legs to give me everything and he wasn't able to. When I turned off I glanced across to make sure it was still him. Very important to appear nonchalant and unconcerned in these situations, I think I managed to.

black mtn with the Fred. So much talking we accidentally went a different way. Didn't go too hard up hill so I would have good peak energy for show tonight in Canb Comedy Fest
5 PM

Cycling 20:00 [2]

Rode to the show. Went well mainly because I prepared and warmed up piano improvising very thoroughly for couple of hours beforehand.

Running 16:30 [3]
shoes: helios - black

Finally got a half decent night's sleep so feeling a bit better. Solo jog on bruce ridge. rode to far side and did log run happy wanderer loop just once. Did some drills and many short walk breaks but calling this a run for simplicity. Little bit of symptoms in R glute/ham and lower back but managed to move well.
A slow 16mm of rain overnight made the path soft and the bush beautiful. Didn't see anyone at all, apart from a grey fantail and wallaby

Cycling 15:00 [3]

bit more commuting - dentist and other stuff
