road bike 2:42:00 [3] 70.0 km (2:19 / km) +680m 2:12 / km

planned a morning ride but managed to sleep in until it was nice and hot (i.e. 9am). got out about 4.30 but still hot and ridiculously humid. did cootha (11.20 climb) then a full river loop then was feeling especially hardcore so hit cootha again after 2hrs on the go. managed a negative split on the climb (11.00) which im stoked with. still felt pretty strong up until the end.

shoes: Nike Air Pegasus+ 25

Park-O at UQ Ipswich
Frickin hot is all I can say....Had a few hesitations and slightly longer than optimal route choices but managed to hold it together for a win. I would kinda like to know where this speed/fitness people keep talking about is coming from.....

Running race 43:05 [5] 10.5 km (4:06 / km) +250m 3:40 / km
shoes: Nike Air Pegasus+ 25

MousDash Mt Cootha Smackdown!!!
wasnt too sure what to expect with this race. straight into the climb was quite brutal but figured it was going to be a race of the hard men so i had to toughen up. started to hurt about 3/4 of the way up and managed to go over the top in 5th position in something like 12 minutes. struggled around the undulations across the top and got passed by 2 girls and 2 guys. feet and knees got some punishment coming down. was really tighening up around the bottom and up the hill past slaughter falls resulting in getting caught. managed to break away from the guy down the final hill to come in 9th overall, 3rd in the 20-29s and the first Mo across the line. good race and very happy with the result. fitness could be better though.

park o at Mt Cootha gardens
quite possibly the most technical park map in the universe! managed to get around without losing too much time. fitness and a lingering hangover held me back up some of the hills though.just got pipped by lorenzo....bugger!

road bike 1:38:00 [3] 41.0 km (2:23 / km)

had to blow off some steam after a poor performance in a unit operations exam this arvo. lap of cootha (11.20 up) then half river loop. lost interest around west end and just plodded home. now i have 17 hours to learn everything there is to know about chemical reaction engineering....

Mt Nebo - Mt Glorious - Samford loop with Olly, Doogs and his mate for a while. about 46mins from the gap to jolly's lookout. i like that climb. managed to smoke olly up the hills but cracked a bit on the undulating roads coming back into samford. doogs is just an animal....

Orienteering race 21:20 [4] 4.5 km (4:44 / km)
shoes: Nike Air Pegasus+ 25

park o at botanic gardens. was pretty psyched for this one and was able to pull out a reasonable race apart from a small wobble or two. about 30 seconds clear of the rest of the field. reasonably happy with fitness at this time of the year but lots of room for improvement.

road bike 2:47:00 [3] 76.0 km (2:12 / km)

got sick of procrastinating so decided to do something productive. mt cootha (11.10) then down to toowong for a full river loop. felt really good by the time i got back onto coro drv so added on another half river loop (cut across green bridge). good fun and no ill effects from tuesday to be seen. base training is awesome

ride with the boys up to redcliffe via city, nundah, boondall and sandgate. pushed into a headwind the whole way up but good pace on way home. good sunset over the water and hinterland coming back across horinbrook bridge then got the full moon on the other side about 30 mins late. winding through the wetlands flat out at night is a buzz but i may have shat myself once or twice. good times
