Street-O at Yarraville, a somewhat unusual destination for me (I'm otherwise engaged tomorrow evening and the Thursday events have stopped). Didn't go far enough north on my course to experience such local icons as the Franco Cozzo store or the Napier Street bridge (almost as notorious as Montague Street, and currently the subject of a petition
to paint it with scary shark teeth).
The run itself was a fairly typical evening street-O this season, with the back a challenge, although improved in the second half. It was a 45-minute score event; my original plan was to pull up at around 35, similar to other evening events this season, but I was tempted by the cluster of controls in the southwest and pushed on to 40 to get myself close enough to the finish to walk the rest and still make it inside the time limit. (By then I was within 500 metres of the finish, but I want to maximise my chance of doing something tomorrow).
Flood updates in places which aren't in the headlines but may be of interest to readers of this log: (a) the Naas bridge, the main access to Namadgi, has washed away and (b) Storm King Dam near Stanthorpe (which was effectively dry in the 2019 drought, requiring town water to be trucked in) is expected to fill tonight.
