Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

another flat tyre


for future reference... is running (or cycling) on your own ok if we get told to stay home and self isolate?

Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

not raining!
I accidentally ran over a (nearly) legless lizard on the bike path and turned it into 3 pieces. it was dark and there was lots of junk on the bike path, and I only realised that it wasn't a stick as it went under my wheel. i'm sad that I killed it :-(


FB (targeted?) advertising - assisted holidays for people with disabilities. I thought I was going ok, but maybe I haven't pulled up so well from the sprint weekend after all.

pilates 1:00:00 [1]

my pilates instructor is working on a corona inspired playlist. so far it includes 'absolutely everybody' and 'around the world'.
also aparently my dead-lift technique is improving. I was putting too much stretch on my hammys at the start before.

Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

another wet commute, but they've cleaned up the bike path today.
learnt from yesterday's cold ride home and wore a gilet. also discovered that my right pedal was in the process of shitting itself, but I'm taking it as a win, cos I found it and changed the pedals at home instead of it falling apart mid ride.

Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

pissing rain. the bike path behind the grammar schools had its semi-regular top dressing with horse shit (I've never seen a horse there, but apparently it got used as a stock-route last night), which combined with the rain meant dodging manure slurry. gross.

Orienteering race 19:58 [5]

NOL 3 at Granite hills. bush sprint! yay! crazy little area with big punishment for not being super careful with compass. fun running with lots of people around. Krystal should learn that I am old and slow these days, and she shouldn't keep waiting for me ;-)

Orienteering race 18:06 [5]

NOL 4 sprint relay at La Trobe. first leg, which is never my favourite. everything was starting to tighten up, so this was run in damage limitation mode. ok area, but the course planning seemed overly convoluted. all the difficulty was in figuring out where the next control was on the map rather than actual navigation... as seen by the number of dnfs.

Running warm up/down 1:00:00 [2]

both races

Orienteering race 20:04 [5]

NOL 1 and WRE at Overnewton. steady race, on par with my very low expectations. 1 mistake - went to the wrong level on 2, as a lot of people did, but I think I got the rest of the route choices. generally tired and legs feeling pretty heavy. didn't want to push it too much with 3 more races.

Orienteering race 19:34 [5]

NOL 2 at Deakin. Much trickier race - picked most of the route choices, except 10, where I got stuck in a dead end. ended up running with Liv for the second part of the course - good motivation to get moving a bit quicker, even if the body didn't appreciate it too much.

Running warm up/down 1:00:00 [2]
