Mac - North Epping via Devlins Creek Loop With Steve. Using headtorches. Legs felt good but ate too soon and needed a pit stop at North Epping Oval. First time right along Devlins Creek Trail for me, great running area!

Right Handed Hit at Mac 5 Games with Stan. Won 3-2 Played really well tonight but more happy that I've played 3 days in a row of tough squash and wrist felt 100%. Such a good feeling being able to hit the ball how and where I want again. Got some good form back too

Right Handed Hit at MAASH Helping out Kajan. Been a year since we started hitting and a huge improvement technically and tactically. Very underrated.

SSS #2 "Whale Rock" - North Epping
520 3rd JM and 10th Overall
Quick planning meant i probably didn't have the best route with lots of route options - great course setting! Took it easy after 29 to save legs for squash
Errors: Carelessly overshot 14 (20 sec) Again overshot 12 (30 sec) Couldn't find the ruin at 28 (30 sec) Bushbashed it to 11 when road would have been quicker (15 sec) Went up the wrong road near 29 (1 min) Went down a driveway that looked like an open area near 26 (1 min) Got lost behind the houses looking for 30 (20 sec)
Dropped: 13, 25 and 21

Right Handed Pennant at Mac Won 3-1 vs MD 275 1st Game - got off to a slow start and didn't feel like i was in much of a rhythm. Ball was skidding which i couldn't pick up on. Went down narrowly 15-13. Bit annoyed i played so slow in this game - was still warming back up after Orienteering. I knew he would tire so was understandable he would come out strong in the 1st 2nd & 3rd Game - fired myself up and played at a higher intensity. He was struggling and i felt like i got some great form back. Played similar to sunday's match vs Bruce. Chopping in these two games. Maybe it was the change of shirt? 4th Game - Pretty even throughout as i probably dropped the intensity the slightest. At 13-13 i put in a dive and won the point thanks to a "Compassionate Tin". Won 16-14. Good win overall and still felt like i could've played another 2 of these matches after. Next time - keep up the focus with controlled, high intensity throughout.
Ride to Squash. Only one week until Spring Cycle and i've hardly done any riding, time to get back into it!

Left Handed 17min Timed. Won 36-35 vs DC 125. Probably my hardest match of the day mainly because he was very consistent and could run everything down. Mentally i was getting a little tired as i hadn't eaten since breakfast and was playing stupid shots. Was behind the whole game until managed to sneak a 2 point lead in the last minute and held on. 5th overall. I wanted a crack at the 3/4 players!
