Garvey Park Parkrun. Matt suggested a 5k run last night but we were just about to eat a fairly late dinner so I suggested Parkrun instead. He stopped responding after I told him the start time so I didn't really expect him to show up but it seemed a good excuse to go and check out the new course anyway. Running the B course due to Tonkin Hwy works so there were a couple of nice loops around the limestone paths before an out and back on the river path. Found myself next to John Herzfeld early so chatted to him until I pulled ahead after the one small hill. There were some nice little rough sections early on but I had to take them slowly because the guy in front of me kept jumping from side to side so I was scared he would take me out if I tried to go past. Tried to just keep it comfortable but I can never resist speeding up a little at the end.

Warm down with Rachel.
On Tuesday morning I tried to arrange for Liam to hit with Nic on Saturday but didn't get any response from him when I tried to confirm details so we went over together around 11 so I could do Saturday singles if Nic was there or hit with Liam if he wasn't. Nic wasn't there so I hit with Liam on the hard court. Threw the frisbee for a little while on the way home.

Easy run with Rachel while kids did S&C. I was reluctant to start running and expected my legs to feel super stiff and heavy but actually it just felt super easy.
Mixed doubles pennants at Cottesloe. Won the first two sets with Tischa 6-1 6-0 and split the next two with Lisa 6-3 4-6. Had a long break in the middle as Mike and Lisa's first set went to a tie breaker. Some tight sets and some one sided because Cott's number 2 woman was much better than their number 1.
