cycling 50:00 [3]

nice commute in. slight headwind but we got a draft from Jemery for the last k or 2.

cycling 50:00 [3]

lashed myself to Clare's rear wheel and she almost managed to pull me up to the top of Bonnet Hill, thereby avoiding her normal wait stop.

Orienteering 1:14:00 [3]

not my finest effort but with my new super-dork glasses I could at least see the map!

Orienteering 34:00 [3]

felt ok - foot was ok - but the entire race was on sand so it was hard to tell if it's still dodgy.
made a mistake on the only technical control!

cycling 48:00 [3]

lovely commute with clarabelle. Back to winter riding gear.

cycling 50:00 [3]

takeaway thai motivated ride home. capped off the evening with some furniture building. Perfect.

Walking 33:00 [3]

Started out as a run with Clare but after 5 minutes my foot was painful so we had to walk. I am suspicious it is a stress fracture which, given the big weekend wouldn't be a complete surprise. I'll rest it until the weekend orienteering (in the dunes so nice and soft) and see what happens.

cycling 48:00 [3]

More appropriately dressed morning commute. The first time I've worn bike shorts (rather than merino tights) since.... um... ages ago. Definitely was faster than 50 minutes too which was good going for an unassisted ride (Clare is on duties other than towing me in today)

Monday Sep 14, 2015 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

overdressed commute home! tail wind didn't really deliver as promised but it was nice anyway - and so nice that it is light.

Sunday Sep 13, 2015 #

Running 20:00 [3]

blob-a-jog around the caravan park precint and stewarts bay. very pretty.

Saturday Sep 12, 2015 #

Running 31:00 [3]

waterfall bay with Jon - at least part with Jon. He kept going to fortescue bay while I turned around and drove to meet him.
My back was SO stiff and sore to begin with (perhaps carrying a 20kg bag of concrete may have contributed - it felt ok at the time though), but loosened off a lot.

Running 1:45:00 [3]

Bivouac Bay - from Fortescue Bay, Took me AGES, both due to travelling slowly, and the condition of the track, which was reasonably poor (and in stark contrast to the fandangled Cape Huay feat of over-engineering track)

Walking 2:59:04 [3]

Cape Huay walk with the kids. A reasonably brisk pace particularly near the end so we could make it in under 3 hours!

Friday Sep 11, 2015 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

another good ride in.

Thursday Sep 10, 2015 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

swiftish commute with clare!

cycling 50:00 [3]

another rocket commute with clare - aided by mild tailwind. We arrived home 15 minutes ahead of schedule which meant we got to the shop that I thought closed at 9pm, but actually closed at 7pm, with 15 minutes to spare - which turned out to be just enough time for Clare to spot and purchase the perfect bed for her new mansion and some bargain bench stools. yay !

Wednesday Sep 9, 2015 #

Running 34:00 [3]

alum cliffs - started slow, decelerated through the middle, and slowed towards the end. uff.

Tuesday Sep 8, 2015 #

Running 43:00 [3]

peter murrell with Clarabelle. We both started like a pair of elderly ladies but finished off the run ok. I'm sure that if I had been by myself I would have started like an elderly lady and slowed down from there - so good to have company.

Running 1:24:00 [3]

Tas long champs - Rajah ROcks. My favourite map of the World Cup week - although I had exactly the same problems as I did on my race then too - I couldn't work out what bare rock was just mapped as open, what was bare rock, and what was nothing. So I couldn't trust my judgement.

Leg 1 -2 was LONG, and nasty, no nice options and I managed to run off the map both to the north and to the south of the map ON THE ONE LEG! which is something of an achievement. I would have sworn I lost about 20 minutes being almost completely lost but looking at the splits it was more like 10. The extra badjillion metres of climb I covered took it out of me though.

Only one lady beat me on the course but half of the blokes on the course beat us all (David Marshall had winning time in about 63 mins)

Saturday Sep 5, 2015 #

Running 55:00 [3]

I wouldn't have planned this run really, but I had to drop zali off at school at 7.30am, and jett's soccer game was at 9am, so filled in the time with a run up to Mt Nelson. It's very pretty but steep on the way up.

Friday Sep 4, 2015 #

Running 34:00 [3]

bookending the week with another short alum cliffs run

Thursday Sep 3, 2015 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

despite the wet roads and getting caught behind the usual double bus we duel with in some form during our journey, the tail wind helped us to a fastish commute

cycling 50:00 [3]

Caught up to Jemery in Taroona (he's now moved ot kingston), who revealed how his recent trip to Norway was rather humbling in orienteering terms. If he'd gone to the sweedish 5 day it would have been even more humbling I recon!

Wednesday Sep 2, 2015 #

cycling 55:00 [3]

morning commute. sunshine and lollypops until taroona when it was suddeny dank and foggy and I got a slow puncture at the casino but I made it to work and fixed it at lunchtime.

Tuesday Sep 1, 2015 #
