cycling 55:00 [3]

from the car place, so an extra 10 minutes away from work. just as i was going past the closest bit to home the very cold rain started to kick in. but i was stoic, and also singing that weddings/parties/anything song that goes ... "I've got the sun in my eyes, i've got the wind in my face I've got the rain in my heart...."

cycling 50:00 [3]

annoyingly windy headwind, but forecast and schedule looks crap for rest of week so I will appreciate riding today regardless.

Walking 3:30:00 [3]

Felt a lot more tired in 2nd half of today's walk, despite having a much lighter pack! At least I didn't feel as sore as Jonno (see blog)

windy headwind but I was fine. One more leg and the elusive triple double will be achieved!

cycling 50:00 [3]

uneventful ride in. hoping for continued northerly on way home.

cycling 45:00 [3]

nice tail wind today but I was lucky to come out unscathed after an incident with an oblivious 4wd driver. almost did the 'bang on the driver window' thing but I coudn't imagine any outcome of that, that wouldn't have just made me even more angry. so I just stewed on it the rest of the way home.

cycling 45:00 [3]

I'm claiming 45 mins this morning as it was calm and sunny and I felt good.

cycling 50:00 [3]

commute home - moderate headwind. busted a gut to catch a big guy on a mountain bike (took me 3k of head down pushing) then 30 seconds after I caught him I stopped to say hello to Jon who was driving the other direction. so that was the end of my free ride through taroona!

Running 35:00 [3]

waterworks. so slooooooooowwwww.... I think I saw a snail go past, but it was such a blur I couldn't tell....

cycling 50:00 [3]

ride to work. sunny, windless. lovely

cycling 50:00 [3]

ride home. hefty headwinds. I got passed by a roadie on a flat section in taroona but after we started up the hill I channelled clare and her 1.5 lungs and caught back up to him by the top.. Clare with two lungs never would have let him get past in the first place of course.

Orienteering 36:00 [3]

conningham - bit of a hill, but mostly tracks. nice to be running.

Walking 2:00:00 [3]

walk to pelverata falls. we were in a hurry so we only had 10 minutes to eat lunch and admire the falls before walking back.

Running 50:00 [3]

Truganini track.
"running" is a bit of a stretch - I ran until the split tree, then stumbled the rest of the way. ran what I could back down again. to the top in 25.19

cycling 50:00 [3]

uneventful yet pleasant commute - no sleeves for first time of season. Also, unfortunately, no glasses, so had to remove some bugs from my eyes!

cycling 50:00 [3]

I had a headwind, and no wind-break but I was stoic.

Running 35:00 [3]

Waterworks - foot felt funny. ran though it until it felt less funny.

cycling 25:00 [3]

from mum's to work, then up to aquatic centre and back. I overtook an e-bike AND a road rider on the way to the pool as I didnt' want to miss Zali's 25 metre race. Made it by about 3 minutes and she came 2nd. Phew! She was called into the interschool team as a replacement at 7:15am this morning - so she'll be stoked - as was I, to get one last chance to see her race at primary school.

cycling 50:00 [3]

cycle home. freezing - almost hail

Walking 3:00:00 [3]

cathedral rock walk with the kids - marking the first walk of the official overland track training season (Nov / Dec). Walk was lovely. Last time I did this was in September last year and I got spooked by snakes - took about an hour longer this time with the kids which is to be expected especially as I was running bits of it last time. we stopped for a play in the very-low river on the way back
