cycling 1:10:00 [3]

Should have been on my road bike for my loop towards margate, left at golf club, around howden, up and over hill to blackmans bay an home. it was pretty hilly all over so maybe my mountain bike was better - who knows.

Orienteering 1:30:00 [3]

technical training at stringy bark creek. feel suitably tired.

Thursday Mar 25, 2010 #


intentional rest day. however after mowing lawn, training the passionfruit vine and whipper-snippering some edges (very badly) I am completely exhausted. the hot weather didn't help.

Running 47:00 [3]

pipeline track. thank goodness it was flat.

Tuesday Mar 23, 2010 #

Running 50:00 [3]

sluggy run along alum cliffs. Felt satisfyingly buggered after yesterday and was nursing some injuries sustained in my cliff-hanger 6-4, 6-5 win in a round of the royal tennis pennant last night (mental note : concrete is HARD).

cycling 15:00 [3]

whooosh - a quick try-out of my re-conditioned 1992 road bike! Squeezed my feet into the shoes, got the hang of the gear levers (they're on the frame - how inconvenient!), got used to the low riding position and zipped down to souicide bend and back before collecting the gang of monkeys from school. fun. 2 new tyres and new tubes also add to confidence levels!

Running 1:09:00 [3]

Waterworks run - from bottom up up up to ferntree tavern, then down down down back again. As stix mentioned when he was here, the problem wiht hobart is that there are no good loop runs - and he's right - the only loop runs generally involve a bucketload of hills such that you spend the 1st half of the run going up, the second half going down.
peter murrell reserve is an exception i guess, but there's only so much you can do there (although it is soft and easy-on-the-stankle).

Swimming 30:00 [3]

easy relaxed k and a bit at the aquatic centre.

Orienteering race 20:00 [3]

I did my ankle 4 weeks before easter last year so this year I have been getting increasingly anxious about stuffing it again and consequently having to spend the event surrounded by snotty children in the creche tent. Today the terrain was so rocky I almost pulled out on the taped route to the start circle.

Decided to keep walking/running for a few controls for the navagational practise but never got into it and my distance estimation was shot. Spent 10 minutes looking for a root mound in a large area of unmapped root mounds. Had an attack of the Sooky-la-las and also the Whothefuckputsacontrolonarootmoundsurroundedbyunmappedrootmound-itis.
pulled out and ran back on the track to the finish.

cycling 45:00 [3]

From Casino to Home. had a tailwind and a new shirt on (K-mart - $25) so felt quite zippy.

Swimming 20:00 [3]

Once again a quick 1k while the kids did their lessons.

Friday Mar 19, 2010 #

Running 1:05:45 [3]

Mountain run - up to springs etc. 20:00 from fern tree to springs. If that's not close to a record I'll eat my sweaty socks.

Running 25:00 [3]

I recon I should have a special colour for this one as it was actually sprint interval training - in the form of puzzle sprints - a survivor like challenge where you had to fetch puzzle pieces (made from a map) and put them together one at a time, 50 metres away. Amazing the mistakes I started making when I got buggered - i.e. attempting to put my piece into someone elses puzzle - duh! Won the individual challenge anyway though and amv.sore. Stankle held up fine and has actually been pretty good since a few days off last week.

Orienteering 34:00 [3]

waterworks. I'm thinking of getting my own trophy made up - just in case the easter 3 day never comes to south hobart.

Tuesday Mar 16, 2010 #

Running 42:42 [3]

Due to navigational mistakes in the car I ended running from lambert park up to the signal station and back. tough as nails I am. maybe tomorrow things will go to plan

Monday Mar 15, 2010 #

cycling 1:18:00 [3]

Things just didn't go to plan today but got out for a trip out along pipeline track which was nice. no snakes today so that was 3 less than yesterday.

cycling 40:00 [3]

pathetic little loop from home that a cyclist on a bike that weighed less than a tractor could do in 10 minutes.

Swimming 20:00 [3]

Qiuck 1km while `kids doing lesson. forgot underwear to change into - had to wear towel around neck to following kids party.

Friday Mar 12, 2010 #

Running 45:00 [3]

Alum Cliffs. Was the last place I wanted to run today cos of my tired legs and the hills, but beggars can't be choosers and I only had a small window of opportunity to do anything.

Thursday Mar 11, 2010 #

Orienteering race 33:00 [3]

waterworks corporate series. I am so going to kick arse next time easter is held at the waterworks over a 30 minute course.

Basketball race 35:00 [3]

got 4 fouls by half time. More fouls that points in fact. Also had to wash blood from a stack at the orienteering off my legs before I could play. Umpires probably thought I looked a bit rough and ruled accordingly.

Wednesday Mar 10, 2010 #

Orienteering 31:00 [3]

school series mt nelson. ran up the steep hills even cos did nothing else today.

Tuesday Mar 9, 2010 #

Running 30:00 [3]

blobbly run around bicheno. if every event at easter takes 30 minutes I'll be set.

Friday Mar 5, 2010 #

Walking 1:20:00 [3]

Walk around dove lake then up the boardwalk towards info centre for 6k. caught the shuttle bus back to the transit station (via dove lake therefore undoing all my good work) then got in the car and drove BACK towards dove lake again to see wombats. luckily we saw some good wombats so it was all worthwhile.

Thursday Mar 4, 2010 #
