kayaking 1:05:00 [3]

Another sunny day so a great opportunity to kayak - especially as I have a day off.
Did the same as Sunday but also practised some 'self rescue' - i.e. getting back on the ski after a capsize. Did this under the watchful eye of all the lunchtime people sitting in their cars and gazing out to sea. It went surprisingly well - will be a different story in actual tippy conditions (the conditions which tip you out in the first place) but at least I know I can do it theoretically.

Orienteering 31:56 [3]

Run on new map at Peter Murrell Reserve - so very close by. Lots of fun but didn't have a perfect run so got beaten by a minute by lots of people!

kayaking 1:05:00 [3]

Kayak from kingston beach towards blackmans bay - when the chop made me too nervous I turned and surfed into browns river to do a bridge to bridge lap and work on technique. My new boat is beautiful and it loves to surf - it is really responsive steering wise and stays straight on the waves(as opposed to turning side on and tipping over). I love it but I'm going through a new learning curve for the stability side of things out at see. I wish I had a paddling buddy.

Friday May 27, 2011 #


Kids, cakes, chores, class prep all day - didn't get to bed until after midnight. disasterous week really.

kayaking 30:00 [3]

Quick session on my new boat getting it set up correctly for me - involved paddling in and out of the beach a few times - but was fun.

Wednesday May 25, 2011 #


Crash and burn. Left for work at 7.30, didn't get home until 10.30 after AutoDownload orienteering seminar. couldn't get the trainer out as it was too noisy and couldn't face going to gym.

Cycle Trainer 1:00:00 [3]

An hour on the trainer while I watched Survivor Redemption Island. First time I've used one so both the novelty and sweat factor were high.

Swimming 35:00 [3]

In other news my boat has arrived! yay. Might get out on it before the icebergs float down the river

Livelys Bog. Tired but happy to have a smooth run with no mistakes. Very happy my ankle lasted the three days. Had a fun trip

Saturday May 21, 2011 #

Orienteering race 22:09 [3]

UTAS - NOL event - 2.9km. Dragged my sluggish butt around the course - really enjoyed it - 25 controls. Missed a couple as they were tricky/hidden so lost maybe a minute all up but had a fun fun time.

Orienteering race 41:00 [3]

Dumdilldeldum or something. wet & boggy but happy to make it through with a smooth run and no ankle probs.

Running 27:00 [3]

pretty terrible half hour jog just to prove I still could after this weeks illness and my rolled ankle last week. would have rather been kayaking but couldn't squeeze it in today.

cycling 30:00 [3]

Prob only just 30 minutes as went from Casino to work in the morning , then work to sandown in the afternoon. Couldn't will myself to go all the way home so stopped at chemist for cough medicine then got a lift with jon the rest of the way.

Walking 35:00 [3]

Stroll from south end of Kingston beach just to confirm I'm still alive. Went to Boronia beach where the only footsteps were mine and a wallaby's.

Saturday May 14, 2011 #

Walking 1:30:00 [3]

Had to leave my sick-couch to meet Jo and Miriam for a lovely walk through the snow from the springs. Was really nice. Am getting flu and it's freezing outside though so not sure what tomorrow will bring.

Swimming 35:00 [3]

Glad to have only swimming on the sports menu today as I've been feeling a little bit weary lately.

Looks like I'll be coming for stankle surgery in melbourne in July

cycling 1:00:00 [3]

10 minutes into work from the casino then 50 minutes all the way home. it was really cold!

GYM - cardio 1:00:00 [3]

Had planned to do the usual 30 then zip off to the pool for a swim - but then I decided since I wasn't otherwise going up to the city (normally I combine a swim with kid pickup or something) that my time was better spent in the gym. So did 30 on the bike, 20 on the cross trainer and rowed a couple of kays. felt sufficently sweaty and stinky by the end.

GYM - cardio 30:00 [3]

kayaking 1:00:00 [3]

There was a dusting of snow on the mountain but I was quite cosy in my kayak with wetsuit legs on - despite the north westerly chop sloshing water over me from time to time.

Injured and cross.
And I also forgot to do my tipping this week. sheesh.

Running 45:00 [3]

Just as I was enjoying running on the soft surface of peter murrell reserve I rolled my ankle - so the situation is either my ankle is stuffed because of the original problem and I can't do anything, or when that is temporarily less acute, I roll it because I pronate so MUCH on that side nowadays because of years of hobbling around when the ankle is inflamed that I can't place my foot flat and there's only about 1 degree of difference between a foot plant and a rolled ankle. it sucks.

kayaking 1:05:00 [3]

Nice to be back on the water. From south end of kingston beach I went south towards blackmans bay - after 10 or so minutes I got a bit nervous with the chop going one way and the swell going the other so I turned around and then kayaked up to the north end of the beach, took on the waves and surfed into browns river. Then up to bridge and back.

Soccer 25:00 [3]

Backyard soccer one on one against Toby (7) the soccer playing boy wonder. Took my best game to beat him 3-2. And if the goals had been a foot higher I would have been toasted by his long range shots. Am covered in sweat. I was wearing gum boots.

Swimming 35:00 [3] 1.5 km (23:20 / km)

Was a nice day today but aside from a couple of hours spent moving mulch from Mulch Mountain to various parts of the garden I spent it planning courses and doing orienteering stuff.

Monday May 2, 2011 #

GYM - cardio 40:00 [3]

Had plans to take advantage of the windless day and get out for a paddle but Jett was sick so I had to content myself with hauling 2 cubic metres of mulch around the garden and a late night trip to the gym.
