kayaking 1:15:00 [3]

group paddle - very sprinty - 4 x short, 3 x longer, 3 x even longer (but still only 3 or 4 mins) then 1 x 10

tough going but satisfying.

paddle group. roaring easterly so we did out and backs from the beach. it was the sort of conditions I wouldn't go out in by myself but was ok in a group - had one moment where I was sure I was a gonna but it turned out ok!

Lovely relaxed paddle from franklin around north egg island then back. It's not just the paddle that was nice but the drive down there and back is really nice too.
I wore my sunglasses to minimise the chances of the blindness which struck me yesterday!

flat feeling paddle from kingston. had troubles with one eye watering continuously from about 1/4 of the way. it got worse and by the time I was back at the car both were doing it. managed to just drive home and as I write this my eyes are red and half screwed shut. might need to p ut on sunglasses. weird. i do have a light cold - perhaps that has something to do with it.

cycling 1:40:00 [3]

felt particularly flat. luckily jon lured me out with the promise of driving me up to fern tree so I cycled out to the end of pipeline, then down wolf's road, then over picket hill and home.

cycling 30:00 [3]

with Jett on the city cycleway - we went about 10k. the plan was to go to the Valhalla ice-cream shop but jett was going well so we kept going a bit. Tragically on our way back we discovered the shop was closed on Mondays! v.sad.

cycling 1:20:00 [3]

xc course at st virgils school. haven't ridden there before (as it's a fair drive away). it was great fun. more like forrest than tasmania with twists and turns and technical features without giant hill climbs! did 3 . 5 laps. first following john w around, 2nd one taking miriam around, and 3rd by myself plus a bit extra while I waited for miriam. managed to take the A line on all the obstacles with only one slow motion gumby fall.

peter murrell. i've been avoiding it over summer as it is quite exposed and gets quite hot and sandy and snaky. Today it was ok - certainly sandy though, but saw no snakes. forecast is for 29 but it's cloudy so didn't get to hot. pleased with myself for getting out there!

kayaking 15:00 [3]

warmup for time trial. whenever we do sprints with slow paddles in between and also warm ups I notice that my idea of a slow paddle or a warm up is a lot slower than everyone else's!

kayaking 52:00 [3]

8k time trial. gave it all i had. was frustratingly slow downwind - I felt like I was doing well but people kept coming past me. Happy with how I went in the side-wind/swell and the choppy upwind. recent training has certainly improved things!

Running 20:00 [3]

post kayak run along beach as part of group training. funny how I sunk like a stone into the soft sand as I attempted to run across it! and got dropped like a stone on the hills!

am gonna hurt tomorrow!

cycling 2:15:00 [3]

from waterworks up to fern tree, out to end of pipeline, back to neika, down wolfs road, through to leslie vale, up to picket hill, then 15 mins of downhill fun back to home.

felt good by the end but at the one hour mark coming along the pipeline I felt awful. really need to do more shorter cycles rather than leaving it a week and doing something long to try and make up for it!
also need to pack nurafen.

kayaking 1:01:00 [3]

early paddle to blackmans bay then I did 10 x 40 sec sprints, then 10 x 20 sec sprints.

lovely morning.

kayaking 1:20:00 [3]

from Franklin down river around bottom of egg island for a change. I've never gone south before so that was cool.spent 10 extra minutes out there taking photos with my increasingly erratic camera.

Running 45:00 [3]

alum cliffs - 2nd run in a week - woohooooo! felt ok. didn't time it, just guessed..

Saturday Jan 12, 2013 #

kayaking 1:35:00 [3]

paddle from marieville, up to docks (went to far side this time) then turned and went with light wind back to kingston where strangely it was a howling headwind when I rounded the rocks onto the beach. really enjoyed it and feel like my paddling is getting back on track. yay.

Friday Jan 11, 2013 #

Running 50:00 [3]

Truganinni track - 22.41 up - ran to split tree then staggared/ran the rest of the way. walked back down as no benefit was to be had by running.

Thursday Jan 10, 2013 #

kayaking 1:00:00 [3]

paddle group. felt a bit better than normal in the boring slog to taroona and back. hopefully we'll be mixing up the sessions more in the future.

kayaking 1:25:00 [3]

calm conditions to start with off kingston beach but by the time i got back it was a struggle to get the boat safely onto the car so I had to ask a passer by to give me a hand! It's still vert windy so I'm off to put the boat's safety belt on to stop if blowing off its storage rack.

cycling 1:40:00 [3]

Down to the isthmus and back. really early. at least I thought it was really early until I bumped into Brendan who had been out walking with baby elouise for an hour already.

Thursday Jan 3, 2013 #

cycling 1:30:00 [3]

Headed down towards isthmus but due to series of events we turned back early so had time to do fossil cliffs loop as well. really nice.
