Running 44:00 [3]

skyline trail - as I had to use up time between dropping zali off for a bus to launceston, and coaching zali's soccer team at 9am. I seem to do all my runs when I'm waiting for , or being organised by, Zali.
Beautiful morning.

Orienteering race 1:00:00 [3]

Northern Classic on the dam side of trevalyn. Very wet and rainy the whole time. Did course 3 for first time in ages (normally do 4) but wanted to make most of trip to the north. Ran ok - fussed around in the control circles as the rock features on the map were tiny. like really really small and very hard to spot. Not a clean run but I'd be surprised if anyone got around cleanly with the miniature rock features and control hiding techniques that were being used.

Orienteering race 21:00 [3]

Tas sprint race - race 1.
This race was a mass start and we were only racing for start times in race two - so I took it easy and cruised around - no mistakes.

Well. one mistake- I walked past a dog tied up outside a toilet block on my way to start (about 2 minutes before start actually) and got bitten firmly on the butt. It felt like I'd sat on a barb wire fence and I now have two puncture marks surrounded by bruises about 8cm apart - dog obviously got a big mouthful and clamped jaws shut. humph.

Orienteering race 21:00 [3]

Sprint Champs final.
Ran ok but had a messy run navigation wise, mainly because I got distracted by other people - probably lost 2-3 minutes which was dumb and would have wiped me out on any other year.

but this year it was good enough to reclaim my w21 title (for forth time) - in fact I recon I had about 10 minutes to spare as there were only 2 of us and Sonia had a sore back so she couldn't run. Not sure why the juniors don't all run in w21 - you get your name on a big shield if you win! Anna dowling wasn't there either- she normally runs up for this event.

Running 30:00 [3]

very easy run around domain from botanical gardens while Zali swam. geez that place attracts some dodgy looking people.

Running 44:00 [3]

Peter Murrell reserve. only wanted to run 35 or so mins but due to lapse in space-time continuum, ended up running 44 minutes despite taking shortcuts of normal route. odd.

Running 1:05:00 [3]

From cascade park, up cascade trail to myrtle valley track. up there until a cute wooden bridge. this run gets steeper and steeper - for the last 5 minutes I clock watch to see when it's time to turn!

Running 1:10:00 [3]

Maria Island run -very nice - from camping to reservoir, back to main track towards Bishop & Clark track - up until she-oak forest, then turned when I got sick of the uphill, and completed rest of fossil cliffs loop. beautiful morning!

cycling 2:30:00 [3] 52.0 km (2:53 / km)

I can't be too sure about the time. Rode out to Mona from the Casino, but it wasn't open yet so I went to the end of the bike track, then back to Mona.

Then I rode back to work at salamanca, and stayed until 3.30pm. Which would have been fine but I didn't have lunch or money. I got my boss to buy me some soup but it was mushroom..

Then home, in gusting 80kph winds. it swirled from headwind to tailwind. Suspect I got the best of it overall though.

So tired though - couldn't stop thinking about food for the last 20 minutes!

Running 30:00 [3]

Squeezed in a short run early (before 7!) today as I thought I was going to work, but when I was about to leave got text saying that I didn't have to go. humph. At least it's done I guess.
