Running 1:10:00 [3]

plod-a-blob on the pipeline trail. Beautiful morning - quite a few people out there - I even bumped into Louise Fairfax!

alum cliffs. when I woke up it was dark and rainy but by 7.25 it was pretty nice for running. still not riding weather though.

Running 51:00 [3]

It's impossible to consider riding this week - it's really cold (not canberra cold, but still cold), and it's windy, and it's wet. The triple misery if you like. So I'm running when I can instead. I should have run this morning, but I faffed around too much so I had to sneak out of work early and run at 4.30, only just making it back to the car (at the waterworks) before it had reached ankle breaking darkness at 5.20 and making Jett late for his haircut at 5.30. whoops. It's a good reminder of how much easier it really is to run in the morning - although the window between it being light and needing to go to work is very very tight.

Running 47:00 [3]

Peter Murrell, it was too icy/frosty to ride so went for a run around my usual loop before work. lots of snow on the mountain and foothills still.

Orienteering 21:08 [3]

Tas Sprint Champs - Clare gets her name on the shield this year after a solid win yesterday - I was happy to get second, 2 secs ahead of third - I had a good run but suffered control blindness at a control that should have been hanging on the corner of a little building, but was actually hanging on the wall of the big building about 1 metre away. technically it was wrong - but i was the only person who didn't see it anyway - the flag was hanging without a stand - so it was actually completely flat to the (wrong wall). annoying but didn't cost me 2nd place in the end. phew.

Orienteering 33:00 [3]

tas relays - mucked up the very first easy control - doh! felt stupid but carried on fine. then I couldn't find the last control due to it being very poorly positioned on a stack of 4 tyres which apparenlty represented a brown knoll on the ground. I ran right past them (cos, you know, they were tyres, not a knoll), then stuffed around for another few minutes before I finally went back to the tyre-knoll. So I finished the race pretty annoyed that this dodgy control placement could have happened.

cycling 50:00 [3]

cruisy morning commute - a bit colder than yesterday - had cold ears for first 10 minutes!

cycling 50:00 [3]

uneventful ride home. happy to have done the double-double - was motivated to keep the pace up by the thought of thai takeaway with clare when I got home.

cycling 50:00 [3]

finally got a commute in after the horrible wet and windy weather of the last few days.

uneventful ride home. it's just a little lighter going over the bonnet which is nice.

Orienteering 34:54 [3]

Medium course at Peter Murrel reserve. my first ever dead heat with clare!

Running 10:00 [3]

did a 10 minute warm down just to check that Jett wasn't getting too confused in a dodgy bit of the map. He was fine.

Saturday Jul 16, 2016 #

Running 1:08:00 [3]

pipeline on a beautiful winter's day. I underestimated the temperature though - 3pm up at fern tree is still a bit chilly.

Friday Jul 15, 2016 #

Running 38:00 [3]

intended to run the pipeline, but summerleas road was closed. so drove to the waterworks, there were so many trees down that I had to run down towards town rather than up towards ferntree. ended up at least getting some sort of run which was good. could maybe have ridden this morning but am still wary of the wind!

Tuesday Jul 12, 2016 #

Running 52:41 [3]

waterworks loop. sluggish - but worthwhile.

Sunday Jul 10, 2016 #

Running 1:25:00 [3]

my regular ferntree, springs, downwards loop except I through a trip back up to silver falls in near the end. was very tired and slow but it was a great day to be up on the mountain so reallyfun.
