GYM - HIIT (High intensity pain) 45:00 [3]

cajoled into this by friend who goes who couldn't get past the thought that the gym was directly under my building and I still never go.

much like an intervals session I dreaded it all morning, suffered during it, but feel pretty good about it now. I'm sure i'll feel the pain in a few days time. hopefully my back will be ok.

Running 53:16 [3]

pipeline track. wasn't intending to run, in fact I fixed my flata tyre and got my cycling gear all ready but then realised I had to pick up Jett after work. So yet another run - chose the pipeline for the gentle gradient and it was a beautiful morning to be up there. Again, the hokas were the bomb for tired feet.

Running 33:00 [3]

wanted to do a recovery run so started lower down the waterworks path than usual, just ran up to the end of the top dam and back.

New Hoka One Ones were perfect for my slightly dodgy foot. Will give it a break from running tomorrow though.

Orienteering 48:00 [3]

Executed the perfect storm on the way to the first control, stupidly crossed a track without pinpointing my location on the way, then headed vaguely into the dunes expecting it all to work out. It didn't and I lost 3 minutes. BUT, then I had a great run, ticking off attack points and spiking controls, sometimes by surprise. So very happy wiht the rest of it.

WaterPolo 1:00:00 [3]

On way home from orienteering we stopped at clarence so the kids could school me in water polo ahead of my first pick-up training/match next saturday. Am confident I will be completely exhausted.

cycling 1:30:00 [3]

Suspect this was actually even longer - did the usual loop in Peter Murrell but with Jett and his friend and his friend's dad. So was going really slooooooow... Everyone (but me) was fading by halfway so found a few good shortcuts which cut out a fair bit of climb but still left the fun bits in which was nice.

Running 44:00 [3]

Skyline Trail from churchill ave to Mt Nelson Signal Station Suffered on the way up as usual but was listening to a good podcast so at least had a distraction.

Was going to run, then decided to cycle, so was all set to head off but then I discovered completely flat back tyre. So I drove Zali and her trombone to school instead. Gym later.

cycling 50:00 [3]

another nice commute - ruined the good run at the end though as I cycled around to the back of the building (the power was off so couldn't use the lift in the front - and there's no front stairs). Anyway - while navigating my way around I clipped a wheely bin with my handlebars, and did a classic clipped in slow fall off the pavement onto the cobble stones of salamanca with the wheely bin following me down. hmmph. ripped tights and gloves. hmmph.

Running 55:00 [3]

waterworks. just kept plodding around.

cycling 50:00 [3]

cold yet beautiful commute in today. Got blown past by a road cyclist who then slowed down for some reason so I just coasted the rest of the way in behind him. Not sure why he passed me in the first place - it was a lot easier sticking to his back wheel than it is to Clare's and that's when she's on her commuter-girl bike.

cycling 50:00 [3]

nice commute home - got to kingston before I really needed my light - so that's a nice development and it makes the descent fun rather than fraught.

Running 1:15:00 [3]

pipeline track - think I ran out for 40, back for 35. pretty sluggish.

GYM - cardio 45:00 [3]

rejoined Zap gym - wish I'd done it earlier in winter! but never the less it was good to get some exercise in on an otherwise tricky day.

Swimming 30:00 [3] 1.6 km (18:45 / km)

Fitzroy Pool was nice to swim under the stars but I couldn't swim straight backstroke to save myself - I need a roof!

Orienteering 40:00 [3]

waterworks. lots of hills as usual but ok. stopped to help a kid, and stuffed on e control.

Friday Aug 5, 2016 #

Running 26:00 [3]

prepared for a morning run but slept in horribly. when I woke up I lay in bed for a few minutes working out unlikely yet possible ways I could go for a run later in the day. In the end decided just to go for a short run as it was a million times easier. so did that. waterworks. very sluggish.

cycling 50:00 [3]

The roads were wet but it was otherwise a pleasant and calm ride in.

cycling 50:00 [3]

eventful ride home as left turning vehicle nearly took me out in lower sandy bay - he sped up next to me to make the turn but I guess underestimated my speed and instead I had to come to a screeching halt as he cut me off. Am comforted by the fact he looked and sounded sorry after the incident - winding down his window to apologies profusely.

uneventful commute. nice to be on bike.

cycling 10:00 [3]

cleverly organised a lift home so as to avoid the rain and wind.

Running 37:00 [3]
