orienteering (Vic relays) 46:49 [4] 6.0 km (7:48 / km)
shoes: Black innovates

Brimbank park was the site for the Victorian club relays this year. I was 3rd leg runner after Nigel and Andrew. My run was marred by running off the map when I ran past the gully where control 15 was located. I think I lost 7 mins then. It was very windy (made running difficult) & the grass was waist high in places, so it wasn't easy running.

Early morning run. There were more people out jogging than I've seen for a long time. More groups of men than I usually see.

Tone up with weights tonight. Used 3kg for my right arm and 5kg for my left. Trying to be gentle on my right shoulder, which I
Has been a bit sore for several months.

Step into Life group (Cardio) 1:00:00 [3] 6.67 km (9:00 / km)
shoes: Mizuno greens

Street run with the group tonight. First session back after holidays. Thought I wouldn't get there. Neil rang me at work to ask me to help get the car out of a soft bog hole he'd accidentally got it stuck in. He was near Kooyoora (50 mins from Bendigo). I was in Castlemaine. I got away from work at around 4 pm, purchased a tow rope, D rings, flexible tread, and a jack before leaving Castlemaine, then drove to Maldon and on to Bridgewater. There I spied a hardware shop and bought a shovel to help dig the car out. Got into the car and sent Neil a text. I was on my way to save him and had spent an hour of work , $200 and about 80kms so far.... I didn't have far to go to reach him. Received a call from Neil at that point to inform me that someone had pulled the car out of the bog and I could go off to my exercise session as planned. My initial emotional response was annoyance that my efforts were actually useless, but I turned around and went off to Step into Life. I think Neil detected my annoyance and went to some effort to prepare a lovely Thai beef salad, bought me a favorite beer and some of my favorite chocolate....

Tuesday Oct 4 #

run 31:06 [3] 5.24 km (5:56 / km)
shoes: Blue asics

Today was our first day at home following the trip to Qld for the orienteering championships. I went for a jog late in the afternoon. It started raining a couple of kms into my run. This got worse,with a cold wind added to the rain. I didn't get as far as I'd planned; turned around when the wild got stronger. Jogging home was straight into the wind and rain....
