Orienteering 26:34 [3] 3.77 km (7:03 / km) +48m 6:38 / km
shoes: VJ Irock

Fortunately today was not called a sprint... Good fun running loops around and below the Aranda bushland. Was certainly not fit enough for this. A tiny bit of time lost on 5 (slightly right) then a little more on 9 and 12 not seeing detail too well on the map. Worst mistake of the day was about 40 seconds due to rushing near the end and running from 19 towards 21 (around hte green). Fortunately I did realise I had forgotten 20 but had to turn back for it. Very annoyed with myself for that one!

good to get this over with before the snow!

''Ultralong'' for the older lady. Hard work trying to keep up with the little girls... could not match them uphill from the start, caught back up in the rock detail on top of the hill even though I was scrappy, got a gap on them once I got some good flow through the controls. Hesitated on the second last and almost got caught back up, hadn't the ankles or bravado to match the down hill sprint to the last through rocky ground so settled for second place.

Fair enough day out, tired from yesterday. My ankles are useless in that terrain!

Ski 4:00:13 [3] 24.57 km (9:47 / km) +1789m 7:10 / km

Another skiing day!!! With Aoife, Nadine and Lily. A fantastic day out, Aoife much more comfortable than a couple of weeks ago, perfect weather this time too. Visited Perisher, Blue Cow and Guthega - a tough day out for Nadine and Lily - their first skiing for many years.

Ps went a fair bit further, switched GPS off for lunch and forgot to restart.

Orienteering 52:52 [3] 6.0 km (8:49 / km) +190m 7:36 / km
shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw

Mid week ever at Mt Ainslie. Struggled with momentum through fallen timber and up hills. Took a very dumb route choice over the hill, descent on other side was treacherous so very slow down as well as up! Need to look at map and plan better.

Cycling 29:32 [3] 9.24 km (18.8 kph) +12m
shoes: Sidi Road

To work. No incidents. Still trying to work out etiquette - how many times is it polite to repass someone who overtakes me at the traffic lights/zebra crossings. Gave up repassing some guy with a rattly child seat cause it was getting embarassing, but then got stuck going his speed.
5 PM

Cycling 27:26 [3] 9.1 km (19.9 kph) +51m
shoes: Sidi Road

Home again. Riding up the gravel track in Watson not speedy. Made a wrong turn around Turner again. Should try coming via the Dickson bike path when I do that. Still need to find a clean way from Barry Dr to office.

MTB 56:59 [3] 11.83 km (12.5 kph) +223m
shoes: Sidi MTB

Taking advantage of a (hopefully) quieter week. Another mountain bike ride with Nat - this time a Stromlo - exploring north of the car park. Got chatted for riding up Muck Rake the wrong way (by a pedestrian as far as we could tell) at 10 am Monday morning with 1 other car in the car park! It looked like a nice track so rode down it again later. Getting better feel for single tracks, good fun covering Wattle something, Muck Rake, Willo Link, Double Dissolution, Crim, After Party, Party Line, Dingo, White Gums, Ringtail(?), Muck Rake and Old Duffy Descent.
