running (Shepherds Hill) 1:09:00 [3]
shoes: Asics GT-2000

Three Hills Loop, on sunset. Took a while to get going (am rather sad that tomorrow's physio has been cancelled, because my calves/shins are in desperate need of needles) but plodded up the hills ok although I definitely couldn't have run away from any vampires today.

There's just too much going on at the minute, and I'm feeling more than a little overwhelmed by the life-life balance; family stuff took up a significant part of the day. George and I did, however, have a relaxing journey through IKEA which is to say that halfway through I started going "there's no fresh air, let's get the hell out of here" while he was still happily looking at random pieces of furniture and accessories and trying to work out what they are used for. Sometimes I think it's weird that I married a man who likes shopping more than I do...he didn't even balk at the fact that the sideboard we had picked out comes in no less than 3 different flat packs, because after all, he can happily spend hours putting one of his beloved scale model cranes together. However, we called it quits at 9pm when he discovered that a piece (required in diagrams 10 & 11 and also to maintain the structural integrity of the sideboard) was missing from one of his flatpacks and I managed to snap a dowel which was essential to putting the spare bed together.

83 control stands went out at Wonna Creek today, so that was a success, and George was able to 4WD 50 litres of water to within 200m of where it needed to be placed on the western edge of the map. The only disappointment of the day was when we were about to tape off half-a-dozen mineshafts: Simon chucked the brand-new roll of pink tape towards my feet but it bounced off a rock and ricocheted into the mineshaft. We all watched helplessly as it rolled over the edge; good thing I didn't try to grab it or I might now be 10 metres down also! So, that's another task for Thursday.

Put on running gear and got to the end of the street before deciding that ankle/heel really wasn't happy with having run flat-footed in the dark last night and that I needed it to be ok for putting out controls tomorrow.

swimming 36:00 [3] 1.0 km (36:00 / km)

Before going to Snap to participate in the printing of 800+ maps. At least we don't have to bag all of them, unlike in 2010.
7 PM

running (Belair) 1:01:14 [3]
shoes: Asics GT-2000

Last daylight Belair run of the season, probably. Up QJD all the way to the top, which was a bit of a slog, then down Saddle Hill Rd which my knee was a bit unhappy about, then back along Long Gully; I avoided the creek track because it would have been too gloomy but I think the others must have gone that way, because unexpectedly they finished after me.

Attack of the Killer Masseuse
Calves still really tight. A common consequence of hard ground due to the long dry summer/autumn.

Spent more time tonight on overhauling the OA rules (I hate formatting) than many other people did on running 45km a couple of weeks ago. Finished at 1:30am which would probably have been just inside the 7hr cutoff.
