11 AM

riding (Brownhill Creek) 1:10:00 [3] 19.5 km (3:35 / km)

Alongside the gurgling creek on a sunny cold morning. Mentally very happy that it's the weekend although legs still surprisingly weary. The caravan park magpie & I gave each other dirty looks but he didn't move.

running 41:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Identified a time window in between rain and darkness and plodded wearily, stiff-kneedly, over to Mitcham & back. The creek's flowing nicely; I'd like to go for a longer run to look at some waterfalls tomorrow but don't think I'll have the energy.

running 47:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Up Hillrise (not quite as slowly as I had anticipated) to Mead St steps and down through the quarries. Really windy out!
A bit sad that the Repat plovers seem to have lost their babies yet again. Every year the same pair manages to hatch an egg or even two and spends the next few weeks being fiercely protective, but often to no avail as the chicks have no road sense :( Then again, will the plovers themselves even have a home this time next year?

shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Dunno why it's taking so long to recover from Sat. But actually I think tiredness is more mental than physical. A bit worried about how I'm going to get through Sept with being away 5 weekends in a row!

running 32:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Breaking in a new pair of shoes, and loosening up some old joints, around the suburbs just as it was starting to rain warmly after a couple of suspiciously springlike days.

Note

Hip flexors were absolutely horrible last night but not too bad today for a few hours of walking around taping night champs' control sites out at Narrinyeri. Permission from national parks has finally come through and we are even allowed to camp there (although no campfires or alcohol) which I'm very pleased about. Courses will reward the careful navigator, without being too physically challenging. So put Sept 16/17 in your diaries now :)

Seemed quite a warm afternoon*, so I'm glad I took water with me. Was pretty hungry by the time I got back to the car at 4pm; 3-day old pizza has never tasted so good!
*edit: 26 in Murray Bridge
