running 43:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Around Glebe after spending the morning shopping & eating up/down Glebe Point Rd between the hostel and the markets (I think I walked about 10km today, and Geoff at least half that) and the afternoon at the maritime museum where I was particularly excited to go on board the replica of Cook's Endeavour, but the submarine made me really claustrophobic and I panicked and escaped (didn't go through the destroyer next, but back on the Endeavour; don't like anything to do with defence anyway). Run was a bit stop-start to read all the historical signs in the tiny parks - I particularly liked Orphan School Creek - but lovely in jacaranda-and-jasmine season. Realised afterwards that there is now an O map of this area, which I probably could have downloaded!

running (Belair) 51:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Struggled through a redwoods run - Zara kindly waited for me but I think Callum was the only one of the group who was fully enthused. Also think I've been asking a bit too much of my knees lately :(

running 31:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

If the only criterion for a run from the front (or back) door of FMC is that the duration be at least 30 minutes, there are infinite permutations throughout the university and pine forest. If a flat run were required, there might be rather more difficulty - the first 10 min was straight uphill to Siberia (top car park at the uni). Yay for the incline of the Eden-Burnside Fault, upon which it seems counter-intuitive that a major hospital was built basically over the epicentre of the 1954 earthquake.

Not sure how much work I actually achieved today, given that the wards I am currently responsible for are at opposite ends of the hospital and the distance between them is approximately the full length of Adelaide Airport - which Susanne & Lachlan paced out at approx. 720m (when our flight to Canberra for the 2006 WRC was delayed by about 4 hours).

running hills (Morialta) 1:16:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Was out the door at work bang on 5pm and got to Morialta precisely an hour later. So it was important to run for at least the same amount of time as I'd spent in the car - aided by Bridget's decision that we'd go up the northern ridgeline to Moores Rd, and then above 3rd Falls I went up to the road and came down from Pretty Corner. Legs tired on the ascent, and knees feeling it on the descent, but 'twas a nice evening for a run and I am gradually feeling a little less disoriented each day at FMC.

This eventually got rid of the headache which I'd had all day.

riding (Brownhill Creek) 1:15:00 [3] 19.5 km (3:51 / km)

This felt hard, partly because of what Juffy would call a stonking easterly (as evidenced by the fact that the CPM swoopsurfed me on the way out but not the way back) and also because Alex & I walked the stairs from Seacliff to Hallett Cove this morning, returning via the conservation park, Cove Rd and Marino lighthouse. At that time the sea was mirror-flat and ocean-blue.
