running 55:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Very wet meander around Bruce Ridge singlestreams, I mean watertracks, before a day of OA conferencing. Rather weary because of late arrival last night after a 2 1/2 hour flight delay, so the persistent rain was refreshing.

Later in the day I noticed some very soggy bedraggled quidditch players and discovered that the Australian Quidditch Championships are taking place at the AIS! I wonder if this is a sport with a higher profile than orienteering - there's even a quidditch World Cup. BTW, does anyone know what the Aussie quidditch team is called?

running 44:00 [3]
shoes: Asics 2000-4

Legs said no but brain said yes and made them run up the hill: behind the uni, singletracks around the snout of Bellevue Heights (I do so wish Sea To Summit was still on offer as an organised run) then back down before the storm front came in although it was bucketing down by the time I got to Seacliff for the hospice Christmas dinner - at which I was given a beautiful/huge bouquet of flowers as a farewell gift!

orienteering (Semaphore Park) 22:00 [3] 2.5 km (8:48 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

A rather warm evening for sprintervals among the housing trust units at Semaphore Park, so we didn't really sprint them, but it got a bit better when the seabreeze started to come in; would have been better still if there was a 4th interval! Manu's use of purple lines to block off some of the more obvious routes worked well.

running (Morialta) 30:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Nobody was feeling enthused, especially not the koalas slumped in the trees, so we went to the bottom of First Falls, then up past Giant's Cave. I had assumed we were going back from there so headed off downhill but didn't realise nobody else was coming that way. Oh well, it gave me time to watch the ducks enjoying themselves splashing in the creek.

running 35:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

From Sturt Rd, up the hill via uni Ring Rd and link to Bellevue Heights (20 min to the top), back down Shepherds Hill Rd (now I know where the footpath goes when Sheps & Sturt split via the confusing overpass). Is there an easy way to measure elevation gain in a run when you don't have a Garmin?

running (Bridgewater) 1:17:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Bowling Green lane loop on a cool cloudy morning. Was feeling ok and even doubled back occasionally for stragglers (any 'pace' I may have had was put to shame though when Lauren's mob gatecrashed the run); wouldn't have minded running for longer but had to get myself and parents to WA AGM brunch @Hahndorf.
5 PM

orienteering race 6:00 [3]
shoes: Asics 2000-4

Sprint relay, paired with Robin, around the park at Glenunga for the OSA presentation evening, with a micro maze to finish!
