swimming 34:00 [3] 1.0 mi (34:00 / mi)

Before a full day of family stuff, with G & myself taking parents to Wallaringa's AGM/41st birthday party/pizza lunch - to which SLEH also came (they flew in from Darwin this morning) and then Eleanor spent the afternoon with me :)

orienteering (Springfield Twilight) 58:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Made hard work of 15 controls on a scatter course which went up behind Carrick Hill (thereby including parts of Brownhill Creek and Waite) because my knees didn't want to go either up nor down - and Zara & Leith kept zooming past me (they were chasing each other around the long). Was annoyed not to find the control on the singletrack switchbacks, because the description was track bend but in fact it was placed halfway between the bends. So I didn't see it, and in fact checked out half a dozen switchbacks...also had trouble on the 'boulder' in the scrub, and got quite lost looking for a tree in Waite Arboretum. But the mansions of Springfield on the way back to the finish were ah-may-zing.

running 54:00 [3]

WooT, conference is over! Great idea (not mine) in having, for the final session, comedian Adam Spencer interviewing musician Kirk Pengilly who then sang a couple of INXS songs while playing his guitar. I realise though that it's drug company* sponsorship which makes COSA able to afford things like this...

Anyway, met Zara for a lovely run up past the lake and above the lower waterfall, then we came back down QJD. Legs started to fall off a bit on the last couple of hills, but dance-floor calves from last night seemed ok :)

*I spent lunch breaks trying to avoid the Mundipharma** reps who were stalking me...

**for the Americans, Mundipharma = Purdue, makers of OxyContin.

running (Brownhill Creek) 44:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

3 talks down and only tomorrow's session to chair (have just found out that the first speaker has called in sick though) so I figured I'd have time to go to the conference dinner tonight - and energy enough to squeeze in a run beforehand. Lovely springlike evening for a pootle along the creek even if my knees did hurt from so much standing around in high heels all day. Heard a grunting noise in the tree above me, looked up and saw a koala communicating with his girlfriend a couple of trees away, with which anecdote I regaled the Singaporean guest speaker later on.

running (Morialta) 1:18:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Feeling a bit dead from multiple nights of COSA talk-writing/formatting until after midnight, but today's presentation - which was the one I was most nervous about; I even practised it twice for timing, which I never do even once - went well, and so I skipped the conference welcome drinks in favour of a Morialta run. Got there early (coming from the city) so headed up to Deep View by myself fairly sedately, admiring the everlasting paper daisies. From 3rd Falls (still trickling although fairly algal) I decided to go up to Norton Summit Rd, and when I got to the road I encountered the Arro-Gang coming the other way so turned around and went back to, then down from, 3rd Falls with them, hearing some more about Saturday's shenanigans :)

Monday Nov 11 #


All-day cancer pharmacists' workshop which I had co-organised went well apart from the majority of registrants thinking that it started at 9:30am (as originally mooted and unfortunately still listed somewhere on the website), despite the downloadable schedule clearly stating a 9am start. Very embarrassing that our first speaker, a medical oncologist, was forced to wait half an hour...

running 42:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Headed over to parents' to take them to watch sunset at the beach, so I decided to run there (and beat Geoff in the car, but he had given me half an hour's head start).
