7 AM

running 50:14 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

From the hotel at Camperdown, around some nearby parks sussing out the local cafes for afterwards (we can now recommend Acre Eatery on the old bowling club, which has become a community garden) then over through Harold Park and Glebe to the Blackwattle Bay waterfront, where lots of people were out walking, dogwalking, jogging, dogjogging and the rowers were rowing. Knees weren't very happy today - maybe from the flight last night - so I didn't go over into Pyrmont this time even though I'd brought the O map.

Later in the drizzly day we caught up with Tracy & family at her parents' place near Manly and she took me snorkelling among the seaweed - I saw a fish this _________ big!

running (Belair) 53:48 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Weary plod to the redwoods, trailing Zara & Fern by miles, but it was a lovely cool evening with the damp smell of after-rain and I perked up a bit on the way back along the creek.

orienteering (Heathfield High) 35:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

4 short courses around the school, oval, and bushland tracks in between them. Evalin presumed that some of us might know the area too well and therefore put purple uncrossable lines in strategic places on the map. Certainly made me think - I only got caught out once (the uncrossable lines were different for different courses; after a while I started to expect to see barriers on the ground also) and was glad I went along even though I'd been practically crosseyed with tiredness after finally getting rid of the on call phone.

running (Brownhill Creek) 57:00 [2]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Just a plod along the creek, because I didn't have energy to drive across to Morialta and my knees didn't feel like going up or down hills. Stopped more than once to consume a random sample of early season, two, three, twenty-eight, twenty-nine, thirty :)

Blergh. Midnight phone call because a vet surgery was running out of an antidote to snail bait. Thankfully this was a drug which we keep in the emergency after hours cupboard (in case of human iron poisonings) and the nurse manager was able to access it, but took a while for me to ascertain that it was appropriate to on-sell for canine use.

So, would have liked to come home from work and go to bed but instead was double-booked, with a farewell dinner for a colleague plus OSA mapping meeting. Still better than being the vet nurse who had to drive across town in the rain at 1am to collect the drug last night - hope the poor dogs pulled through!

running (Bridgewater) 1:24:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

The Birthday Boy joined us for a run! So we were 8 (and 3 dogs): Zara, Leith, Angus, Evalin, Steve, Tyson, Troy & myself, and I convinced the others that we would go out past the waterhole on Cox Creek, down Silver Rd, under the freeway & along to Taminga Grove, under the freeway again, continue along the dirt road to Cox Creek again (where the dogs splashed through the pool) and then back from the north end of Mylor CP. Which was a lovely run on a cool drizzly morning, even if a bit hard underfoot and a bit further than I'd recalled, with at least as many hills as I'd remembered.

The rest of the day seemed to vanish on writing up the ARC water plan, working out what to do about a section of land near the HH which has changed hands and for which we now no longer have permission, and attending the SARA committee meeting.
