running (Belair) 1:02:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Got up at 5am, pulled together everything for a day trip to the Deceptive Lands, checked for overnight rainfall up that way but Yongala gauge doesn't report until 9am, picked up Mark and got as far as Roseworthy where we received a call from Zara to say that Steve had heard from the landowner that roads were flooded up that way (and later on, that Wonna Creek was flowing over 2m deep at the HH site). So, we got in touch with Craig's carload and all 3 cars turned around and went back to Gawler and 7 of us sat in a café for 4 hours, discussing event logistics and timelines with the admin team and then deciding on points values for all 80 controls - the hopefully-final setting trip being rescheduled for next weekend.

In the afternoon I went for a scenic/social run in the national park with Fern from hers up through Echo Tunnel and back down QJD, but knees which had been really bad last night were still unhappy despite the damp ground, and I think I'll give them a rest tomorrow.

swimming 35:00 [3] 1.0 km (35:00 / km)

Don't think I got any wetter in the pool than I did when collecting controls after the Flinders Uni event! It was super-humid and oppressive when I was putting them out (on a tight timeline because of how long it took to get out of the carpark at work, but I managed it just in time before first official start at 6:30) and thankfully registration & computing were able to be set up under a verandah - because there was heavy rain and plenty of lightning/thunder while competitors were out on course (more than one person complained they couldn't see the map because of how dark it was at 7pm). Not-unreasonably, the few Arrows & associates who'd been able to help out with the event by virtue of not being at STB, needed to get home & dry off, so I ended up bringing in all the controls myself, figuring that I knew where they were anyway and I couldn't get any wetter...turned out I could, but at least the drowned rat didn't get struck by lightning.

orienteering 15:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Group micro-sprints around Goodwood Orphanage and Heywood Park, not that I can actually sprint these days. Also rode to/from, which made me feel better even though it probably didn't actually do anything for the environment.

orienteering (Flinders Uni) 16:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Test running the short course before a quick shower at, and not being late for, work.
5 PM

orienteering (Flinders Uni) 24:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Test running the long course, oncluding ankle tweakage on a pine cone so then I decided that the pine forest doesn't need to be part of the course (a pity, because it gave me some good route choice options). It was hot and my knees hurt and even though I cut this short, I was late for meeting parents for dinner and to view the sculptures, at Brighton.

7 AM

running 48:30 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Sweaty bridge to bridge river loop in Penrith, this time from the motel in Emu Plains (which has rather uncomfortable beds and in fact yesterday I woke up so stiff & sore that I didn't run in the morning and then in the afternoon it was 39 degrees so I didn't run then either). G & I actually managed to kidnap his parents from the nursing home & take them out for lunch and then we still had time on the way to the airport to explore Balmain a bit and discovered Ballast Point Park - I guess it's too small for a sprint map?

Flew home with enough time to go & check control sites at Flinders Uni for Friday night, which doesn't look like being as hot as originally forecast, so that's good.
