Saturday Nov 14 #

6 AM

running 47:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Nice out early, and the jacarandas were beautiful, but I'm very tired after waking up at 5 most days this week stressing about how today's workshop will go - with 2 separate virtual platforms; one for presenters/chairs and one for "attendees" - and yet we all have to host our own presentations from our own computers...thank goodness for ASN Events' IT support!
6 PM

riding (Brownhill Creek) 1:09:00 [3] 19.5 km (3:32 / km)

Some more purple-appreciation, which was good for the soul after a rather trying CPG workshop which somehow ran an hour overtime due to screen-sharing glitches and people who don't time their presentations (I am so sick of always being the one who has to rush through my section because others have rambled on - a bit like the OA Conference, really) and was made more confusing by the fact that one of the platforms was scheduling on AEST (AKA Qld time 'cos they're not on daylight saving) and the other on AEDT and I myself in Adelaide am in between the two...anyway, we got there in the end. It was an experience I'm not keen to repeat but is also probably the way of COSA workshops in the immediate future.

Friday Nov 13 #


Had pre-entered and paid for O but didn't make it; always have trouble getting away from work on time on Fridays and was mentally exhausted after finally finishing my talk for tomorrow's online cancer pharmacists' workshop, plus I have a fairly low threshold for not going to park/street events anyway (apologies to Victorians who are desperate for O at this point in time).
So, junk food and watching reruns of Big Bang Theory it was - very therapeutic :)

7 PM

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

Redwoods return then lake loop with Fern & Zara/Roo in overlapping sections. Drizzling rain reminded me of NZ rogaines, but did not induce any degree of nostalgia therefor. Knees happier this week, possibly because of softer ground again, but I still think I need new shoes soon.

7 AM

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

After the pre-dawn thunderstorms (which the dog is now too deaf to notice!) had cleared out.

Tuesday Nov 10 #

running (Shepherds Hill) 32:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Jogged along the creek valley, legs feeling nearly normal today. Does a snake sighting really count if you only see its tail moving away from you? It was a Pseudonaja textilis (and yes, I did just look that up).

Monday Nov 9 #

7 PM

running (Bellevue Heights) 35:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Staggered up the hill on a warm evening, legs still very fatigued. Nice sunset ocean views though :)

Sunday Nov 8 #

8 PM

running 30:00 [2]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Suburban jog to get the fatigue out of my legs, following a long day out in the hills with parents including going to Sophie Thomson's open garden (the first sip of the elderflower cordial bought there - made from her own bushes - instantly transported me back to Denmark 2 years ago). Jacaranda season is only just starting up in Adelaide, a couple of weeks behind Sydney, so Christmas lights season can't be far behind.
