While it's not forever - an emotional day today farewelling Thomas who is jetting off to Stockholm on Wednesday for 3 months of European travel before starting Uni in Victoria. That's even worse!
8 AM

Park Run (Newy) 1:06:29 [1] 5.0 km (13:18 / km)
shoes: bright pink

Celebrating rockman's 50th parkrun and 37th since surgery 3 years ago yesterday. I'd let a few close parkrun friends know so celebrating with him were Bridget, Thomas, Joe (surprise), leepback and mapgirl, our junior junior plus Magic who came from his own training run to walk with rockman. Other club members and friends - Adrian, John, Ingrid and Paul, John C - also there and they stayed to clap him in. Coincidentally his radiation oncologist was also there and they caught up. At presentation at the start - a great round of applause, so many congratulations from passers by (ie they were returning)
Cool morning and it wold have been perfect temperature for running. About 20 minutes in rain started but not for very long and by the last 500m sun was out and starting to get humid.
Cool to watch the tide coming in through the mangroves and up the inlet.
parkrun is such a lovely family.

gym class (Body Sculpt) 55:00 [5]
shoes: bright pink

First run was terrible - just because it was. Series of sculpting exercises then another run which was better though not great. Repeat twice more.
First class i can ever remember where form went completely out the door with 15 mins to go. It appears the whole class was in a similar mood as we were sent for yet another run and to come back happier - as if that was going to happen? Very strange atmosphere in class today. My own mood with reason (rockman's anniversary). Very tough - she's building and building.

Upped weights on Back track. So now doubled since first started. Hope to maintain this level and build for others. Biceps track a cracker!

Street Series (Tighes Hill - #5) 43:05 [4] 5.1 km (8:27 / km)
shoes: grey/white

Even though it is Tighes Hill it's still pretty flat. Great course set by Clare, with lots of points to get. Moose and steveo cleared the course, macey missing the action.
I was actually quite surprised at how many points i got - well over my hoped for 50% of winners. Seems like a reasonable route and didn't drop anything nor add nor did I have time to include in near the end. Not late so all round good afternoon.
Was to run early so helped set up, hoping the 2 shelters we erected weren't to be needed - they weren't. Then got 2 new families so did the intro then went out. I have to admit the new First Timer cards are easy to digest - they don't give much useful info but it's what we are to do.
Then got out. AGAIN I ignored the select little section to the NW as I never can remember how to get there despite the obvious (according to burgo) track symbol leading from the highway. But had i gone there it would have limited the points on the other side of the creek. Happy with what I did and again was queen of the downhill.
Then to marking duties - noting some less that gracious people and some who are very understanding. But now we realise that people don't actually go to clues and only report what they can see from a distance so when they get it wrong eg can't count to 4 or don't look at the house number and give answer for house 5a instead of 5.
But had the first experience ever of almost getting an answer wrong by a visual anomaly - red on black or black on red. Very disturbing!
Nice afternoon anyway.

Time filler

gym class (Body Pump) 1:00:00 [4]

Meeting this morning so went to afternoon Pump class. Very impressive instructor. I pushed the biceps track with weight. Good to have a different instructor and different ideas and different music.

gym class (Cross Trainer) 1:00:00 [5]

Tough tough class. Beat time for cardio challenge 2nd time around but not 3rd. Did squats instead of squat jumps.
11 AM

gym replacement activity (digging) 15:00 [3]

Tilling the land is hard work for the arms. Soil variously sandy and clayey and hidden rocks pulled me up short. New plantings in - now to keep the grass at bay.
