Park Run (Newy) 52:51 [1] 5.0 km (10:34 / km)
(injured) shoes: black+blue

Quite cool but still morning. Only permitted to walk - and then not at pace until Monday (don't get hot and sweaty and mess up surgeon's handywork or sweat the dressings) so went prepared for a stroll. Wore 3/4s, sunnies and told myself to stroll. It didn't take long to get into rogaine pace which was nice. Happy until 4km mark when toe of left shoe started to flop then rest of sole within 50m. I was extremely unhappy - only been using these for less that 50km. rockman was on photographer duties and noted my unhappy expression. Got back to car and mumphed.
Congratulations to the 90 year old who ran and to Penny on her 250th parkrun volunteering. Special people both!

Additional whinge: because of vanity I wore ankle socks which promptly disappeared into my shoes. This has caused loss of skin from both heels which added to my chaffing on right arm/inner bicep and right inner leg just topped off the whole thing.
Rest of the day: voting and Chemical Clean Up (6 monthly) - at least something positive will be achieved. Trust me to just do junk kms.

Mumphy - not really injured - more like attacked. Face swathed in bandages until tomorrow - attack of killer skin specialist and the hole punch as rockman calls it. No exertion today, no sweating for 3 days. Looks like I even have to dawdle walk parkrun on Saturday.

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

Toughest class this year according to instructor. That will make this afternoon's UFO interesting. Was still going reasonably hard at the end, but sluggish at the beginning. My obliques may tell a story tomorrow.
5 PM

Park Series (Croudace Bay #3) 52:27 [4] *** 5.28 km (9:56 / km)
spiked:16/17c shoes: grey/white

Great area, great map - thanks ID. One long leg - over 1.5km to get the distance (and for some the time). Again it was fantastic to see so many kids out doing sport in a lovely setting - touch, soccer, netball, tennis and us. Possibly 200 people in a series of "ovals".

Club training (Braye Park) 47:15 [3] *** 3.81 km (12:24 / km)
spiked:14/17c shoes: adidas

Last of Sunday morning Club training. Lots of rain in past 24 hr and I'm starting to have difficulty in finding shoes to wear - so out came some oldies. From BOM wasn't expecting rain but what I wasn't expecting were the extra 5000 that turned up - in their tiny weeny black uniforms and whistles blaring.
Steve had set up a course to bring together all the skills from previous weeks. I didn't warm up hence the first few controls were a bit sluggish so I ended up on the tail of a crocodile which wasn't very useful. So I picked a slightly unusual route choice from 3-4 and that separated me from them - which was the idea. Unfortunately picked them up again around 12 but couldn't do anything about it. Fun course and good training and well worth the sacrifice of not sleeping in on Sunday. Bush season for real starts next Sunday.
