8 AM

Park Run (Lakeview) 40:47 [4] 5.0 km (8:09 / km)
shoes: black+blue

Freezing - instantly regretted forgetting any sort of fleecy when i saw the white caps on the lake. Only consolation was that the stiff breeze would be a tailwind on the way back along the lake. Inside the cocoon of the forest it was beautiful and sunny and calm.

I had no expectations this morning reacting only as far as post covid jab feelings might dictate.
S-1 9:15
1-2 7:45 (17:00)
2-T 3:42 (20:42)
T-3 4:19 (25:02)
3-4 8:35 (33:38)
4-5 7:09 (40:47)
A big blow out in K 3-4 but apart from that a few seconds ahead here and there. This probably indicates a continued improvement in fitness.

gym class (PF Sculpt) 45:00 [1]
shoes: Brooks Glycerin

Booked in late to keep my options open. Was going to take all light options anyway but as the warm up went on I wasn't coping at all well with "stepping" ie change of heights. Either perception was off or coordination was shot - so except for toe taps it was all on the floor. Sad thing was it was a great Strength/endurance day!
2 min, 30 sec rest.1.5 min, 30 sec rest, 1 min, 30 sec rest, 30 sec 1 min rest
!st round was Strength - legs
2nd round was cardio (yeah right!)
3rd round was strength - upper body
Abs and core
Brain very fussy as i still can't get my legs into my fav stretch position - just can't work it out.
Home to take it out by waterblasting a wall prior to undercoating tomorrow??

(rest day)

Taking a Rest Day for both preventative physical and mental health reasons. Orienteering has lost another wonderful personality and stalwart. Along with his partner Lyn, Nev was the backbone of SHOO club especially in the '90s and '00s, contributing massively to the Grapes Carnival in Goulburn and Southern Highlands and an always friendly face to newcomers. Vale Neville. Will miss your cheeky and piercing humour over our many glasses of sangria at Wanda while playing board games.

(rest day)

Headache really ramped up during the afternoon and struggled to stay awake. Lethal lethargy. Seemed to be going around 10pm.
11 AM

relaxation (Massage chair) 12:00 [2]

Hydrobeds still out of action and needed a destress of some sort so took to the chair. What a weird experience but was worth the wait.
12 PM

walking 30:00 [2]

Measured walk to pharmacy via letterbox to collect my pre ordered Happy Feet tape. Set now for the remainder of the year.

gym class (PF Challenge) 48:00 [3]
shoes: Brooks Glycerin

Tina stepping in for an absent Jackie. With Jackie flagging her absence and she having the hardest classes in the timetable I was surprised to see how many people were there today. Second surprise was Tina has learnt the Circuit word and so devised a circuit with each station having but 1 participant. this also took her by surprise as I don't think she's ever managed over 20. As each new person came into the room she hurriedly wrote another sheet out.
Good variety and lots of fun. Hope she enjoyed it as we certainly did. so many people came that including warm up and a little bit of explanation we didn't get all the way around the room.

Event (Bellbird) 1:29:03 [3] 4.6 km (19:22 / km)
shoes: new black O

Quote for the year: from (orienteering) Malcolm Roberts "It's not often that you bring controls in before the event".... but so it was today.
Mad scramble when we were unceremoniously booted off our map area after controls were placed yesterday. Land holder company had agreed to our usage of the area but the security firm guarding the place refused. So under escort, controls in the northern part of our event area were removed.
Hastily crafted substitute courses were devised by Steve Craig. Some even got bespoke courses. People understood and were just happy to be out in the bush.
I did a purposeful walk, planning on just getting a few controls as i was quite late in the Start window. But I was enjoying it so much and seemed to be making good decisions I kept going. all dire predictions of wet and cold didn't eventuate.
