Saturday Oct 1 #

run 55:00 [3] 9.3 km (5:55 / km)

In warm conditions ran through Echo tunnel up to lower waterfall to see it after the rain. Passed many other groups with the same idea, great to see so many out and about. Took yet another video of it. ( about the third this year, each time thinking I've never seen it like this, it keeps getting more impressive! )
Then onto upper waterfall and back past dam and Saddle hill rd.

run 1:07:00 [3] 11.0 km (6:05 / km)

Run through park to Crafers west and return. Still rainy not too windy. Encountered a large old pine across the track and road on way up to Long Gully. It was so wet that Callum ran in his coat.

Thursday Sep 29 #

swim 20:00 [3] 1.0 km (20:00 / km)

Lunch time swim. Lane to myself - lovely. Quite happy to have the car today to drive home in the rather wild conditions. Rain and wind fairly constant from late afternoon ongoing.

Special hour long ABC news bulletin for the wild weather. Highlight of course was the segment on the Aust o champs! An unexpected and welcome surprise. I spotted 7 SA juniors!

Wednesday Sep 28 #

run 58:00 [3] 10.5 km (5:31 / km)

This run started in bright sunshine with occasional wind gusts, continued to cloud over and finished under an ominous dark blue grey sky, with growing wind and distant rolling thunder. This added interest and the growing unease about being caught in the storm spurred me on to all the speed I could muster on the last 4 or so km. ( Did a couple of 4 minute kms which I haven't done for a while. )
Route was up saddle hill rd, back down QJD diverting to side tracks past the tank to add a bit of distance. Took both dogs.
Found a young galah with an injured wing on a low pile of sticks so have now house it in a cage in our shed with heat pad to keep it sheltered while it's wing improves. Galah definitely didn't appreciate being rescued!
Sudden power outage accompanied by sudden heavy down pour and thunderstorm was quite dramatic. Even 4G was down. Quite nice not to have street lights and to be managing with candles, combustion heater and gas cook top. We were quite disappointed when the power came back on!

Tuesday Sep 27 #

cycle (Commute) 1:25:00 [3] 20.0 km (4:15 / km)

Rode direct way home.cant work out whether I'm faster or not on 29 er.

Monday Sep 26 #

cycle (Commute ) 1:35:00 [3] 23.0 km (4:08 / km)

Commute on the 29 er. Saw today the road through Tonsley campus to south rd is being shut on Friday, permanently. Bummer! Not keen on overpass so need to come up with a new route.

Sunday Sep 25 #

run 1:10:00 [3] 12.07 km (5:48 / km)

Callum and I ran from home to near the top of Sir Edwin Drive in Belair to view the start of the last wave of runners in Yurrebilla, which included Lauren. We then ran to the gate near Pony Ridge drive to see the group go past the 5 km mark. ( only 51 Km to go.) I enjoyed watching the runners go past, looking fresh and happy. Callum was pretty excited too. I really must do this run sometime. After that I ran over to QJD, past the dam and down saddle hill rd. In the parts of Belair that aren't weedy, the wild flowers are amazing this year. Best I've seen them. I would've love to check Lauren's progress further along but I had Leiths end of year soccer presentation, also an important event. So I hung about at Adelaide city club rooms feeling out of place in that particular parallel universe!!
