Orienteering 56:45 [3] 6.46 km (8:47 / km) +188m 7:40 / km
shoes: VJ Bold

A nice, steady, controlled run. Happy with my result but wished that I had run a tiny bit harder and not made the few mistakes. The mistakes were easily preventable. I really like this map and I am pleased that I managed it much better than last time.

I found the first leg quite easy and relaxed immediately after, leaving me a bit lost getting 2. Found it after a bit of scatterbrain. After that I focused well. Was slow going to 6 but spot-on, OK to 7 but lost some time at the end when things didn't look as I expected, I should have continued another 10m and all would have been fine. Again on way to 11, I came across some unexpected rocks and let them rattle me. Ran around for a bit, went right, knew what I'd done, turned around, ran back and got the control OK. Should have kept going to first time... Was extremely cautious to 13 and 14 but it did not matter.

Run 39:43 [3] 5.61 km (7:05 / km) +77m 6:38 / km
shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 14

Had intended a short run, then decided on walking then changed plans at the last minute and ran. Good call, all OK! Took it nice & easy, in Lane Cove NP with Paula while Nicole went exploring.

Quite a few big trees down.

Disgusting tick #3 from (not-so) snooty Pymble. Will be avoiding the bush sections around there in the future.

These ones really hurt!

Yoga 1:00:00 [3]

A very stretchy class today which fitted perfectly for me.


Massage in the afternoon. Very effective and felt all over much better. Deteriorated a bit by Wednesday, will skip running again, but on the improve I think.

VERY sore back today. Probably aggravated by yesterday but did not notice it at the time. I think leg/knee and back issues all related. Need to be careful and constructive this week.

Run (10 Hills) 2:11:32 [3] 17.0 km (7:44 / km) +436m 6:51 / km
shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 14 -new pair

Bigfoot 10 hills run - could have renamed it 10 rivers run today. A hardy crew of Paula, Tracy, Andy S and me signed up - everyone else must have read an accurate long range weather forecast for torrential rain and flooding in the upper Lane Cove valley. This has to be the wettest run I've ever done. Saturated from head to foot. We nearly lost Paula down one of the rivers. Some spectacular scenery, though it was hard to look up and appreciate it with all the slipping and splashing! All the creeks were raging whitewater torrents and at least knee deep. We heard a tree fall (we think), at the time we were hoping it was not a dam further up the valley bursting. The tracks were either rivulets or lakes depending on the slope.

Very cold for the rest of the morning. Will not be moving far today. Slower than last time, but that is to be expected without Jock forging the pace and given the weather. On a positive note, we did run most of the "official route" and I did manage to run all but one of the hills. That one was a bit of a rock climb, which only Andy ran, just to prove you could.
