Orienteering 1:33:00 [3] 6.0 km (15:30 / km)

AWOC /Wagga interclub 1 event at Wallaces Gully, Chiltern, course 2. I was in pain all night, couldnt sleep, and limped to the start. Oddly, once in the bush l felt fine shuffling along (explain that!,) and had a head to head race with Helen Robinson. We passed each other around 4 times during the course, but didn't see each other otherwise. It rained the whole time, and l had the proverbial wet glasses, but managed to dry them a couple of times. A nice course and a nice day out, despite the rain, and l felt much better for it.

Walk 45:00 [3] 4.3 km (10:28 / km)

Back to Benalla last night and didnt feel up to running today so walked around the lake, which is drained and is now a river. Saw a large black platypus under the footbridge (l have never seen one there before, although other people have), stopped to pat an elderly lady's dog, and observed a sentinal cockatoo on guard in the hollow of an old tree. So much to see!

Friday Mar 19 #


Visit to the Chinese doctor who fixed my face. He diagnosed hip out, knee out, foot out and back out (no wonder l had sciatica).
He punctuated very sentence with 'this is going to hurt', which it did.
First the small needles for 20 mins, then the big needles (about 6 in back and hip, which he twisted painfully), then a rest under hot blankets, then a massive tweak of my foot, then my knee, then my hip (felt like it was going to dislocate), then a gentle massage of my lower back vertebrae.
No stretching of the piriformis muscle, no crossing legs, no sitting in low chairs or the floor, and no bananas for a week!
If he cant fix me in 3 sessions, its off to surgery (but l think this comment reflected a degree of confidence).
He's a western trained doctor as well, has practised in Taiwan for 20 years, where he saw 100 patients a day, and he said my complaint is nothing special. So heres hoping....
