Orienteering 27:43 [3] 2.29 km (12:08 / km) +48m 10:58 / km
shoes: VJ Irock

I've had some bad runs lately and this was well up there. Had a cracking headache from a day at the zoo yesterday, followed by a restless night (sleeping on Cockatoo Island on a very calm still night I could hear every noise of the city - still trying to work out how I could hear the trains!), compounded by limited coffee beforehand. Poor pre-planning meant we didn't realise the Sunday ferry timetable was different to Saturday and did not leave the island until 9:20. Had to go via Eoin's office and Aoife's friend's (where we decided to leave her in the pool and come back later) so didn't arrive until about 10:30, so a late start in the heat. Got 1 OK then completely missed 2 trying to go cross country, not realising scale.. When I got to a path decided to skip 2 but get all the rest. Then (on another stupid cross country route) banged my head on a branch. That was it for me, was seeing too many stars! Came back walking via 5-7,13,14,2,15. Glad to get to run at the wildflower garden, looking forward to going back on a better day.

Various exercise 20:00 [3]

Wild Ropes course at Taronga. Good upper body workout - shoulders and neck locked solid for next 36 hours. Good fun though, not as difficult as the AcroRoc but more arm work.

Got up and dressed in running clothes at 5:30 to take Aoife swimming. Impossible to get her out of bed so I went back to bed too. No training today after all those good intentions.

Another early morning visit to Bruce Ridge, this time in the bike, champion swimming effort from Aoife this week! No way could I do what she’s done. Ever.

from Nat's to coffee.

MTB 55:00 [3] 13.07 km (14.3 kph) +171m
shoes: Sidi MTB

Bruce Ridge with Nat and Al, via house. Nice cut-through down to tracks looks great for future access. Good fun out there. I ended up in the gravel with a flat - not sure which cam first but probably the flat. Used CO2 canister successfully for the first time ever! A bit of a nervous nellie after that especially as front tyre was now pretty hard and slipped a lot. Getting a feel back by the end but still not great.
