running (Shepherds Hill) 49:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Slow plod along the valley-->trainline--->ridgeline on a nice cool evening, although my legs really didn't want to play and had to be encouraged with iterations of "just another few minutes" after each stretching stop. I'd been busy watching my feet but looked up when I heard the grunting noise (like a motorbike crossed with a bush pig crossed with a chainsaw). Reward was a sighting of two Phascolarctii - presumably parent and offspring - enthusiastically feasting upon the same eucalypt.

running (Belair) 58:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Pleasant conversational run with Fern although my legs didn't really appreciate going either up or down. We espied multiple fat-bottomed Phascolarctos cinereus wedged upon high.

running (Bellevue Heights) 32:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

Back feeling a lot better at this end of today, and it was a lovely evening, but I didn't have much time because of needing to present at a pharmacists' dinner meeting.

running (Shepherds Hill) 35:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 24

Short jog along the valley, up the hill, down the ridgeline in Sheps on a pleasantly cool drizzly evening, also on tired legs.

orienteering race (Tempe Lands) 43:15 [4]
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

After a successful weekend of in-law visiting, this event was literally next door to the airport, and it was pouring rain but I'd already pre-entered, and we had plenty of time to spare before our flight, so why not? Basically, parkland on either side of the Cooks River with a couple of long bridge transport legs, and at 1:5 000 the organisers had said that it could be possible to get all 30 controls within 45 min so I took them at their word. Managed a sneak decision-making preview while chatting to Vicki Wilmott before the start, and decided to go anti-clockwise around to the south side of the river then see how much of the north end of the map I could do. Turned out it was everything, with nearly 2 minutes to spare, although official clock time is 20 sec longer than on my watch so I'm glad I wasn't cutting it any finer. Looking over the map again now I can see where it might have been possible to be a minute or two more efficient, but oh well.

Afterwards the drowned rat was glad she'd read the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and travelled with a towel.
