running 41:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

After AOTKM (horrible neck & shoulders; I just seem to be so tense all the time lately) I went into Shepherds Hill and ran up a couple of hills in the dark
a) to prove to myself that I could still do so, after yesterday's disappointment
b) because if I had stayed just along the creek I'd have got wet feet at the crossings

running (Bridgewater) 1:11:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

I recruited the gang for a Bridgie run this morning and was all keen to do the Bowling Green Lane loop, but then my legs just had absolutely nothing in them, and I had to stop 3 times on the first couple of hills, but felt a bit better eventually and after prolonged brunch and socialisation at the pub with the others, decided I did have enough energy to go out to Narrinyeri and spend a couple of hours retrieving the tapes from training last month & checking out culverts under the trainline as potential crossing points for night champs. Got this done just before it rained :)

A Grand Day Out
No O events in SA this weekend, and Neil's talk of mapping Bendigo's goldmining wastelands at 1:5 000 had piqued my curiosity, and I had enough frequent flyer points for a day trip to Melbourne, and enough time (just) for brunch with friends before getting a lift with Blair to orienteering.

This was a great little area (for some reason I was reminded of orienteering in Alice Springs, where the vegetation is likewise low and scrubby and the ground rocky underfoot with a bit of man-made detritus) and I enjoyed it a lot, on one of those clear but cold sunny winter's afternoons which make you glad to be outdoors and 600+ km away from work. Was feeling mentally very tired so didn't try to run hard, but still twice came unstuck in the flat swampy no-man's land to the NW, not properly realising that the features were mapped to ISSOM. Or maybe I was distracted by the amazing odour of baking fruit buns wafting through the western part of the map. Also I kept hearing the sound of horses cantering and whinnying nearby, and thought I would have a story to tell Zara about 'wild brumbies', so when I eventually saw them, was slightly disappointed that they had saddles and riders!
