Friday Jul 21 #

7 AM

Run 5 km SA - Health Rebuild 35:00 [3] 5.0 km (7:00 / km)
shoes: Brooks PureGrit 4

iPhone battery died before finished by first 4 km something like 25 minutes. Normal runners soaked and these trial shoes feel like lead when run on pavement.
9 AM

Walk Meetup SA - Health Rebuild 1:15:00 [1] 5.0 km (15:00 / km)
shoes: Brooks PureGrit 4

Distance a guess.
Sunny nice winters day.
I picked up a very cold blue tongue lizard out sunning himself .... had a pat and a look as a Chinese girl was fascinated but too scared to pick him up.... then let him back down. He was too cold to even hiss or open his mouth much.

3 PM

Walk - Bush 1:29:42 [2] 7.23 km (12:24 / km)
shoes: Brooks PureGrit 4

Hike to lower and upper falls at Belair National Park after the prompting of jennycas.
Despite all the rain there was still barely a trickle over the edge so you must have to go up there when it's pouring like at Waterfall Gully the other day.
Photos basically identical to 2 1/2 years ago.
Need to regain my mojo and run again tomorrow.

Will miss Cleland parkrun opening this Saturday.

Fly to back to Newcastle on Saturday leaving Adelaide about 9:30 am and arriving 1:50 pm. Feeling very weird and apprehensive about returning. Booked room at Wests Executive Inn for 2 nights (weird not having a home) and then drive to Sydney Monday and have a factory visit on Tuesday. After that I haven't decided whether I am flying back out of Sydney or coming back to Newcastle until the following Monday.

Note
(rest day)

No running or hiking today - decided to pass on 3rd hike up Mount Lofty with another group.
Had to continue to sort out remaining Netherlands issues to try and close off that saga.
Also looking at options for Sydney and Newcastle trip.

Tuesday Jul 18 #

9 AM

Run 5 km SA - Health Rebuild 45:00 [3] 5.0 km (9:00 / km)

Same deal. Accidentally paused iPhone on run so not sure of time but slower than yesterday.
2 PM

Walk Meetup SA - Health Rebuild 2:30:00 [3] 8.0 km (18:45 / km)

Walk Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty (again) with meetup group of 3 other people. Time and distance approximate.
Basically pouring rain throughout and never seen the waterfalls flowing so fast - water all brown and turbid with mixed up sediment. Would be very interesting to be up there in full on flood conditions (but with a guarantee could still get out of the car park afterwards please!).
Lots of large piles of hail on the sides of tracks thick enough to have looked like snow. At the cafe at the lookout someone had made a miniature 'snowman' and left it out for display on one of the tables.
In comparison to the other day couldn't really see much view from lookout and freezing wind meant we didn't hang around long.
Photos on Facebook. Also will upload some videos of the Falls so can see and hear the difference.
7 PM

Note

I now need to be in Sydney next Tuesday to explore a job opportunity.
Looking at range of options today but may fly into Newcastle Sunday before and fly out Sunday after to catch up with family and friends who may be available.

Monday Jul 17 #

1 PM

Run 5 km SA - Health Rebuild 35:00 [3] 5.0 km (7:00 / km)

First 4 km 23:23.
Still forcing this.
Rainy wintery day and got wet between 1-2 km and got a stitch. Weather meant to be getting worse later tonight.
