Just over a week of low carb and have dropped serious pounds. Unsurprisingly, this, combined with yesterday's thrash fest and spending time with people's snotty kids has resulted in some mucus action and interrupted sleep.

Hard along pacific highway (I think tempo is the only way to stay safe on the road) then hard efforts up bobbin head climb out and back. Very dehydrated and bonking by the time I got to orienteering.

Grabbed a mueslibar and a banana off Brooner and tried to get some sort of result in, but really couldn't get the legs going. Was a fun, and quite different course to what I'm used to in sprints, less about route choice, and more just accuracy in point-and-shooting. Didn't race well for the first half, no speed and struggled in the bushier bits.

Was late for dinner to blasted it home along pacific highway. Bonking the whole way but just had to keep going. Ended up being a lot of hours at tempo effort today. Hope it translates into marathon tempo time. Absolutely shattered.

Friday night trails with full turnout. Thornleigh to Flat Rock Brewery. Nice. Andy pushed the pace during the second half and I struggled to hang on, felt like tempo for a while there. probably a big week and low-carb biting me in the ass... the beers helped with that.
