Running (SR - City Beach Scatter) 47:25 [3] 6.98 km (6:48 / km) +105m 6:19 / km
ahr:156 max:168 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

So first day where it was cool and I have had time since Sunday - went out to have a run on the city beach scatter course before it closes.

Cropped the map before printing as had some redundant space to it - made it nice and easy to read on the fly.

Was going to go S, E, N, W but when i got there I saw the wind was blowing in a way that made sense to go N, E, S, W direction. I dont know if my route was optimal there was a lot of options out there and dont know the area well enough to fully avoid hills but generally think I went pretty well.

Certainly way to hard out of the gate at the start dont know what I was thinking! There was a lot of walking today too. Other things to note - the houses where nice, everyone owns whipper snippers to mow their lawns and I got an overly excited greeting from a big black dog which the owner didnt have under control which left some scratches without a sorry from the owner.

All in all really enjoyed the area and the run even though it was slow with lots of walking... wish I had had breakfast first! Also a bit of calf tightness definitely slowed me up around the 4-5km mark.

Mountain Biking (Camel Farm) 1:11:39 [3] 14.17 km (11.9 kph) +243m
ahr:145 max:171 shoes: Giro Privateer

First time back to camel farm for just shy on 1 year (shy by 2 minutes on the start time).

No reason for the absence - a bit has changed now, the car park is gold coin donation and has bays marked. There is a green trail on the western side of entry road to get out to trails, there is a new green trail gridlocked (rode it both ways - wouldnt recommend downhill, loose and lack of berms made it less enjoyable).

Really enjoyed myself out there even though it was slow and I was feeling ill (bad tummy) but it was hot and dusty which detracted from it and I just wasnt in the mental zone to commit so just went along nice and easy.

Need to get out there more this year.
