Pool running 45:00 [3] 0.7 km (1:04:17 / km)

Thought it best to take to the pool today given that my hip was rather sore last night. Ended up a reasonably mundane session in the water but nothing hurt, which was the principal objective.

Hip was considerably better today than it was yesterday, so I'll plan to go out for a run on it tomorrow (albeit not as long a run as I'd originally planned for today).

Had my first experience of an attempted orienteering-related scam today - took a call from a Philippines phone number, from someone claiming to be a Colombian IOF delegate who was supposedly trying to come to Australia but was stuck in Manila airport without the cash to pay for a visa. This was backed up by an e-mail purporting to be from Leho Haldna asking for my assistance (I smelt a rodent at this point, if I hadn't already, because the e-mail signoff, from an address I hadn't previously seen him use, made a reference to "prayers" and I've never seen evidence of Leho being overtly religious). Eventually hung up on him and shortly afterwards got another e-mail from "Leho" asking if I could lend his friend US$950 (whereupon I advised the IOF office to send out an all-points warning that their President's name was being used by a scammer). I'll give the scammer points for doing his research - he knew all the right names to drop to sound credible (and that Leho was Estonian). Hopefully he was working through the IOF member federations list in alphabetical order and we stopped him before he managed to con anyone. (Perhaps I should have asked him what a control flag looks like).
