Road Bike (Near death experience) 1:30:00 [3] 35.3 km (23.5 kph)
(injured) shoes: Ascent Creations

Righto here is the story. Slept through my alarm so missed the event in brisbane. So went for a ride instead. 6km from home i hear this semi coming up behind me pretty quickly so i move over to the side of the road and keep going. As the semi passes me i hit some potholes but dont get thrown off direction or anything. Next thing the semis back carriage has swung across and collected me sending me flying out of my bike which i was clipped into. Bike goes under truck and i land on my right hip in the middle of the left lane. Realised whats happened as the pain hits me(i.e. lot of screaming) and here another semi coming up behind. Start waving my arm in the air to make sure he stops(he thought i was a piece of rubbish on the Lay there waiting for an ambulance for around 20mins waiting for an ambulance in the hot sun with ants eating me. Ended up with 3 fractures in my pelvis( 2 in my pubic ramus and one in my sacrum.) and one in my vertebrate (L5- on the little bone thats on the side) So now i have at least 6 weeks of rest before i can do anything.

Orienteering (Night O) 22:25 [3] *** 3.93 km (5:42 / km) +40m 5:26 / km
spiked:9/11c shoes: Ascent Creations

Night o at Broadwater Park. Was doing really well to start with, took some wider routes round the bush which would have lost me a bit of time though. Stuffed up 6 but probably only lost a minute. Then got confused on the tracks round 8(another 1-1.30min lost), then screwed up coming out of 10. Apparently could have run through the thick stuff straight out to the oval but instead ran down the track missed the one i was meant to turn onto and got confused and lost 2mins here stuffing about. Other than that it was a good run.
