9 AM

Orienteering 43:20 [3] 4.84 km (8:57 / km)

Some map and terrain training in Polmaise and Murray's Wood. Lovely underfoot conditions (if a little soggy) meant a nice circuit of Murrays Wood before a walk to the top of the crags and some downhill O back to the car. Body tired but enjoying being in the forest, some lovely features visited for the first time.

Big Brunch at Granddad's perked me up ;-)

Run 1:11:33 [3] 10.38 km (6:54 / km) +250m 6:09 / km

Run down the Darn whilst the family walked. Down to B of A then up other side into the Triple Hills (Knock, Fort & Gallow) back across pipe bridge and up the rhody path to new path at top then through woods to top of golf course and back along eastern edge. Lovely! Climb is a guess.

Run 51:51 [3] 6.5 km (7:59 / km) +339m 6:20 / km

Working, but too nice to not escape out. Birnam Hill loop. A bit surprised by the amount of snow (4-5 inches on north side) and so quite a shock to the system (temperature, gradient, underfoot conditions) but boy it was fun!

Road Bike 29:45 [4] 13.92 km (2:08 / km)

Duathlon Team Inman. Janine swimming strongly but held back by wrong-lane punters to do 7 minutes for 8 lengths. No wind! Meant hard work on the climb but flat out on the descent - ran out of gears! Only passed by two folk.

Run 20:01 [4] 4.6 km (4:21 / km)

5k road run to La Santa and back. Legs a jelly, tried hard but calfs screaming and heat taking its toll. Only passed by one person right at beginning as I'd lost sensation in my hands and couldn't tie my shoe laces. So glad when that was over!
2 PM

Kayak 10:00 [2]

Somebody entered me for the kayak race in the heat of the day whilst the rest of the family were siesta'ing. Thankfully, it wasn't too busy and my technique held out for a 2nd place. Certificate!!!!
4 PM

Kayak 40:00 [1]

More lagoon fun with Grandad and the kids.

Swimming 20:00 [4]

Aquathlon. Inman grudge match. Worked hard on swim knowing Janine is in her best shape for this. Struggling with keeping my fried egg down on the run bit sighted J9 and knew I'd reel her in. Got her by the disco then cruised home to take local victory.
4 PM

Run 8:00 [2] 1.0 km (8:00 / km)

Junior Aquathlon. M swam a really excellent 100m then it was over to H for the 1k run. She excelled too, overhauling a much bigger boy and sprint finishing like a pro. So proud. Ice cream celebrations!
5 PM


Sport massage. Not as good as the wife but a lovely birthday treat all the same.
