11 AM

riding (Brownhill Creek) 1:09:00 [3] 19.5 km (3:32 / km)

Heavy rain shower came through and completely soaked me (presumably because we washed the car and put the sprinkler on the lawn this morning) as I was passing the caravan park, but the sun was shining by the time I got back to the suburbs and when I walked up Mt Lofty and back in the afternoon with a friend, sunscreen was required. The little firetailed/redbrowed finches were happy after rain :)

running 54:30 [3]
shoes: Asics 2000-4

Decided to test a theory and make myself pre-emptively better-oxygenated prior to work. Cut it short towards the end because neuroma was becoming as bad as on last Sunday, but think otherwise I was moving better. Even the pavement seems softer when it's raining?

Getting really grumpy about the random shooting pains in my legs as I walk around the hospital. They're probably ITB-tightness-related rather than being completely random, but the (presumably) concrete floors don't help. Also the lack of fresh air is really getting to me and I seem to be drinking more coffee than I would like in an effort to stay awake (attempts to minimise caffeine intake seem to result in increased consumption of "sometimes foods").

In other news, it looks like Airberlin has completely ceased operations :(
Might have to eat my words from 2011 and fly Lufthansa within Europe...

orienteering (Flinders Uni) 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Fun sprintervals where we either had to memorise the route (sometimes a bit too easy for those of us who know the uni fairly well and could just run to the control feature) or draw ourselves a map to go around with, which I actually preferred because simplification made me pay better attention to the number of buildings which I had to pass. Legs felt heavy and I needed to walk quite a few of the many stairs, despite all the stair-walking practice I get during the day.

running 48:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Kayano 23

Home from the supermarket via enough uphills to get a glimpse of the sunset. Finished off better than I started out. Was feeling rather mopey today but Geoff amused (and horrified) me by referencing an US rapper who is apparently crowdfunding in order to send up a satellite to prove the earth is flat...not sure that $1 million, even if he reaches this, will buy him a good enough satellite to straighten out the earth's curvature!

Sciatic hip/hamstring's just as bad today as it was before the weekend. This leads me to conclude that work is not good for me :(

Sunday Jan 7 #

9 AM

running (Bridgewater) 1:12:00 [3]
shoes: Asics 2000-4

With Zara/Callum, Steve, Simon to Mylor via Wilson Rd and back via Aldgate Valley Rd, the gentle but sustained ascent of which I always really struggle with. Maybe legs were a bit hammered from AOTKM yesterday or perhaps I have too much Christmas ballast! Anyway, it was a nice cool cloudy morning so G & I then made the most of his last day of freedom (after 2 weeks off work) by going down to Deep Creek via Yankalilla bakery, Ingalalla Falls & Raywood nursery, which led to the coincidence of us starting the Deep Creek waterfall walk just as F&T, L&R and a couple of other families were finishing it, so we became beneficiaries of Liz's 40th birthday cake. Also we drove down to Boat Harbour beach (which doesn't really require 4WD) and since it was dinner time by then, dined at the Victory hotel @Sellicks Hill on the way back :)
