Orienteering 1:30:51 [1] 3.6 km (25:14 / km)
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline ASR

Cass, Myself and the Boys head to our first bush-O event today. Original plan was to take the kids over the kids course then head of on an easy course by myself. Then when we realised the kids course was just a few hundred metres long we decided we would all walk the easy course. (2.8km)

We all had a good time and found all the controls easily with the exception of having to hunt around a little for 7. I think doing the first one so slowly was a good thing as the nav was nice and easy and a good introduction. Still kept thinking how much I would like to run a course so looking forward to getting the opportunity some time next weekend.

AJ made it to 8 before needing to get on my shoulders whereas LJ was on and off them from control 4. Both did well though!

I think I will end up enjoying this much more than metro and nav dash. Just like rogaining but with better maps, shorter legs, doesn't take all weekend and won't leave me tired for work on Monday!

Swim (Pool) (Lake) 20:00 [3]

After the orienteering we met up with my folks and rellies at Lake Leshanultia for picnic, frisbee and a walk around the lake.

Had a nice swim in a cold lake. Not sure on distance and time is only an estimate anyway. Swam about halfway across the lake between the two main beaches and back. Plus a few swims out to the pontoon, often with Anthony on my back before he showed me how brave he was by jumping off the pontoon onto me.

Great day which finshed with fish and chips at Hillarys. Kids worn out and fast asleep before I put their lights out!

Nice ride to NavDAsh with Dolf and Tooms who met up with us at Powis street and pushed a pretty good pace.

Orienteering 20:11 [3] 3.61 km (5:35 / km)
ahr:175 max:187 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline ASR

Ran cautiously to 1 given my passed few efforts of completely stuffing up the first control. Got to 2 and saw the control but then read the description which said top of stairs. Didn't realise there were stairs below the control so headed up the stairs to the right looking for the control. Eventually looked back down just as Tooms hit 2 below.... Bugger. After that tried to stick with Tooms while still keeping an eye on the map. Managed this till 12 then lost him running to 13. Got mixed up in the building between 13 and 14 and a cheerful voice from Tooms helped me out to 13. After that stuck within view of Fletch till 19 after he came past but was starting to pay for the extra running effort. Looked at HR after 25 and was at 98% of Max.

Was clean then till 27 which I ran a little past then had a melt down trying to find a square plantar box for 28......

Main positive today was managing to keep up with Tooms for a short while.

Bike 1:13:42 [3] 29.9 mi (2:28 / mi)

Ride back with Dolf.

Tooms conveniently took a car home, shame the poor old man gets so tired so early these days.

I think he had rug over his knees for the drive home too..;-)

Paddle (Intervals) 43:56 [4] 4.81 km (9:08 / km)
ahr:114 max:168 shoes: Aussie Spirit PRS

Intervals at Hillarys with Liz.

Started off with a shortish session given this was the first serious paddle session in some time. 6 intervals chasing Liz in an L shaped, 210m, course with Liz having about a 30m advantage. Nearly caught her on the 1st but never really threatened again after that.


Good to do a more structured paddle session and plan is to keep these up every Tuesday morning.

Left work at 6.45pm, in my mind it is still t-shirt weather but it was cold and wet riding home so I will reconsider from now on.

2 things happened to me for the first time ever today.

Firstly after 12 year of marriage I forgot our wedding anniversary for the first time.

Secondly I rode my bike home in the rain holding a bunch of red roses for the first time.

Lets see how the rest of the evening goes..;-)
