    Manly to Shelley beach, Queen... 10 km

    Hot. There must be some upside to training in the heat. Preparation for hot race days maybe?

      Sure, it acclimates one if nothing else...also a good way to get a tan and stay fit:-) Love the profile pic btw, looks like you're doing a good impression of the Queen's wave.

      James - so true! The single track is very sparse, but I think I'm learning which way to go. Eventually! And it does add to the miles, you're right David!

      Kent - I haven't tried it yet. Hmm, Sang, I didn't think about the trouble they could get up to. They know where the candy is! David, nah she's 7 in February. "Laventines Day", as she calls it.

    Hills in the heat. Hot! Hiding in my room from flat mate now. Geez it was warm today. 40 C in Western Sydney. Phew!

  9. Uuughhhhh!!!! Hmm. Ejecting disrespectful people takes energy, but now I have told them both. Onwards and upwards. Running will have more energy now they are out.

      Asked the flat mate to leave. Now just need to wait 4 weeks till he is out. And his teenaged daughter, who he seemed to think it was OK to bring in. Yay for courage. And yay for telling the other guy that it wasn't working. RELIEF!!

      I think I learned that if one enters the 'weekend warrior' races, it's lovely. I've been running in the Sydney Striders series, with people who are at the very pointy end of fast! And coming, like, 5th in age group. Hmm. Interesting!
