Hodge was a good boy on his morning walk Tuesday but he still won’t go very far from me when he’s off lead on the oval (50m at most and only because he gets distracted by something)…

had a good run at lunch in very nice conditions…crossed paths with a fellow Jet…I’ve crossed paths with a few Hawks before but that was a first for a Jet…

only 16 at training but it was a good session…no game this weekend so the coach has given us Thursday off…

Wednesday I got off to a late start so after walking Hodge I caught the bus to work instead of riding…

my ankle was also a bit out of sorts so I didn’t run either….slack!

to make up for yesterday I rode to work today after walking Hodge…

had a good session at the gym…I’m increasing the weights while still keeping the reps up…

12/12...

Saturday

we played Molonglo (formerly known as Murrumbidgee) at the Gungahlin Town Centre Oval

conditions were sunny but cool however the wind picked up as the game got underway and clearly favoured the Magnet Mart end of the ground…

Molonglo only had 16 players so we started with 16 as well which meant a big bench of 6 so plenty of rotations…they ended up being reduced to 15 just before half time due to injury…I think if they’d lost one more player they would have had to forfeit…

despite only having 16 they were much the better side in the first quarter as we failed to stick to our game plan and structure…we were also a bit soft on the ball which enabled them to score first…

the scores were level at quarter time at one point apiece…however we were the dominant side for the rest of the match although we were again woeful in front of goal, finishing with 10.18-78 to their 0.1-1…

we’ve got a bye next weekend then have four hard matches to finish the season – Riverina (currently 1st, away to Wagga), Tuggeranong (currently 3rd, away to Greenway), Belconnen (currently 4th, away to Kippax) and Eastlake (currently 2nd, home at Amaroo)…

afterwards Jodie and I went caching around Gungahlin, finding 12 of 12 before heading home…

Tammie, Jodie and I went out for dinner at The London in Tuggeranong before watching Dawn of the Planet of the Apes at Limelight Cinemas…

yesterday I was up early to walk Hodge then Tammie and I played golf (stableford)…conditions were not as windy as Saturday but our respective golf games were a bit up and down…Suze and I managed to win a ball while Tammie finished with a birder chip in on the last for the highlight of her round (worth 4 points)…

this morning it was another frosty start walking Hodge…he doesn’t care though…

I was late riding in to work…was very cold as my toes and fingers felt like ice blocks…probably my coldest ride in this winter so far…

the stats:
start temp/humidity: -1..3/97% (apparent temp same)
start time: 8:35am
total distance: 16.66
total time: 41:33 (including 1:12 stopped time)
avg speed: 24.1kph
total calories: 477
avg HR: 133

planning on a 45min run at lunch…
