Holidays...

the alarm was set for 5:55am Sunday so we could get up and watch the Matildas play Japan in a World Cup quarterfinal...

following that I took Hodge for another run on his weekend loop - we were 5mins quicker this time...

the next couple of hours were spent preparing and packing for our holiday down the coast and we were on the road with the boat in tow by 11:30am...

we stopped for one cache at Pooh Corner and arrived at our accommodation just after 2pm...we got a free upgrade so we had a spot to park the boat...

Monday we went fishing...we were going to head out into the Bay but the swell was quite big for the boat so we headed upriver a little, not far from the oyster farms...

squiggle ended up catching the biggest fish (trevally) which I ate for dinner while I caught a blue swimmer crab which we nearly got on the boat (he let go of the hook), a trevally and a tailor which were both just a bit too small...

this morning I headed out for a run...basically towards the Bay from Sunshine Beach, turning around at 20mins to head back...

the stats:
start temp/humidity: 8.7/100% (apparent temp same)
start time: 9:02am
total distance: 7.07
total time: 40:00
avg pace: 5:39
total calories: 525
avg HR: 66(?)

later in the morning we headed up to Ulladulla, caching along the way...we stopped at Funland for an hour or so before heading back...squiggle and I found 8 caches while Tammie found 7 (she'd found the first one at Big Bit...

parkrun #10...

another flat on the way home last night saw me walk from the lights at the intersection of Drakeford Drive & Boddington Cres ...

the stats:
start temp/humidity: 10.1/58% (apparent temp 8.9)
start time: 5:03pm
total distance: 16.51
total time: 46:36 (including 15:46 stopped time)
avg speed: 21.3kph
total calories: 602
avg HR: 125

I checked both tubes and they had their respective punctures in the same spot so it was back to check the tube (which had passed the feel test in the morning)...closer examination found a small piece of glass which required the use of tweezers to extract...hopefully that has fixed the problem...

parkrun (Tuggeranong #8) this morning was held in very foggy conditions...

the stats:
start temp/humidity: -1.2/99% (apparent temp same)
start time: 8:03am
total distance: 4.97
total time: 24:31 (official 24:31)
avg pace: 4:56
total calories: 350
avg HR: 82(?)

splits: 4:53, 4:58, 4:58, 5:01, 4:41

48th out of 143, age 64.79%...9th female out of 65...3rd VW45-49 out of 11...no unknowns ahead of me this week...

golf was the monthly medal (stroke)...I started off with a birdie and was 1 over the card after 9...unfortunately I double bogied three holes on the back 9 to prevent a really good score...I still finished with 84 which was 11 over (playing to my handicap) and I ended up winning by two shots...my GA handicap dropped from 9.9 to 9.5...
