Started with a sore throat on Tuesday evening, by Friday evening a head cold. Had Friday no running. Thursday at track eliminated the 1500m as a precaution but no success in stopping the inevitable.
Today missed the morning session, will have to run this afternoon to stay on track for races in coming weeks (I did 37 mins, saw one brown snake at close range of 60cm). At this stage will run easy all weekend. Monday session as normal, will race 5km on Tuesday road and freshen up for Friday and ACT Masters 3000m championship.
Today a lazy effort. Watched Science of Sleep while I convert some old tv files recorded on pc in 2011 during 3 months in France, Italy, Switzerland. Looking for as much footage on Cadel Evans before I make a little micro-doc.
Triple Tri has been cancelled, total fire ban in ACT.
Steve and Jane at Stromlo: Steve: 2000m 6:59, 1500m 5:08, 1200m 4:08, 800m 2:36, 400m 68...10 seconds up on last week. Jane: 2000m 8:14, 1500m 6:10, 1200m 4:55, 800m 3:10, 400m 90. Jane still getting back into it but gets to elite level quicker than anyone I know, it won't be long from here.
