Great Company, Great Friendship!

On Friday I rose a little early and spent about 20mins on the wind trainer. Gosh, it felt weird getting on my bike again after so long. I worked up a sweat pretty quickly! Later in the day I had a physio appointment and have my leg strapped a new way. It seems to help.

Saturday Run at 8.30am

Calories burned: 921
Average pace per km: 6:11

Comments: I drove over to Palmerston to Marg's home where I met up with kiwi Barbara and Marg for a medium distance run. We ran from her place past the Golf Club and round both the Gungahlin lakes. It was a great morning for a run - cold but sunny and although I found out that evening that the Cross Country runners met with very cold winds we seemed to be lucky where we ran as it seemed to be more sheltered. It was very enjoyable as we ran at a comfortable place and caught up on all the news at the same time!

In the evening a number of us went to Griffin's home for a curry night/pot luck dinner. It was a fantastic evening held in an absolutely beautiful home and of course the company was great.

Tomorrow is the first day of my new program and I'm more than a little nervous. I hope I can stick to it and make it work for me. I will faithfully report on my progress!


  1. Thankyou for the lovely comment strewth, and thankyou for helping make the evening special.

    I won't be able to make it to Parliament House tomorrow; I have got the electrician coming round to (hopefully) fix the in-slab heating.

    I won't forget your glass bowl, I can drop it off at your place on Tuesday evening if you like!
