Learning to Walk

rather ironic that i spent 8 hours running in the mountains last weekend.
and on monday i was at the physio learning how to walk.
no i'm not injured again it's just all part of my core strength/biomech re-training stuff.
the physio had a big chuckle when i couldn't figure out which arm went with which leg and made some comment to the effect of how gumby long distance runners are.
guess he's allowed to say that!

have to say i think things are improving.
feel some tiredness in the tummy muscles after runs/walks now (so much be 'triggering') and ended up at the golf driving range the other night (at a work xmas party!) and noticed quite a strength difference.
made TOH feel the tum yesterday and she agrees i now have myself a 2-pack (not the american rap singer).
yeah she's probably being polite :)

big week with a rental place/IP we bought settling on monday so a bit of phoning to do and some chores early in the week.

monday: massage and physio
tuesday: very gentle stat bike 30mins
wednesday: 60min stat bike easy
thursday: nothing
friday: 14km flat 73.30
saturday: 1hr bushwalk with dogs seven hills (had to carry the little one most of the way so it counts as training!)
sunday: overland track training at coot-tha with full pack 1.5hrs

did some more gear shopping sunday: just a few nicknacks - liquid soap, spare platypus water container etc... but gee it adds up!! well maybe i got some clothes too and those gaitors were noice....

bogong-hotham in 4 weeks
hardrock applications close 6-7 weeks
overland track in 7 weeks

very proud of the team on the weekend.
tim, whippet and spud all completed the 'ultra slam': western states, glasshouse and gnw 100 milers and coast to kosci 250km.
amazing!
