No time for work?

will be away 3 weekends in march.
thinking about the rest of the year we have potential trips planned for hawaii (work conference and holiday), NZ (hiking) and possibly china!?! (long story!).
needless to say i dont think i have time to work this year.
and hereby announce my retirement.
...well maybe not quite yet need the money to pay for the trips!

ran into dave waugh on my flat/river run on friday and we decided to do a 'cootha' together on sunday.
great to go running with such a legend.
its amazing what dave and rachel have done so far.
cycle touring mongolia and they also MB'ed the complete 'national trail' from melbourne to cooktown - over 6000kms with sidetrips.
100 miles is a short stroll for the waughs!!

did a mr g's torture test at the mountain - 19km.
couldnt get a car park in the first 2 lots: too many cyclists, runners and hikers training for kokoda.
pissed me off a bit but great to see so many outNabout:)
gave dave a bit of a rev-up before hiting kokoda hill on the way back and we started running up it.
i stopped 50m later and he kept going.
he ran all the way to the bloody top.
thats it! i can never go up this hill again!
he's an amazing runner!
managed a 2.09 for a 4min pb.
thanks dave!

progressing with the pilates and biomech stuff.
probably will be re-videoed in 3 weeks or so.

have booked flights and accomodation for 6 foot.
its TOH's birthday week so needless to say we wont be staying at the backpackers.
hoping to do a fastpack/expedition 2 weeks later so not sure if i am racing it or 'just running' it yet.
searching for something to take away the grief of missing alpine 100.....
and hardrock..... and..... :)

Dave RAN up Gman's hill? O.M.G.

I have no time for work either. It just keeps getting in the way.

Is that Coot-tha you are talking about? You gotta get there so early some days to get a park. Why don't the cyclist just cycle there and leave the spots for the serious athletes (ie runners).

Or better still they should just go to Park Rd and drink lattes and eat muffins.
