Yesterday was a bust, Janathon speaking, but a wonderful day nevertheless as I took my 15mth old grandson to the Territory Wildlife Park and enjoyed the spectacles of nature involving the “Bird of Prey” show, a stroll through the nocturnal house and tropic forest, meeting new dingo cubs, and taking in the wonders of the aquarium.
Therefore yesterday became my official rest day.
Today was again a late start, but only because I had to coach first and did not manage to get out the door before the 6am swim coaching session began. The result was interval work mid morning, which proved an insane decision given the heat. Intervals included 3 x 1 min with 3 mins easy; 3 x 2 mins with 2 mins easy, and 3 x 4 mins with 1 min easy. Never again at that time of the day.
However I have an interest in “found” and “street art” and as the track runs past a local community garden I discovered a new installation, a mini-scarecrow sculpture which made it worthwhile after all.
