Lighting the Fire

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, August 17, 2007 with 2 comments
Mid August in Canberra: the days are getting longer, but the weather is still cold enough to keep a fire going day and night. However at last night's training it was relatively mild, making it much more pleasant to be out there on the Dickson wind-plain. Training were Barbara, Charlie, Colin, Geoff B, me, Joel, Kathy, Katie, Ken, Maria, Matthew, Peter, Roger, Tony & Yelena. We ran (as a relay in teams of 4 with 2 batons each team) 400 fast with 200 jog. For 25 minutes. Mild enough that I even noticed some sweating!

Next Game
A followup to the last one, it's Bonte Room 2. As before, only slightly tricky, lighting the fire needs instructions! There are three rectangular buttons on the top right and a round one on the top left of the fire. With the top left button off press the left-most button on the top right, then the middle one. Then turn on the round button and press the button on the far right, it should stay on. Turn off the round button, press the middle button again then put the round one on again. Finally press the left-most rectangular button. (The "clue" in the game is "12321" but it's pretty obscure.) Otherwise the game is straightforward!

  1. so in your considered opinion i'd be right to start at 8:30am for the Vet's half and jog it in 2hrs (probably fractionally quicker than a jog then!) knowing that i'll be going hard for the Sydney half 4 weeks later?
