How to cope with daylight saving:
  1. wind all your clocks forward one hour
  2. ensure other members of your household do not do the same
  3. sleep in
Someone said that Sunday mornings are sleep-in mornings, but they couldn't have been a runner. I shall arrive at Stromlo Forest Park this Sunday morning at 8:30am Eastern Daylight Saving Time. So no sleeping in for me.

For women and girls running the monthly Jogalong this Sunday, not only do they have to remember to turn their clocks forward, they should know it is a new venue from now on : Telopea Park. Good luck!

Don't make the mistake some made when daylight saving was first introduced here, and hold a late night daylight saving party on Saturday only to discover that having an extra hour of daylight didn't involve turning clocks back an hour. This Sunday is only a 23 hour day.

Daylight saving is great because our evening training is so much more pleasant when it is not dark. And long morning runs are effectively an hour earlier, an hour cooler. Win-win.

Last night at Parliament House the whole group attempted 6 x east side loops on 5 minutes. Participating were Craig, Eliza, Garry, me, Jen, Joel, Verena, Warrick & Yelena. Next week we can train on some of the "darker" tracks, and stay out there longer if we wish.

Track season is only two weeks away and some of us are ready to race!

Canberra. Not just politics. Great by daylight, great early or late too

  1. That's why I'm so tired - it's 8:52 already.
