2am and its still 32 degrees

Sleeping upstairs wasn't an option last night..I tried, but was drenched in sweat and so retreated downstairs to the lounge room floor but here I am-awake at 2 am. I'd sleep outside if it wasn't for the fact the mozzies love me so..

The poor cats are a worry..we've got loads of water out for them I just hope they are ok...especially Pippi with her generous fur coat.

Thursday's training was an hour's session at the track arriving at 6am and doing 4 lappers at fast/steady or easy pace. I got through it easily enough and the track wasn't stifling hot..but I'm not sure I'll be doing anything today.

Actually I was scheduled for a 1/2 day off today, but am re-considering my options..better to be in AC comfort at work methinks. Last night I delayed going home for an hour and would have stayed even longer but was sent home as there was a power crisis and all non essential non direct patient care related work had to stop.

During the day the final 2 TRAC launches took place. We now have 75 teams and we ran out of show bags! Luckily we've got enough goodies to fill more bags..but I've had to ask for a recall of bags from close colleagues in order to get the gaer a out to the late comers.

So we've hit the magic number of 300 participants..I just hope they dont go crazy exercising in this heat wave.
