I felt something in my left hip for the last few weeks not pain but I am ever wary following the stress fracture in 2008 and a few flare ups since. Consequently I decided not to do intervals at the weekend and slow things up a bit by heading out in the mornings. We have not seen any rain for months in Brissey attested by the brown dust bowls that used to be our lawns (typical Queensland Winter). All that came to a change yesterday as I headed out into rain and again today and it is due to hang around for another few days. Great news for our gardens but a hell of a shock to our system!

To illustrate a Queensland Winter check the two photos of our street, first at the beginning of Winter (actually 13th April) and the second (bottom) toward the end on Winter (actually 28th July).
