Probably the worst are leeches, which are quite common on the NSW Central Coast where I now live. In fact, I don't recall ever encountering them while running before moving here ten years ago. You can get leeches on any long run in the nearby forests, but they are usually worst after rain and in the moist rainforest gullies. Runners have various home remedies for keeping them at bay, but I don't think any are fool-proof.

I walked about 6km today, taking care not to get my heart rate too high when walking up hills. I learned that my Electrical Cardioversion procedure will be this coming Monday.
