Espresso Coffee Cake

Posted by speedygeoff on Sunday, October 02, 2005 with 6 comments
Today was my mother's 80th birthday so we partied with espresso coffee cake. Don't think I can run another step for a week!

This morning before all the eating I went for a long run (hobble actually - both achilles seem to be sore and a calf twinge or two did not feel real good) and I finally linked up two different routes I have run before to form one super-route - a very pleasant 65 minute run around the paths East of Elizabeth - my previous attempts at joining up the two courses, acouple of weeks ago, had resulted in me getting quite lost.

I also suffered two magpie swoopings - but I can't complain too much as that's the first time this spring they have bothered me. And I cannot have too much of this warm sunny weather.

How was the jogalong today guys, another short course hey? Helps the front markers I guess.


  1. Happy birthday to your mum, I hope she had a wonderful day!

  2. I think the vets can learn from the jogalong - how about an 11 and a 1/2 lap 5000m?

    Happy birthday Geoff's Mum. My dad is 80 next month! Take it easy with the achilles Geoff.

  3. Espresso Coffee Cake - Woo Hoo, Happy Birthday Geoff's Mum, hope you had a lovely day.

    Did the Magpies draw any blood Geoff?

    Yeah the new Jogalong is great (not), Flashduck (actually I think we should call her 'Gadget Girl', measured the course with all her gismo's and gadgets and as expected the 6km course is only 5.5km. Makes for all soughts of world records. Quite uninspiring!!!

    You are funny Ewen!!

    Look after those lower legs Geoff, you need them to win a Gold Medal at the Masters.

  4. Happy Birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday Geoff's mum,
    Happy Birthday to you !

    Espresso coffee cake, yum ohh !

    Take it easy Geoff, don't forget 19.50 for the 5Km !

    Hey Katie, top run from you in the Jogalong, fastest time, great stuff champ !

  6. Team Moore are the athletic club champions! yay! (Shhh though, we don't want others getting the idea then whipping us!)

    I have always thought M60 1500s should be three laps, 5000s 7 1/2 laps, and of course marathons just 25k. They lower hurdles for oldies, don't they?

    And a comment on comments - no sign of comment spam on this weblog yet, but when I eventually get some, I will have to do the flowery lettery thing you see on other blogs when you want to comment. Have fun!
