Yes I am Back In Town - the torn calf is mended. I have experienced seven pain free days in a row. And it is feeling stronger every day.

Recent progress -
Wednesday 16th BBQ Stakes 6k 29.22 (4.54 per km)
Thursday 17th Spiral 6 lapper, ~2.5k? 11.42 (4.41 per km)
Friday 18th Customs 5k 22.55 (4.35 per km)
Now that's the kind of progress we want to see continue!

All the runs have been steady to protect the newly healed calf, and they are getting easier.

When looking up the barbecue stakes (Wednesday lunchtime running) results I discovered that Roger Pilkington ran his 659th run in the series this week. Roger! If you keep this up, you will end up looking like Doug Fry!

Photo shows Roger thinking - is there no finish line?


  1. That's good progress Geoff! But, 3 races in 3 days?!

    With the 6-lapper, if the track is 'standard' the distance of a 6 lap spiral is 2,511.836 metres so your pace was approx 4:39.5 per km.

    I wouldn't mind looking like Roger if I was racing that fast!

  2. Hey they don't count as races if they are that slow!
    Are you sure I ran 2,511.836 metres? I distinctly remember failing to move out at the right point on the third lap, thus saving 0.702 metres.
    You remind me of the Charlie Brown comment; or was it Snoopy; I'd sooner be a winner than enjoy it!
