Two years ago Maureen set the W50 record at 2:35.2, so she should be able to improve on her W55 record again next time.
Can she break the 400 record? It’s 70.3 set by Fran in 1998. Maureen ran 65.3 in 2003, so who knows!
Can she break the 1500 record? It’s 5:59 held by Anne Young since 1991. Go on Maureen, give it a go!
Here's Maureen in the pink top looking very relaxed after racing around Parliament House on Monday this week chasing Karen and Katie … I wonder what we are saying that made her run so fast? Obviously the hard session in the heat did no harm.
Moore Moves Towards Target Time
My Thursday night's 3000 of 11:39 was 20 seconds closer to this year's target time - already. The splits were 3:50. 3:59. 3:50, conditions muggy. I felt fantastic at 50 metres, instead of having the usual sluggish start, so I decided to go for a time. And today I coasted the Customs 5k in 21.14, that's OK. Things ARE looking up.
Farlow Form Forces Higgins Betting Plunge
Colin had a great run in the 800, breaking 2:10 for the first time this season, and mixing it with the BIG boys. Others to do well included Helen, close to 3 minutes for the first time. Helen's previous bests were 3:09 at a High Noon meet and 3:10 at Vets, in 2004. And Kathy, looking fitter in the new year, improved. And Maria too.
I will list last night's Team Moore times as soon as they appear on the ACTVAC website.
