First 10000 of the year

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, April 14, 2006 with 3 comments
I ran my first 10km race today for 2006; something I should find easy to better later on. After all it is only five days since the marathon!

It was 44:15 or so. No new injuries. I am hoping to improve on that in the Terry Fox; improve again in the Canberra Times Fun Run, and again around November on the track (see "my 2006 calendar" in the right hand column).

Hopefully one of these 10ks will be well under the 40 minute "barrier".

Shuffling along in 44.15 got me the silver medal! (Yah boo and sux to all those who didn't enter!) The 800s are later today, sometime down the track I will post official results for the group!

A national medal! A minor miracle.


  1. If I had a medal to give away, Geoff, you'd get it for running part of the 50km with Horrie & me! Your good humour forced me to smile even though a smile was the last thing I was thinking of!

  2. It was great to meet you on the weekend Speedygeoff. You look just like the pic in your blog :-)

    Looking at your PBs now I know exactly why they call you Speedygeoff.

    Hope we can catch up again when you are in Bris. There'll be an unofficial pre race pasta get together with some other bloggers on the Saturday evening, you might like to join us.

  3. Thanks everyone for the wonderful feedback! Tesso/ other Brisbane bloggers/ if you're reading this I expect I already have Saturday booked up, but I will get in touch later to see if there are any post race activites!
