The other hand holding incident.

Robert and I

It appears the quality of hand holders has improved markedly since then.

Training Thursday: Not a large turn out; we formed four groups who each did surging practice over 3 laps, then 2 laps; then we merged into 2 groups and completed the session with 3 laps.

Those laps are wide on the track, so are a bit more than 400m. Surging practice consists of a whistle being blown about every 100m, when the last runner of the group of 3 or 4 surges to the front and leads the group.

Unlike most of our training sessions, there is always some attrition in this one. IT MUST BE QUITE HARD!

This blog has had lots of new visitors recently, so soon I will have to update my vistor list on the sidebar!

Lauren Boden, as well as representing Australia in the World Junior championships in Beijing this month, has just been selected in the Oceania Team for the World Cup in Athens in September – this is the meet where there is only one representative per region per event! I will keep you posted on both lots of results.

Movies I would like to see #5. 2 Fast 2 Furious 2. 2 men - 2 cars and 2 tracks. Fun for all of those with '2' fetishes.

Today I will see what I can do in the Customs 5k run. Tomorrow is a day off, for a well earned rest or recovery jog!


  1. Footnote - Customs 5k, 19:53. Yay! back under 20. Despite the killer cold wind off the lake/snow.

  2. Great pic Speedygeoff. Wow, look at the time on that clock.

    PS Well done on the Customs 5k!!

  3. I think you could have started something with that hand holding thing, Geoff. We need some real touch-feely stuff at our Vets track nights. I'll look into this for the membership committee.
