Keep On Running

"The marathon's about being in contention over the last 10K. That's when it's about what you have in your core. You have run all the strength, all the superficial fitness out of yourself, and it really comes down to what's left inside you. To be able to draw deep and pull something out of yourself is one of the most tremendous things about the marathon." - Rob de Castella

speedyJacksonMoore in party mode yesterday

Speedygeese training over Christmas/New Year
Monday 25 No PH. The geese are in hiding. No they're not, a few of us will be flapping around from the Raiders Oval at Bruce at 8am.

Tuesday 26 Yes! The Vets will still be meeting at 9am

Wednesday 27 No BBQ Stakes. Canberra has closed down.

Thursday 28 No Vets track. Not until next week.

Friday 29 No Customs run either. No one is at work.

Saturday 30 I will be running at Aranda oval at 9am. A "familiarisation" session in preparation for the new year.

Sunday 31 Don't know. Something will be organised.

Monday 1 Yes! Back into the normal routine for the new year.

How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

13. Australian Cattle Dog: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...


1. Coolrunning has a World Masters Sydney 2009 thread.

2. Christmas festivities in the Moore household have continued for two days already with more to come. Yesterday I managed to fit in a Customs 5k run in about 20:45, fairly slow but everyone was slow. I have put on 2 kilos already. So it's time for a run, before the "widespread rain" arrives.

3. Merry Christmas!


  1. I hope all the speedygoeff family have a happy Christmas Day; looks like one member is already in 'party mode'...good for him!


    Hope you and the family have a fantastic festive season.

    All the best for a healthy, injury free, and fast (race times that is) 2007!

  3. New layout is impressive.


    Have a good christmas and keep up your training.

  4. There is nothing like a change...

    I am still tuning the layout. Actually.. trying out the new blogger layout options to see how they look.
