my screenname is tongue-in-cheek. But "slowgeoff" is poor marketing.

speedygeoff running 5:23 last week

1. At training today it was the fifty-fifty session. Ken, Katie and Colin ran a set of 50 x 50m sprints with a 50m jog back, on 30 seconds. Don't you wish you'd been there?

2. After resting yesterday, I ran 10k easy today as I have a funny right hamstring.

3. There is no truth in the theory that I set hard training sessions only when out of action myself.


  1. What's the punchline to your hamstring joke?

    If I could sprint, I wish I'd been there.

    When you break 5, I'll call you speedy again :)

  2. "Doctor, Doctor, it hurts when I do that."
    "Well, then do not do that. That will be 100 bucks."

  3. Yes Speedy Coach, had you run those 50 intervals with us, I am sure we only would have done 25.....that was hard work today, I was just relieved to finish the session.

    Congratulations CJ on being the best 10km ACT champion in the world - congratulations to all the other runners who actually ran 10km on such a hot day :o)

  4. W20 - Aki

    You have to include me as a speedygoose!

  5. Or rather silly goose!!!

  6. You are anonymous today aki! Sorry - I only went through the Vets results & "forgot" we have a speedygosling in tow. You done well.
