Tuning up for Easter

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, March 27, 2007 with 5 comments
The best is yet to come! And Easter is the time members of our training group, the speedy geese, will be flying down to Hobart to do their very best in search of precious metal - gold, silver and bronze. I would very much like to be going but I have two clashes, not the least of which is the marathon the following week; were I to run the Nationals in Hobart I would have stayed and toured around with speedyjenny. Next year the nationals are in Sydney I believe, if so I will plan to be there.

speedygeese going to the Nationals:
Kevin Chamberlain, M60 400m, 800m, 1500m
Colin Farlow, M45 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 8kCC
Katie Forestier, W40 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 8kCC
Jeni Greenland, W30 10000m, 5000m, 8kCC
Shisei Oya, M55 800m, 1500m, 200m, 400m
Amanda Walker, W35 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 8kCC
Ken White, M50 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 8kCC, 400m
Some talent there. As in, Some! Talent! Go the Geese!

Report on Monday night training. Three not-too-fast laps around our 950m course, with a bit of a jog and a quick run-through after each. Three of the Hobart venturers were there, a couple of survivers from Saturday's 20 miler, and a few wanting a good 800m or 5000m this coming Thursday night.

Song of the week: "Open Your Eyes", Snow Patrol, from "Eyes Open". "My bones ache, my skin is so cold, I'm getting so tired and old" .... Every song on their fourth album grows on you, and I do like their third album "Final Straw" too.


  1. I wonder How Jen will go in the 50,000 - crikey, the mind boggles!!!

    I hope you are focussing ET - I am coming prepared - I am going to write our splits on my hand :o)

  2. Bring your torch so you can read them SG - it'll be very dark by the time we finish.

  3. Ewen, you are hot favourite to win the "last official runner on the track" prize at the presentations. Presented last, of course.

  4. Tell them they can turn off the floodlights early to save on greenhouse gasses. I can run with my headlamp and SG has her torch.
