Keep on stretching

Stretch 4 Hip Abductors: Place your foot into the loop of a rope. Wrap it around the outside of your ankle. Rotate the leg outward and the other leg inward slightly. Lock your knee. Extend your leg across the midline of your body, leading with your heel.

At yesterday’s BBQ Stakes I ran 25.55 and Helen 27.18. Helen was over a minute faster than last week. My time was my fastest since 16 May. My next race is the 5000m track on 8 October at the Australasian Masters Games in Adelaide. Originally hoping to break 19 minutes, I think I have regained enough form to break 21. It could have been a lot worse.

First day of new training program a rest day! That is the way to organise it! I have got myself a new training program starting Friday 19 October. The first day is a rest day, but I will be trying out a new gym on that day.

Meanwhile Ken will be looking after Speedygeese training while I am away. And Ewen the blog, although I will still be posting fairly regularly I hope. After my return on 18 October, I will be introducing brand new training sessions at Parliament house Mondays, with track racing starting up on Thursdays. And as daylight saving arrives, at last.

And if you missed Allrounder on the television news last night, there's a photo and an article in today's Canberra Times newspaper.

My most recent music purchases, for listening to on my new car CD player as I drive across the Hay plains in the next few days:


  1. unfortunately the CT says I'm still playing for NSW in the NL which is news to me (and NSW i'm sure)!

    before i forget i must get your thoughts on what would be an appropriate training program to do over the cricket season so i can improve my times for events between 2000m-5000m...i plan on competing at Vets when i can as well as continuing with Customs...

  2. I have the Times at work - will have a look tomorrow.

    Sub-26 is getting there. Helen must have been out for an easy run.

    I'm researching my Britney, Rihanna and Fergie articles already.

  3. Ah Ewen, I could have mentioned Lifehouse, and Death Cab for Cutie, by name, but didn't, who needs cheap hits?
