Golden Kelley

Posted by speedygeoff on Monday, December 03, 2007 with 1 comment
Carrying over her Australian relay record form from Thursday, Kelley was the fastest female in the 25k event at the "Deep Space Mountain Marathon" at Honeysuckle Creek this weekend. [So I suppose a few short hills in tonight's training at Parliament House will not hurt?]

And Geoff Barker ran third in the 18k. Well done speedy geese!

Monday Monitor
My training progress
last week’s target: 84k
achieved: 72k
year total to date: 3,587k in 48 weeks
this week’s target: 70k
weight: 67kg ▲
song of the week: “Transatlanticism”, by Death Cab for Cutie, from the "Transatlanticism" album. "I need you so much closer".

I was going OK last week until my lower back seized up on Saturday. Really badly this time. The common connection with that and other recent back soreness is ... my Friday swim. So that's it, no more swimming.

Stromlo Cross Country

Here is a group of us running on the mown grass at Stromlo last month. The Spring Series race is there tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6pm, then from Saturday this week I will be training there with anyone who wants to come along. I will arrive at 9am. I hope to establish a regular Saturday morning training session there, right through summer at least.

    I think you should go for 70kg, then implement that training plan you mentioned at Parly House - running the same number of kilometres per week as your kilograms.

    Kelley must have had some speed left in her legs from Thursday night.
