"Gazelle, zag!" "Evil Tim must at summit live!"

The stretches I do #2. Rotation with hip and knee pinned.
1. Start lying on the side – hold knees down or if more flexible hold top knee down on the floor.
2. Reach other arm back behind you and aim to touch the shoulder on the floor.
3. Take a deep breath and relax then return to the start position.
Repeat until back loosens and hold the final position while taking very deep breaths for a minimum of 15 seconds.

Monday night training.
A cooler night meant we ran "zigzag relays" in teams of two. Present were Alan, Amanda, Bronwyn, Bruce (visitor), Christine 1 & 2, Christopher, Emma, Ewen, Gary, Geoff B, Geoff M, Jodie, Joel, Kathy, Katie, Ken, Mick C, Mick H, Neil, Ruth & Tim. Tim was awesomely fast! ("Smitten or in awe, I view an iron ET: Tim's.") OK, this palindrome doesn't make much sense, but Tim has competed in iron men races...

Vets program this Thursday 17th
6.00 pm 1200/2000m walk
6.20 pm 100m Boag
6.35 pm 3000m Pennington
7.00 pm 1500m
7.30 pm 400m
8.00 pm 4x200m relay
8.10 pm Spiral 5

My Track Plan A: Warmup for the 3k then wimp out and run the 1500 instead. Note - I resolve not to over-race this year! One track race is enough for a Thursday. Good news though, Thursday at this stage is forecast to be cool.

And now I am off to do an hour of stretching. It all helps I hope!

  1. Bruce enjoyed the session, although he tweaked his hammy doing the male thing by chasing Kathy.

    I must remember to arrive half way through all relays.

    Evil Tim would be good on the track. (that's not a palindrome)
