Monday Monitor
My training progress
last week’s target: 110k
achieved: 117k
year 2008 total to date: 949k in 10 weeks
this week's target: 70k possibly, but play it by ear.
weight: 62.5kg ▼

Following on from yesterday’s comment: to succeed, the head must rule the heart; so next season I must choose between training for the marathon & training for the track & make just one of those the single focus. Meanwhile, today, again I am a bit sore, I will expect to come up feeling good and strong by Thursday night as I continue to prepare for this 5k.

One of those old photos: August 1974

My son Nathan and I. Something has changed since then; what, I wonder? I know, the back fence was visible then; it isn't visible now.


  1. Congrats on the gold medal Speedygeoff!

    Love the pic :)

  2. Great results from the geese and friends!

    I had a dragster just like that - and a jumper ;)

  3. Well done - huge congratulations on your gold medal - very well-deserved speedymaestro!

  4. Oh and cool piccie - love the way the bike is colour coded with Nathan's jumper or is it the other way round!
