How we trained last night
We ran 3x4x40seconds on 2 mins with an extra minute break between sets. Training were Alan, Al, Amanda, Bronwyn, Cathy, Emma, Ewen, Geoff B, me, Helen, Katie, Ken, Maria, Mick C, Mick H, Peter, Tim, and Trevor. Welcome back Trevor! There will be no Parliament House training next Monday, as it's the Easter holiday weekend and many are away.
Emma's recovery from the six foot track was very speedy!
While we were there, Parliament House had a visit from Damascus College Energy Breakthrough team - see Allrounder's blog for what it was all about and a link to their website.
My New Desktop Computer is very fast compared with the old one. And starts up and shuts down quickly. But it does seem to be downloading a lot of updates. What kind of computer is it, I hear you ask?

Now you know (probably more than I do). I am also running Office 2007, a vast improvement on what I had. All in all, lots to learn, once I find the time. By the way, is it possible to create a simple html file from Excel 2007? I believe not, but there must be a way around it, somehow?
What should we Canberrans train for in winter 2008?
