I Feel Fine

My training progress
last week’s target: 90k
achieved: 81k
year 2008 total to date: 3278k in 42 weeks (c.f. the first 42 weeks of 2007 was 3246k)
this week's target: 90k
weight: 65kg ►◄

I am feeling no ill effects from Sunday's run. No niggles, no sciatica, no sore feet, no blisters. Just a bit of predictable quad soreness which will soon pass.

Bulls Head Challenge 27.2k results
5 Geoff Moore 2:02.10
9 Roger Pilkington 2:16.40
=11 Maria O’Reilly & Charlie McCormack 2:21.01

The placings are a bit misleading; I know that two of the Brindabella Classic runners were well under 2 hours for the return run, and I don’t have relay team splits but I know that at least two of the team runners also broke two hours for the Bulls Head leg of the run. That makes me ninth instead of fifth.

Cathy Newman is still the fastest speedygoose on the course: her 1:59.27 from 2006 was not broken!

Brindabella Classic 54.4k: This year no speedygoose ran as an individual but Kelley Flood and Mick Horan ran it as a relay in 4:47.14. (What were your splits, Mick?)

Kelley took a dive into the water at Vanity’s Crossing. Just after this. Falling in the water would have taken the steam out of her sails.

What they were doing, were they trying to go around it? We just ran through it.

Sheepish and wet. You goose!

Track program this Thursday night:
6.00 spiral 7
6.30 1200/2000m walk
6.50 200m
7.00 800m
7.30 4x100m relay
7.45 3000m

Feet up after Sunday's run.



  1. Well done Spody, good run. We may need to actually do some training to out run CJ on that course next year.

  2. I'll take a guess at 2:44 for Kelley and 2:03:14 for Mick.

    Charlie has good legs.

  3. Too funny!!! In my race Saturday we came up on a huge puddle of water and everyone was stutterstepping. I just splashed through it - heck, this is a race. I love when others do that tho - it is like a free opportunity to pass people! haha!!

    Now if I wasn't racing, I might be a wuss.

    Great job on your race Geese!
