Yesterday, Monday 9/2 training: we had Amanda, Bronwyn, Cathy, Ewen, me, Jodie, Joel, Katie, Kirsten, Maria, Mick C, Miranda, Neil, Rae, Ruth, Shane, Tim, Yelena and Yili running 9 x 200 with 100 jog, then visiting our hill of last week for attrition sprints. Last standing were the same two as last week, Tim and Bronwyn. With a small start Bronwyn was easily caught by Tim before halfway, and Tim went on to "just win". Shall we put a few bricks in a backpack next time?

Song of the week: Life in Technicolor II
It is a great song, but I have chosen it chiefly for the brilliant video clip.

Coldplay have just won three Grammy awards including song of the year for "Viva La Vida". In other breaking news, new albums are being released in Australia soon by U2 ("No Line on the Horizon", 27 Feb), Evermore ("Truth Of the World: Welcome To the Show", 20 March) and The Fray ("You Found Me" I think the album is called)

I have discovered that The Fray album is a self-titled album released on February 3, 2009. The deluxe version of the album and the regular version of the album have already reached the number one and number two album spots, respectively, on iTunes. I have just purchased an iPod and have iTunes set up after all this time. So - it's download time.

  1. I thought that photo looked familiar!

    I've got an old pair of cement encrusted steel-capped boots for Tim.
