A photo of Kiwi Barbara runnning in freezing condtions in a team marathon relay last Sunday.....It snowed while she was running!

Last night, training in perfect conditions were Brett M, Bronwyn, Garry M, me, Jennifer, Kirsten, Noelene, Rod & Roger. I had decided on 2 lap efforts over 660m. but as that does not compute, we ran 1 1/2 lap efforts over 660m with 220m slow recovery. If you weren't there you missed an excellent session so we will continue sessions like it. For training run handicapping purposes, the start groups should start settling down as people become more consistent.

Late news from West Stromlo: in the 7.5k, Roger has been promoted from bronze to silver.


  1. Na, Canberra winters are beautiful - 12C today is almost too hot.

    Now Barbara's silly. I have run in Canberra during falling snow - but never on snow!

  2. Wow, and we are just trying to get used to the heat out here. I'll tap into that picture on my next run when I get too hot. :)
