At Parliament house last night in very still and foreboding (or is that "forbidding"?) conditions, well, a harbinger of something wet is what I mean, we ran from the ½ way mark road each time a double pyramid of 200m-400-600-400-200-400-600-400-200 on go-2 minutes-6-12-16-18-22-28-32-finish on 34. I spell it out so I can remember what we did and repeat it some day. It was a good hard session; there were sixteen at training; Alan, Andrew, Bronwyn, Christopher, Craig, Gary, me, Helen, Joel, Kathy, Katie, Ken, Miranda, Neil, Suzie & Yelena; just six five of them got back to the start before the whistle for the entire session; those who didn't were allowed to turn around when they heard the whistle. There was some consensus that this was a harder session that the 5x600m we ran on an earlier Monday.

City to Surf results I am told will be in the Sun Herald today and avaiable on-line tomorrow. I will look up the speedygeese names tomorrow on-line and publish their times. Meanwhile I don't have any C2S pictures, so here's one of a lesser crowd, the local version, the CTFR.


  1. technically there were only 5 of us that did the whole session because Joel wasn't there at the start of the hard part of the session...

    and we did 2-4-6-4-2-4-6-4-2! you missed listing the last two efforts!!

  2. My excuse is my computer has resumed crashing all around me today and I have to type real quick and hit "enter" straight away without looking!
    Yes I counted Joel and hit enter before I remembered he didn't start on time.
    Fixed now!

  3. and I thought the 5x600m session was harder (not that this one wasn't hard!)...

  4. Fast typing is good for your reflexes!

  5. Sounds like a fun session - pity we were held up in Sydney traffic for nearly 2 hours cos there was an accident near the tunnel!
