2 Lamb, John M60 Australia 57.78 a new M60 ACT record
4 Sims, Geoff M61 Australia 59.01 also under the old ACT M60 record!!!
I am very impressed by all these performances.

EDIT: Sue Archer's time is also an ACT record, the previous record of 21:51.37 was also Sue's, set last March. That's a 24 second improvement!

Stromlo today, perfect sunny weather for our 3 x 1km efforts! We ran the central loop. As I recall,
Troy averaged ~3:30 for each of the kms.
Anthony ran around 3:53, 3:43, 3:33
Heidi ran 3:58, 4:02, 3:57 to get under 4 minutes for the first time
I ran 3:54, 4:00 4:02
Janene ran 4:10, 4:35. 4:03, taking care 6 days after the marathon
Miranda ran about 4:56, 4:58. 5:10


  1. Those masters atheletes do indeed rock! Awesome effort by Sue.

  2. Absolutely fantastic - wow she sure is a pocket rocket! :)

  3. Stromlo times are scarily fast!

    Great run from Sue - also Kathy S in the 5000 - Julie Wilson is some runner. I also noticed there was a W35 who ran 2:12 in the 800m!
