man sweat

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, January 02, 2010 with 2 comments
Our weather has been coming down from the tropical north in the last few days. Today was our intense interval day and was one of those days where we wished the clouds would break out into a downpour of rain, but instead the sun occasionally broke through and baked us. Man sweat was experienced by all. It was a record turn-out for Pialligo, and with the promise of goodies and champagne after the session, all the regulars appeared and quite a few more. The training was the last of our 5x690 with 310 jog; I managed a quick time in the first, second, and fourth repeat but not the third and fifth. Most of the others also found it difficult to sustain an effort in the heat and humidity. Running were Craig, Heidi, Janene, Joel, Kathy, Maria, Tony, Troy, Victoria, Yelena & me. Chris and Hugh joined us afterwards in the shade for food and drink. We run at Pialligo for three more weeks (9th, 16th, and 23rd), and then the apple selling season commences so we move elsewhere.

Jossie is having a football autographed by a Swans player. Jossie plays for the Tigers and barracks for the Magpies. Cousin Jarod who is a Swans fan will be mighty jealous. This photo or one like it might appear in the Canberra Times next time they have a junior sports section. Watch out for it.
