enforced rest sometimes results in a good race

Posted by speedygeoff On Sunday, March 28, 2010 | 2 comments
After being forced to rest to get over the flu I managed third place in today's 4k handicap. Gary did one better and won silver! Go the geese! I would have done better with uninforced rest. But then, I wouldn't have rested, not this week....and in the 8k Rae Palmer won gold!

The age percentages are low because the "short" course was long!

Warrick will like this, to make up for him just missing the medals today:

Doctor Who premieres in Australia on ABC iView - midnight Friday 16th April


In a first for ABC TV, the new series of Doctor Who will launch on ABC iView – the ABC’s internet broadcasting service – two days prior to its broadcast on ABC1.
Less than two weeks after the first episode airs on the BBC in the UK, Australian viewers will be able to stream it on iView from midnight on Friday 16 April at abc.net.au/iview. The episode will then be shown on ABC1 on Sunday 18 April at 7.30pm

  1. Gary is in a purple patch of form. You did well to be not far behind.

    Wish they'd compensated by making the long course short!

  2. iView is all very well if you have a fast internet connection. I tried it once - it was painful. And there doesn't appear to be a download option. Guess I'll have to watch it on the Sunday.
