Hill Sprints start at Parliament House tonight! Sadly I will only be watching. This week I will give the early jog a miss as I am not allowed to jog yet, and come along and supervise the hill sprints at 5:30pm.

Torn hamstring. Thank you for your consolation and support. Two weeks off seems like forever, but maybe I can resume jogging this Thursday, or soon after. The Physio will tell me on Thursday. No Blewitts Pines Handicap for me this month, how sad ;) Really sad though is knowing that it may take me forever to get back to the sub 21 minute 5ks I was just starting to enjoy...


  1. bummer about the hammy but at least it's only two weeks off...

    I won't be there tonight but will be at next Monday's session with Jodie (hopefully)...

  2. It was good to have you blowing the whistle tonight Geoff. But... if we're really doing 25 x hills off 1 minute next week, I'm not coming!

  3. (a) no we're not doing 25 x hills on 1 minute next week (phew!), and (b) doing only 15 on 2 minutes was good wasn't it, and (c) people think we're absolutely and definitely doing 20 on 90 seconds next week, they have worked out my usual pattern of things, but in truth I haven't yet decided what the plan is, I play it by ear each week when I get there, and there are other little notions jostling for my attention right now about what we might do.

  4. I'm going to do my own hills session tomorrow to make up for missing tonight...I'm going to use the archbishop's hill...I wonder if I can manage 15?!
