"losing ground and gaining speed..."

"... no you haven't lost me yet"

Song of the week: "Yet", by Switchfoot.

"I'll run until my heart caves in". Jon Foreman is the singer/song writer at the front of Switchfoot.

Running at Parliament House yesterday were Andrew, Brett, Bronwyn, Cathy, Damian, me, Helen, Jodie, Katherine B (new), Kym, Leanne, Mick C & Nadine. 200 on 100 off x 12 = 4 laps of the 900m circuit again.

Coming up on Sunday mornings at 8:00am I will be training at SFP, while on the next two Mondays, weather permitting, 18/10 and 25/10, I plan to hold a session of 3-2-1-1/2-1-2-3 mins with same recovery back at Parliament House. After that, from 1 November on, we move back to longer intervals, but if there are 800m specialists attending, which I expect there will be, we will split into two groups with the second group continuing with shorter intervals suitable for 800m runners. Anyone attending can choose to do either types of training.

Lauren's 400m hurdles - not the Australian coverage, as you may notice! Show them how good you are, Lauren.

1. CCC AGM tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Canberra Southern Cross Club Woden at 6pm.

2. Vets Track Thursday, AIS Athletics Track, 6pm

3. Happy Birthday Craig, 42 today!


  1. Refreshing not to have another "go Australia" commentary. Go the Scots! Looks like Lauren may have gone out a tad hard. Still a medal chance in the 4x400.

    Happy birthday Craig!

  2. I agree. Any European commentary on athletics is a welcome change from our Australian version. (not to mention the Americans, when we think of the Olympics. Please, no.)

  3. Love it or leave it fellas ;)

    By the way Speedygeoff or Ewen do you know how I can watch the Commonwealth Games marathon on the net? Can't seem to find how, yet!

  4. Hi Scott. I've no idea about watching, but you can listen to ABC radio streaming online, and they'd have good coverage (and no ads!):

  5. Cool thanks Ewen, will do!

  6. Another agree: and radio has the advantage of being relatively on time, too! Still, marathon vision would be good tomorrow noon our time. I haven't needed to try out streaming radio or TV myself, though.
    The women's hockey final just now was good! any win against NZ is good and this one went to penalty ahootout. So close!

  7. And an "ahootout" is something to behold!
