Parliament House training this Monday 8th: Andy, Attlee, Bronwyn, Damian, Ewen, me, Helen, Jodie, Kym, Leanne, Maria, Neil, Ruth.
On a very stormy night I was lucky to experience dry conditions for the drive there, for the 8k early run, and for the drive home later. The lightning and rain kept us in the underground carpark for the warmup and cooldown; and in between the rain eased off long enough to allow us to train outside. Damian fresh from his 2:14 800m run on Saturday did a modified version of what the rest did: he did a surging session while the rest went as fast as possible running 4 or 5 by ~800m with a short break. We got a bit damp that was all.
Last Monday 1st: Abi, Andrew, Attlee, Bronwyn, Christopher, Craig, Damian, Helen, Jennifer (early only), Joel, Kym, Maria, Neil, Ruth, Yelena.
I was away which is why the report is late. Joel and Damian ran hills while the rest ran 3 x 950m circuit with a circuit’s jog in between.
Customs result Friday 5th: Bob 21:45, Bronwyn 23:20, me 29:02, Geoff B 38:00
