Training at Parliament House: a fine evening, some easterly breeze, slightly warm for the early run but most pleasant for the interval session. Caroline, Craig & I ran early, with Ruth, Katherine & Ewen close behind. Then we were joined by Abi, Andy, Christopher, Colin, Emma P, Joel, Kym, Mick C, Susan, Suzie, Tim, Yelena & Zac. The 30 minute continuous interval session was in teams of three at the lower flagpole rectangle, where each runner (a) raced down a diagonal (b) jogged a short edge and waited for their relay team member to arrive (c) raced up a long edge (d) jogged a short edge and waited, repeating this until the half hour was up. Which meant each runner had a good recovery while their two team-mates were running. This is the first time we have run such a relay around the lower flagpoles, a slightly longer interval than we had done before when running these "zigzag relays". Next week (or the week after) we may try for even teams and run longer intervals.
Song of the week. "RUN": by Leona Lewis: thanks to Jen for alerting me to this version of my favourite Snow Patrol song.
