Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

Song of the week: Coldplay's new song, fom

I ran the Longstaff 8k yesterday, results not yet available but it was a good run, 40 seconds slower than two years ago, but very hard going on the clumpy grass.

Next will be the Vets Cross Country championships, just two weeks way, which I must remember to enter in advance, as they are not taking entries on the day. I plan to taper and try to win the M60s. No tapering this week: it was 110k including three races.

The course at Stromlo Forest Park is interesting: the grass is now all white and dead but the surface is firm. Of course, one has to contend with the wind as there is no shelter. No wind this morning when I ran there but pea soup fog and a temperature in the minuses made it quite painful.

Just a note on this coming Saturday's race: the venue has been changed to Watson instead of Goorooyaroo. After the cull they may rename it Gooya (i.e. no more roos.) Surprised they don't close Stromlo Forest Park as there were hundreds of roos there this morning, enough to satisfy every shooter's bloodlust.

  1. Gooya hasn't got the same ring to it, but easier to spell. I'm looking forward to the white smoothness of Stromlo after that awkward surface yesterday.
