The 10k was inked in as my major race for July but I was not well enough to compete.

Parliament House last night: Nadine & I did the long warm-up run. At 5:30pm those joining us for interval training were Andrew, Colin, David, Garry, Helen, Jill, Mick, Neil, Rae, Warrick & Yelena. They ran a 24 minute continuous relay at the "lower flags", four teams of two and a team of three.
