While it made 10 or 11 degrees elsewhere in the ACT yesterday, Holt stayed cold with only an 8 degree maximum, with 35k winds, and light rain (snow-like) flurries coming across from the mountains. Feels like winter! But I had a good run in the BBQ Stakes, nevertheless. Quite a few speedygeese there: I ran for the first time since January and wanted to know if I had improved much since then; the answer is yes, 26:28 is pleasing. Others to run yesterday were Gary 28.37, Helen 28.35 doing long surges, Roger 31.50. In previous runs, the best recent times for Gary & Roger are 27:00 each, Helen ran 26.52 two weeks ago and 26.17 back in April, just 2 seconds outside her long standing pb. Kerrie, Rob & Andy also were there yesterday and ran quite well but I didn't get their times.
Over in Death Valley, where it is hot hot hot, Pam Muston ran the 217km ultra in 39th place outright, 37:49:12.
And speedygeese in the World Masters Athletics, Sacramento California - 800m events: M60 Geoff Sims heat: 2:29.78, semi: 2:23.99, final: 2:24.91 for 10th place. Kathy Sims W60 heat: 2:58.97, final 2:55.92 for 8th place. More racing is to come.
